Applying to University

Mentor College University Fair

Several years ago, Mentor College introduced its own University Fair. Instead of visiting us one by one, admissions officers from over 25 universities from Ontario and other provinces attend the annual fair at the Main Campus. The 2017-2018 event took place on October 4.

Starting at 6:00, senior students and their parents are invited to visit displays and speak with representatives from the university. At 7:00, each university has its own “break out” room and a series of more-detailed info sessions are held once for students who have narrowed down their options.
