On Tuesday night, 29 universities and their affiliate colleges set up shop in the NS Gym at the Main Campus for the 6th annual Mentor College University Fair. University reps from across Ontario, Quebec, other parts of Canada, and the world (Poland) were on hand to answer students’ and parents’ questions on everything from residence to meal plans.
Students enjoyed picking up booklets and brochures from the visiting universities and some took advantage of joining the schools’ mailing lists.
Grade 12 student Venessa Sectakof had this to say: “I liked being able to talk to the reps one-on-one. It was something we didn’t have at the downtown university fair in September…Going there made me feel a lot more confident about this coming year.” Ishaan Selby added, “I appreciated the out-of-province university presence because it created a broader spectrum of prospective universities.”
