VIU hosts spring break activity days

Vancouver Island University is hosting Spring Break Days from today through Thursday (March 18-20) to welcome new applicants, prospective students and community members.

Daytime and evening sessions will be held.

“It’s an ideal time for students and/or their parents to take advantage of spring break and explore post-secondary options at VIU,” said Tina McComb, director, enrolment management.

“During daytime sessions, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., we’ll offer campus tours and opportunities for attendees sit in on classroom lectures, and meet and engage with faculty and other students. Staff will be available to answer questions about the application process and more.”

Evening sessions, which begin at 6:30 p.m., are tailored to prospective students and community members interested in learning about specific VIU programs. Registration is not required.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities and Faculty of Social Sciences will host evening sessions tonight, while faculties of Science and Technology and Management will hold sessions Thursday.

“Prospective students, parents  and community members more than  welcome to attend,” said McComb.

Please register for daytime events by e-mailing cu@viu.ca. Evening sessions are open to all.
