Fall Open House: 2019

Fall is a great time to visit universities. University campuses look especially beautiful dressed in autumnal colours.

For many high school students, the thought of visiting university campuses conjures up feelings of anxiety. What should be enjoyable experiences, can feel like lonely fact-finding missions. One way to reduce the stress of campus visits, and to maximize the amount of information gathered, is to visit campuses during open houses.

Open houses are an excellent way to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a student at universities on your list. During your visits you can speak with current students, meet with staff and faculty, and often even experience a lecture and check out laboratories. There are few better ways to gain a sense for the distinct personality of a university.

Virtually all universities host some kind of fall event. Most offer programming to provide students, and their families, a deeper understanding of the university’s academic programs, support services, and even to sample the campus’ gastronomy.

So, if you have some time this fall, or plan to visit Canada, be sure to visit a few campuses. You don’t have to do it alone.  Grab a few friends, plan a road trip and have a little fun at open houses.
