Concordia is holding an open house aimed squarely at potential students.
On Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the campus will be swarming with young
people and their parents.
The busiest areas will be the atrium of the J.W. McConnell library complex,
where equipment and student projects from the Faculty of Engineering and
Computer Science will be on display; the Hall Building, where Arts and
Science will take over the main floor; and the John Molson School of Business
and the Faculty of Fine Arts will have displays on the mezzanine.
All Faculties will show their wares in the smart rooms on
the fourth floor of the Hall Building throughout the day.
It will be show time, all the time, in the D.B. Clarke Theatre, accessed
from the Hall Building lobby, with virtually non-stop performances by
students in music, theatre and contemporary dance.
Fifteen-minute information sessions called Discover Concordia will provide
general information about the university, and visitors will be encouraged
to check out all the displays, performances and presentations. A special
presentation aimed at international students will be given in H-110. Staff
from Admissions will be on hand to help answer questions.
Refreshments will be offered to everyone in the tunnel connecting the
two building downtown. Campus tours will take place from 10 a.m. to 4,
every hour on the hour, with a trained student guide. Door prizes are
also being awarded.
At Loyola, visitors can take in several varsity games (see schedule, page
11), and the rink in the arena has been reserved from 11 to 12:30 pm for
free skating, although you must bring your own skates.
The Open House is an initiative of the universitys Recruitment Office.
