Tips Tuesday – Episode 1: Make the Most of Fall Preview Day

Posted: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 11:28

We definitely think that you should apply to the U of G – but you need to experience it to believe it. Join us Sunday, November 5th for Fall Preview Day and witness the U of G community first-hand.

Here’s some tips on how to live life to the fullest on Fall Preview Day:

Tip #1: Become a Gryphon for a Day

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, visiting a campus is the best way to picture yourself there for the next 4 years.

If you ask a Gryphon, chances are they will say the energy on campus when they visited had them hooked. At the Academic and Student Services resource fair, you will meet with students, faculty and staff and hear their stories of why they chose the U of G, their involvement and all that U of G has to offer.

Tip #2: Go On a Walking Tour

Our walking tours and building drop-ins are arguably the most important part of Fall Preview Day.

Explore campus and experience what it would be like to call the U of G home. You will have the opportunity to visit residences, check out student spaces and take a look inside many of our academic buildings including Macdonald Hall (our Business hub), Thornbrough (the Engineering complex), Zavitz Hall (home of Studio Arts) and more!

Tip #3: Attend an Info Session

There will be 20-minute information sessions on various topics throughout the day. Topics include:

  • Living in residence
  • Co-operative Education
  • Our Admission plan
  • Financing your education

There will also be 45-minute general presentations that cover everything from our academic programs to our many student services. This presentation will get into the nitty gritty of life at the U of G!

Tip #4: Take in Fall on Campus

The U of G campus is beautiful in every season – but the colours of the leaves in autumn are enough to make you “fall” in love. You might even witness some grads taking their photos in the leaves!Slack Line

So we’ve either convinced you to visit U of G or you’re still on the fence. Either way, registration for Fall Preview Day is now open and we recommend you register now! See you there, #futuregryphons!
