Representatives from Ontario’s 21 universities will be in Thunder Bay at Hammarskjold High School on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., for the University Information Program (UIP).
This free event offers high school students from the surrounding area, and their parents, the opportunity to speak in-person with multiple university representatives.
The UIP offers students who are considering an Ontario university the opportunity to learn more about admission requirements, scholarships, residence, the application process, campus life, and much more. The event is designed to assist graduating high school students in making an informed decision before they apply to university in January 2016. The event also aims to help younger students with high school course selections in order to guide them toward future university programs.
Students and their parents will have the chance to attend three 30-minute university presentations, followed by a question and answer period. After the presentations, students can attend a “roam-around” session where they can visit each Ontario university representative individually.
Students who are interested in attending are encouraged to confirm the UIP schedule in their area with their guidance office.
The UIP is hosted exclusively by Ontario universities. Each university participates in joint visits to high schools across the province each fall. The event is organized by the Standing Committee on Student Recruitment and the Ontario University Registrars’ Association.
