Open House provides opportunity to explore undergraduate and graduate studies alike

There’s no better way to decide on a major commitment than to try something on for fit. The University of Lethbridge is offering just that over the next few days with a pair of Open House opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.

Open House takes place Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the University’s Lethbridge campus, where nearly 700 registrants will have the opportunity to explore the ULethbridge experience in person.

On Saturday, Oct. 28, the Graduate Studies Virtual Open House will present a similar opportunity to graduate students who are looking to continue their post-secondary studies. More than 500 people have already registered for that event.

WHAT: Open House and Graduate Studies Virtual Open House

WHEN: Open House (in-person event) is Saturday, Oct. 21, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Virtual Graduate Open House is Saturday, Oct. 28, 9 a.m. to Noon and 3 to 6 p.m.

WHERE: ULethbridge (Lethbridge campus) and online (Graduate Open House)

“We’re thrilled with the response we’ve had in terms of registrations and are looking forward to showcasing everything ULethbridge has to offer,” says Asheley Cowie, manager, National Recruitment. “This is such a valuable opportunity for students and their families to explore our campus, meet professors, other students, graduates and staff, and really get an idea of what ULethbridge is all about. There’s nothing like a ULethbridge experience, it truly is unique and Open House will give you that sneak peek.”

In addition to being able to apply for on-the-spot admission and be entered in a draw for a $1,000 tuition credit, students can get help applying for scholarships and awards and student housing. As well, they’ll get a first look at the work-integrated and experiential learning opportunities available to all ULethbridge students, learn how they can participate in research, fine arts and athletics, and even try their hand at the stock market by participating in a trading simulation exercise. The ULethbridge Gameshow is also a chance to test your knowledge to snag some amazing prizes.

Morning and evening sessions are available for potential graduate students taking part in the Graduate Studies Virtual open House. A variety of virtual booths will be available, allowing students to interact with faculty, staff and current graduate students.

“We really wanted to give our potential graduate students the chance to get first-hand insight from those who know ULethbridge best,” says Cowie. “The virtual booths are designed to answer the key questions students need answered, all while showcasing the wide range of academic programs we have to offer, the cutting-edge research opportunities available and the student life for which we’re so well known.”
