ICYMI: Fall Preview Day 2020

Students at the University of Guelph
Fall Preview Day 2020

In case you missed it - Fall Preview Day 2020 was a huge success!  We were so excited to welcome over a thousand Future Gryphons as they joined our Gryphon family virtually for the first ever online Fall Preview Day (thanks 2020…).

Despite not being on campus, prospective students were able to learn more about our programs and services, get info on admission, watch our campus tour videos, and get a sneak peek into what student life is like at the U of G.  In case you missed it, here’s what Fall Preview Day 2020 looked like!

President’s Welcome

Prospective Gryphons and their families can hear U of G’s new President, Dr. Charlotte Yates, deliver a warm welcome and overview of some of what our top-ranked university has to offer. This video is available on the Fall Preview Day homepage. Check it out!

Campus Tours

Not being able to show off our beautiful campus in-person was perhaps the biggest downfall of having to offer Fall Preview Day virtually, but this didn’t stop our campus tours team from giving it their best shot! Prospective Gryphons got a sneak peek of their future stomping grounds thanks to our series of campus tour videos, available to view on the Experience Our Campus page!  These sixteen 1-minute videos take virtual visitors to many hot spots like the University Centre, the Library, the Bullring, a few landmarks, and also give you a sneak peak at the amazing food we’re famous for. 

Info Sessions

Academic programs and student services Info Sessions and online chats were the highlight of Fall Preview Day 2020. U of G Admissions experts also gave talks on the admissions process and requirements, finances, their personal journeys as a Gryphon, and more.  As well as being extremely informative, Info Sessions were a great way for future Gryphons to get their first “online lecture” experience!

Did You Miss Out On The Fun?

Don’t worry! You can still RSVP for a liaison presentation or webinar, check out our Campus Experience page, or chat with a current U of G student about what life as a  Gryphon is really like. Still craving more U of G? Be sure to connect with us on social media so you never miss a thing!
