That time of year is here again! No, its not quite time for finals just yet, its the time of year when Brandon University puts on their open house. This year’s open house will take place on Tuesday, February 20th from 10:30AM to 2:30PM.
This is when BU opens its doors to potential and future students. While current BU students will be enjoying their February break many future students will be visiting the campus for the first time. Attendees will be able to see first hand what type of education is offered at BU. Representatives from all five faculties will be there, including the Faculties of Arts, Music, Science, Health Studies and Education! Attendees will be given the chance to sit in on lectures and attend demonstrations throughout the campus. They will also have the chance to go on full campus tours and get a glimpse of what BU has to offer. Potential students will also have the opportunity to apply for university at the open house. Attendees can bring a copy of their interim transcript and begin the process of becoming a BU student! To top it all off many different booths at the open house will be hosting a series of activities in which prizes are up for grabs!
