Last year on November 6, Brock University set a new record. An estimated 4,300 people, including potential new students to families, came to visit the campus and explore prospective undergraduate programs as a part of Brock’s annual Fall Preview Day. The turnout was the largest in Brock’s history. Brock is looking to replicate last year’s successes, with Fall Preview scheduled for, November 5 from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Fall Preview Day will see all of the major faculties at Brock hosting events in order to attract potential new students. The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences will host a Nursing Lab Drop-in session. The Goodman School of Business will host a presentation in Sean O’Sullivan Theatre, in addition to a seminar on ‘big data’. The Humanities faculty will be facilitating tours for guests to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts all afternoon. Mathematics & Science will be hosting an information booth on Computer Sciences, and the Social Sciences will be giving a ‘real world’ lecture demonstration on mass shootings. In addition, there will be specific presentations from Brock Residence, the Co-op Offices, the International Department. A seminar on financing for post-secondary education is also scheduled.
For the Preview day, Brock is trying to recruit volunteers from the student body on campus to come out and assist with setup and facilitating the day’s events. Carly Dugo, the Recruitment Officer for Campus Initiatives for the Office of Recruitment and Liaison, stated that getting upper-year students involved and representing their program for Fall Preview Day is crucial to bringing new students into the Brock community.
“Fall Preview Day is often the first time for prospective students to visit campus and experience what Brock’s community has to offer,” Dugo. “At this event our guests have the opportunity to tour campus, visit residences, meet faculty, staff and current students, and attend presentations or experience opportunities.”
Dugo also discussed how interested students can get involved in the activities.
“If you would like to show your Brock spirit and help welcome our future Badgers, we would love for you to volunteer”, Dugo explained. “Volunteers will help with greeting guests, directional assistance, hot-spot style tours and share their amazing Brock experiences!”
