Brock University a top choice with Ontario high school students
Published on January 22 2014
When the deadline fell at midnight Jan. 15, Brock University had nearly 16,000 applications from Ontario high school students.
The University is expecting to welcome approximately 4,000 new students in September, similar to recent years.
The total number of applications is fractionally lower than last year, reflecting a province-wide dip, but Brock officials said the University increased its market share of students who made it their first choice, in a year when most of its main competitors lost market share.
Kim Meade, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President Student Services, said this is a strong signal that Brock continues to be a top choice among Ontario’s high school students.
“We are not surprised,” Meade said. “Key events last fall indicated that Brock is on the radar for students and their parents. Our showing at the Ontario Universities’ Fair in Toronto was one of our strongest to date, and we had a record number of guests come to our campus for Fall Preview Day in November.”
