WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University will open its doors for its annual fall open houses, Friday, Nov. 2 at the Waterloo campus and Friday, Nov. 9 at the Brantford campus. Both open houses take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The fall open houses will feature guided campus and residence tours, information fairs and many opportunities to learn about academic programs, admissions, financial aid and student life. Laurier faculty, staff and students will also be on hand to answer questions.

“Choosing a university is a big decision – one that can be made a little easier by experiencing a university first hand,” said Holly Cox, director of Recruitment and Admissions. “Our fall open houses are a wonderful opportunity for students and their families to speak with staff, faculty and students to learn about life at Laurier and to have all of their questions answered.”

At the Waterloo campus, students and their families are invited to start their day at the headquarters booth in the Fred Nichols Campus Centre, where they can meet Recruitment staff, get directions and ask questions. The Student Life and Student Services fairs begin at 10 a.m. in the same location. Students can learn about the Wilfrid Laurier University Students’ Union, campus clubs, getting involved on campus, first year success factors and the admissions process.

There will be an Arts and Science information fair in the Science Building courtyard and a Business and Economics information fair in the KPMG Atrium in the Schlegel Centre from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students can experience Laurier's music program first hand at the Faculty of Music open house. A free concert will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall.

At Laurier’s Brantford campus on Nov. 9, students and parents are invited to start the day in the Carnegie Building, where campus tours will begin at 9 a.m. and run throughout the day until 3 p.m. There will also be hourly University 101 sessions starting at 9 a.m. The goal of these sessions is to answer questions about Laurier and university life, provide resources and offer helpful tips.

An information fair will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Wilkes House Recreation Centre, where students can explore the variety of support services, student clubs and athletics and recreation options that are available to them. Guests may also tour the Brantford campus residence buildings at their leisure between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
