If early registration numbers for Brock’s Fall Preview Day are any indication, prospective students and their families are eager to explore all that the University has to offer.
Thousands of potential Badgers have signed up to visit Brock’s main campus and downtown arts school on Sunday, Nov. 6 during the first Fall Preview Day held in person since 2019.
Held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the University’s largest on-campus recruiting event offers visitors a chance to attend Faculty- and program-specific presentations, explore various labs and facilities, attend an 80-booth information fair, and tour the scenic campus as they learn what the Brock experience is all about.
“Our registration has been quickly climbing and we’re expecting a very big crowd on Sunday,” says Kara Kelly, Brock’s Manager, Recruitment Operations and Communication. “Introducing students to the Brock community in person provides a level of engagement that’s difficult to duplicate through a computer screen. We’re thrilled to again be welcoming prospective students to campus, where they can get a glimpse into what their future at the University could look like.”
Visitors will gain insight into the programs, services and supports available at Brock, learning about all aspects of university life and having their questions answered by faculty, staff and current students. The day will include information not only for high school applicants, but also for transfer and mature students.
An increased number of tours and drop-in opportunities will welcome prospective students into labs and classrooms across campus, visiting a wide variety of spaces including the state-of-the-art Nursing Clinical Simulation Lab, Institute for Lifespan Development Research and Brock University Library Makerspace. A shuttle will also be available from the main campus for visitors looking to explore the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines.
The wealth of tours, presentations and other sessions offered throughout the day are made possible by the support of departments from across the University, who look forward to being a part of the energetic day, says Carly Dugo, Recruitment Officer, Campus Initiatives.
“We hear time and time again that the experiences people have when they come to campus not only make them feel welcomed, but also get them excited to put Brock on their applications,” she says. “The sense of community at Brock University is second to none. We’re excited to work together to show prospective students why this is a great place to break through.”
