The Ontario Universities’ Fair will be taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from September 25-27, and you best believe we’ll be there! In case you need a little convincing regarding why you should attend, here are our top 5 reasons:
1. Meet staff, faculty and students from your program(s) of interest
Interested in one, two, THREE (!?) programs at Ryerson? At the Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF) there will be representatives from every undergraduate program we offer. Staff and faculty can let you know what your classes will be like, what opportunities are available for their students, and what’s to be expected from an academic standpoint. Students will give you the lowdown on all things related to the student experience. Even if you’re not 100% sure what you’re interested in, talking with members of the Ryerson community can help! We’re one big happy Ramily, and anyone wearing one of the snazzy shirts pictured above is there to answer your questions.
2. Interact with student life community members
Want to learn about Zone Learning? Or perhaps find out what living in residence is like? Maybe you have questions about what support services are available at Ryerson? Good news! We’ll have members from all over our community that can answer questions about life at Ryerson. These fantastic individuals and teams will be located in the centre of our booth – be sure to stop by and say hi!
3. Attend a Ryerson presentation
Are you the type of person who likes to sit back and take it all in? Ryerson will have presentations in room 716B. Our presentation offers an overview of the university, and addresses any general questions you might have. On Friday and Saturday the first presentation starts at 10 AM, and the last presentation starts at 4 PM. On Sunday the first presentation starts at 10 AM, and the last presentation starts at 3 PM. Presentations are every hour on the hour. You can check out the full presentation schedule for OUF here.
4. All of Ontario’s universities in one location
Say what? That’s right, all 21 Ontario universities will be in attendance. We can’t help but say that they are all fantastic places to learn, but what’s most important is that you find the best fit for you. Get out there and ask questions! OUF is an excellent opportunity to collect handbooks and swag from each school, and get the information you need.
5. A reason to be in Toronto
It’s pretty great that the OUF takes place in Toronto. We love our city, and would be so happy if you had the opportunity to experience it too. In case you need to be further convinced that Toronto is awesome check out this, this, this, and this!
