Western’s annual Fall Preview Day rolls out the purple carpet

Western University is hosting its annual Fall Preview Day on Sunday, November 16, providing 11,000 future students, their families and friends, an opportunity to explore Canada’s most beautiful campus and learn why Western offers the best student experience among Canadian universities.

“This is a terrific opportunity for prospective students and parents to experience Western for themselves,”said Lori Gribbon, Western’s Director of Undergraduate Recruitment and Admissions. “It’s a great way to learn more about the quality and variety of Western’s academic programs, opportunities for co- and extra-curricular activities that enhance the classroom experience, opportunities to gain international experience, and the spirit and pride that permeates Western’s campus.:

Visitors, from across Canada, the United States and around the world, will have the opportunity to see all undergraduate and professional faculties and attend various academic information sessions, mini lectures, lab tours and demonstrations, displays, student panels, and faculty tours.

Guests can also explore campus from corner to corner through campus bus and walking, residence, and recreation centre tours.

In September 2014, Western welcomed its largest first-year class, including 5,314 full-time students.
