Record attendance is anticipated Sunday for an event meant to showcase what being a Brock student is all about.
Fall Preview Day — the University’s largest on-campus fall recruiting event — is expected to draw more than 4,000 prospective students and their families on Sunday, Nov. 5. The annual event is geared toward high school students, those looking to transfer from other post-secondary institutions and prospective graduate students, and aims to provide information about Brock’s programs, facilities and student services from residences to dining options.
“It’s a great day for students to experience everything there is to know about Brock, to speak with faculty, staff and students from all of our programs and services,” said Kara Kelly, Manager, Recruitment Communications. “It’s a chance to have all of their questions answered in one day.”
Guests will have the opportunity to attend subject-specific presentations, explore various labs, watch athletic demonstrations and participate in interactive activities.
“It includes many ways to get hands-on experience and explore what it’s like to be a Brock student,” Kelly said.
Fall Preview Day runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with Walker Sports Complex acting as the main hub for the event. Tours and experiential opportunities will run throughout the day, in addition to an information fair that begins at 1 p.m. in the Ian Beddis Gymnasium.
Free parking will be available throughout the day.
Tours of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines will also take place hourly beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday. For anyone wishing to explore the main campus while also visiting the downtown venue, a shuttle will be provided leaving the main campus at 1:30 p.m.
More than 400 members of the Brock community, including faculty, staff and student volunteers, come together to host the popular recruitment event and engage prospective Badgers in various activities.
Students can register for the event online or in person on Sunday. By registering for Fall Preview Day, students are automatically entered into a $10,000 draw that will support tuition and residence in fall 2018.
