Annual event showcases university experience on January 27
McGill University will throw open its doors to welcome prospective students during its annual Open House on Sunday, Jan. 27. The day-long, campus-wide event will provide a unique opportunity to experience student life at McGill. In addition to campus tours, faculty information sessions and demonstrations, this year’s Open House will feature an exciting range of exhibitions and activities for the students and their families.
“Open House offers something for everyone,” says Kathleen Massey, University Registrar & Executive Director Enrolment Services. “We’re thrilled to roll out the red carpet for prospective students and their families and showcase what McGill has to offer.”
Highlights include an exhibit of recent archeological finds from Parc Safari (lobby, Peterson Hall, 3460 McTavish St.), special live performances by Drama and Theatre students (Moyse Hall, Arts Building, 853 Sherbrooke St. West), and a SMART S.T.A.R.T (Students Talking about Real Topics) discussion panel that will allow prospective students to ask questions about all things McGill.
