More than 200 staff, faculty, and students helped make thousands of new connections for Queen’s during the Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Sept. 27-29.

Queen’s introduced a new state-of-the-art booth for the largest post-secondary educational fair in Canada, which attracted close to 120,000 attendees.

The event gives prospective students and their families the opportunity to speak with representatives from Ontario’s 21 universities. The Queen’s team gave multiple presentations each day with each session attracting a large crowd.

The OUF also unofficially marks the beginning of the recruitment season for Canadian universities. More information about Queen’s school visits is available on the Undergraduate Admission website.

The next big recruitment event is the Queen’s Fall Preview Open House, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 17, with more than 8,000 students and their families expected to visit the university to get a taste of the Queen’s experience. Once again, hundreds of faculty, staff and students will be on campus promoting the university, their faculties, schools, departments and programs. Campus-wide participation and engagement in these events makes a significant impression on prospective students and families. Registration is available online.

Campus tours are also available and can be booked at the Undergraduate Admission website.
