Information night targets students, parents
Through information sessions, interactive displays and tours of laboratory and research facilities, "Science and Engineering Night" is intended to give students, parents, teachers and guidance counsellors a look at Guelph's teaching and research programs across the physical and biological sciences, environmental sciences and agriculture.
Visitors will meet faculty, students and working professionals to discuss admission requirements, co-op education, student life, women in science and engineering, professional and student organizations, and employment opportunities.
Offered for the past four years by the School of Engineering, the event was broadened this year to include the entire College of Physical and Engineering Science, the College of Biological Science and the Ontario Agricultural College.
"We're trying to have more a co-ordinated effort in recruiting high school students and to show how all of our programs are interdisciplinary," said Laura Thomas, program counsellor and liaison officer in the School of Engineering.
The event is being organized by Guelph's Science Liaison Working Group, which includes Thomas and her counterparts in several units across campus as well as a member of Admission Services.
For more information, call Thomas at 824-4120, Ext. 2436.
