Ontario University Fair
On Sunday. September 29 eight boarders took the TTC to the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre to visit the annual Ontario University Fair. All twenty-one universities were represented. University booths are set up on the main convention floor; on the 2nd level and every university is designated a room to offer thirty-minute presentations highlighting new programs and facilities.
UCC boarders had the opportunity to talk to admission officers, professors and students who were on hand to provide different perspectives on what each university has to offer. The boys came home with bundles of reading materials to allow them to compare similar programs at different universities.
The window for UCC Year 12 students to make applications to Ontario universities will begin in October and be completed by mid-January. The Ontario University Fair kick-starts the thinking process for many. Boys from Year 10 to Year 12 joined us this year. The next step for our students is to attend university Open Houses. The University of Toronto Open House is Saturday, October 26. Fall Preview Day at Western University is Sunday, November 17, and the Waterloo Open House is Saturday, November 2nd. Traditionally these are universities where UCC students often make applications. We encourage students to get their feet on the ground of the universities where they are most likely going to attend.
