U of G Heads to Ontario Universities' Fair

September 21, 2010 - Campus Bulletin

The University of Guelph and the University of Guelph-Humber will take part in the Ontario Universities' Fair Sept. 24 to 26 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The event is expected to attract more than 110,000 prospective students and their families.

The fair is the largest off-campus recruitment event of the year. It gives prospective students and their families the opportunity to visit displays, attend presentations, collect handbooks and have their questions answered by representatives from all 21 Ontario universities.

Staff from admission services and student service areas from both U of G and Guelph-Humber will be on hand during the fair to answer questions. Faculty, staff and students from both campuses will also share their expertise and knowledge with prospective students.

Fair visitors are primarily senior high school students and their families and teachers and guidance counsellors from the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

U of G encourages students to sign up with their email addresses to receive admission updates, e-newsletters and event invitations. New this year, the University will donate one dollar to Habitat for Humanity in Wellington County for every student who signs up.

The Ontario Universities’ Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
