As a result of the Quebec government’s advisory to close all schools and universities, and cease non-essential mass gatherings, as well as the Canadian Government's recommendation to avoid non-essential international travel, we are obligated to cancel almost all in-person events for newly admitted students. This includes both Campus Connect events on campus and Rendezvous events in cities near you. We sincerely regret not being able to meet you in person, and apologize for the inconvenience these changes may cause you. Given the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, it is in the best interests of all to cancel all in-person events at this time.
