Elsie Abrahams, a student in the Graduate Diploma in Administration, was one of those providing information to visiting CEGEP students at the Commerce Open House on November 18 and 19.
About 500 people turned out for the Faculty's first open house. CEGEP students from the Montreal area were invited, and a special red carpet was rolled out for guidance counsellors from the northeastern U.S., a promising source of future Concordia students.
Held in the atrium of the J.W. McConnell Building, the event featured booths for each of the Faculty's four undergraduate programs, plus a wealth of graduate programs and student associations. Some other units of the university also took part.
Students were treated to talks on what a new student might expect at university, job prospects, and the co-op work/study program.
