About 170 prospective students and their families turned out for an information session on the University of Windsor, January 10 in North York.
Guests had an opportunity to learn about the advantages UWindsor offers its students; meet with current students, faculty, and staff; and ask questions about campus life, services, residences, awards, admissions, and academic programs, says Lionel Walsh, assistant vice-president for North American recruitment.
He says several attendees approached him to say they appreciated the University making an outreach effort, especially with the January 17 application deadline imminent.
“One mother said that she got such a warm feeling from us that she was now very comfortable sending her daughter to UWindsor,” Walsh says. “Overall, the response was very positive and our faculty and staff were very busy talking to prospective students right up until the end of the event.”
He notes that success was due to the participation of instructors, staff, and students who welcomed guests and provided information on the University, as well as the financial support of the president’s and provost’s offices.
