This weekend is going to be particularly busy on campus.

On Saturday, March 9, more than 4,500 prospective grade 11 and 12 students and their families are expected to attend March Break Open House.

The day-long annual event offers campus tours, mini-lectures, opportunities to speak with current students, faculty and staff, faculty- and school-based programming, and general information sessions on topics including residence, finances, and the application process. Hundreds of faculty, staff and students are on hand all across campus to answer questions about their departments, programs, and services.

“It is always exciting to welcome so many potential students and families to campus,” says Ann Tierney, Vice Provost and Dean of Student Affairs. “This is an important time as students make decisions about where to study next year and we want to do all we can to ensure they have the information they need to make the decision that is best for them.”

This year, March Break Open House will be showcasing some of the new spaces in Mitchell Hall. The Student Services Fair will be held in the atrium, where visitors can talk with representatives from Student Awards, Undergraduate Admission and Recruitment, Career Services, the Student Experience Office, Girls SySTEM, Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre, Athletics and Recreation, Queen’s Student Diversity Project, the City of Kingston, and First-years-Not-in-Residence.
