WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University will open its doors for its annual fall Laurier Day open houses, Friday, Nov. 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Waterloo campus and Friday, Nov. 11, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Brantford campus.
Laurier Day at both campuses 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. “The Laurier Day 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 the day in the Fred Nichols Campus Centre concourse, where they can browse booths about admissions and financial aid, learn about campus clubs and student services at the student life fair, join a campus tour, and get more information on other events and sessions happening across campus.
There will be an arts and science information fair in the Science Building courtyard from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a business and economics information fair in the KPMG Atrium in the Schlegel Centre running from 9 a.m. to 1:30 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 2:30 p.m. in room A431 in the John Aird Centre.
