Brock University is gearing up to open its doors to thousands of potential undergraduate and graduate students and their families for one of the most important days on the recruitment calendar.
Open House will be held Sunday, April 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., when the entire Brock community will join together to welcome guests and ensure a memorable experience on campus.
In the lead-up to the June 1 acceptance deadline for Ontario secondary school applicants, thousands of admission offers have been sent out. The experience applicants have at Open House is often the deciding factor in a student’s journey to Brock.
“It’s incredible to see how the whole Brock community — from students to faculty, staff and senior administration — all come together to share their pride and demonstrate what makes this University exceptional,” said Beth Natale, Director, Recruitment for Brock University.
Natale said one of the highlights of Open House this year will be new Hot Spot guided tours. Student ambassadors will offer the guided tours at five different locations around the University to give visitors a comprehensive look at the Brock campus.
“Having our students share their academic and student life experiences is a critical aspect of Open House,” Natale said. “Potential students want those authentic interactions to better understand what their university experience might be like.”
The main focal point of Open House will once again be an information fair located in Ian Beddis Gymnasium, where faculty, staff and students will be on hand to talk about the full range of undergraduate and graduate academic programs, student services and research opportunities that are available.
Information sessions will delve deeper into specific departments and programs, while snapshots of student and faculty research will be featured throughout campus.
Visitors can also tour residences, research labs, athletic facilities and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts downtown.
Although Ontario secondary school applicants have until June 1 to determine their final plans for September, applications for other students are continually processed throughout the spring and summer. For students considering transferring to Brock, admissions staff will be also be available at Open House to help get them admitted immediately.
