The best way to decided if a university is right for you is to visit the campus.  Check the universities' website to see if when they are holding an Open House or Fall Preview Day.  You should also be able to book a campus tour.

Since not all event information was available at the time of the production of the handout below, remember to check the universities’ websites for more information about Preview Days, Open Houses and Campus Tours.  You can also check http://www.electronicinfo.ca/ for a list of Campus Visits & Events, as well as a lot of other valuable information!Open House 2.jpg

College and university rep visits to O.S.S.

Grade 12 students who are considering college or university next year may be interested to hear presentations by college and university reps who will discuss things like:  campus life, scholarships, programs, residence, etc.  Look through the calendar and, if you are interested in attending any presentations, sign up in Guidance.  You will notice that some visits have been scheduled over the lunch-hour.  Usually the representative will set up a display in the front forum area and you will be able to ask questions and/or pick up a viewbook at that time.

This year, OSS is pleased to be hosting two special events:

 * UIP, University Information Program on Thursday, October 19th, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

 * APSIP, the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program on Tuesday, October 31st

Please also note that a representative from Lakehead University will be returning to OSS on Thursday, December 7th at lunchtime!

Campus Vibez

This educational tool gives a well-rounded view of all major Canadian universities and colleges through videos (both staff and student curated).

The videos:

  • Show the student perspective on each university/college
  • Provide in depth campus tours for students who are unable to visit campuses
  • Reduce student anxiety about the “unknown” as they can now experience university/college life beforehand
  • Are a great tool for parents
