Showcasing Brock during Fall Preview Day

Brock University is rolling out the red carpet for prospective students next month.

Over 4,000 students and parents will come to Brock on Nov. 8 for Fall Preview Day and recruiters are already preparing to make their visit one to remember.

“We will give our prospective students the best experience possible,” said recruitment manager Melissa Beamer.

She said campus visits are often the deciding factor for students making their top post-secondary pick.

And Brock’s warm and friendly atmosphere, combined with its safe and modern campus, are major selling features.

“The number one thing people always mention when they come here is the feeling of community. It feels like it could be home,” Beamer said.

She said everyone on campus plays a roll in that sense of community, from students and staff to faculty.

“It really is a team effort,” she said. “Every single person has a role on this team.”

The day will give people a chance to explore the campus, meet with faculty, staff and students and learn more about Brock.

Information sessions will be held throughout the afternoon and new this year is a trip to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.

“It’s a chance for them to try us on for size,” Beamer said. “”We’re a mid-sized university with a smaller-school feel.”

She said students are encouraged to visit the schools they are considering because it’s the best way to know if a university is a good fit.
