Western’s Fall Preview Day provides day of discovery

Western University is hosting its annual Fall Preview Day on Sunday, November 15, providing over 10,000 future students, their families and friends, an opportunity to meet faculty, staff and students and learn why Western offers the best student experience among Canadian Universities.

“We encourage all prospective students and parents to visit campus and experience firsthand how Western could change their lives,” said Lori Gribbon, Western’s Director of Undergraduate Recruitment and Admissions. “It’s important to get an in-depth look at our academic programs, our residences, the strong network of support services, international opportunities and to experience the spirit and pride that permeates our beautiful campus.”

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

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

In September 2015, Western welcomed approximately 5,200 full-time first year students.
