WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University will open its doors for its annual March Break Open Houses, Wednesday, March 16 at Laurier Brantford and Friday, March 18 at Laurier Waterloo.

The March Break Open Houses give potential students and their families a first-hand opportunity to learn about academic programs, admissions, financial aid and student life. Laurier faculty, staff and students will be on hand to answer questions and give guided tours.

“Choosing a university is a huge decision for students and their families, and finding a campus that feels like home is important,” said Holly Cox, Laurier’s director of recruitment and admissions. “The March Break Open Houses are a wonderful opportunity for students to speak with staff, faculty and students to learn about life at Laurier and to have all of their questions answered.”

Laurier Brantford’s open house takes place March 16, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Students and their families can take a campus tour, walk through residences, attend academic sessions and learn how to get involved. There will also be sessions on Laurier Brantford’s two newest programs: Youth and Children’s Studies and Business Technology Management. For a complete schedule of events, visit:
