Posted on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Campus Day is on Sunday, March 25th Future Gryphons, so we’re sharing how to make the most out of your day.

Tip #1: Talk to people in your program of interest

Our Academic Resources Fair will have professors and current students on hand to chat about program specifics and to answer any questions you have. This is your chance to hear firsthand about student experiences, so don’t be shy!

Tip #2: Attend an Academic Information Session

Each program will be hosting a half hour session covering the basics on course requirements and academic opportunities. Visit the Campus Day webpage to plan your visit using our session schedule.

Tip #3: Visit program facilities

Thinking of applying to Bachelor of Science? You’ll get the chance to tour our Science Complex and see the labs you’ll be working in.

Considering Studio Arts? Tour the studios in the Arts building; Zavitz Hall.

Engineering? Thornborough is ready for you to visit.

Commerce? The newly renovated MacDonald Hall is open for you to explore.

And, those are just examples…

Most academic buildings will be offering presentations and demonstrations, so if there is something specific you want to see, check out our online schedule and make note.

Tip #4: Tour the campus

Experience the beauty of campus in the spring. Check out our residence halls, dining facilities, historic and modern academic buildings, and see our state-of-the-art athletic facilities first-hand.

Tip #5: Try our food!

U of G food has been ranked #1 on any Canadian university campus for over 10 years. Our most popular campus eateries will be open for you to try on Campus Day. Read our recent article for our must-try dining locations!
