Ontario University Fair

The Ontario Universities Fair is this weekend in Toronto.

I attended the fair last year and posted the following advice:

1) Give yourself enough time. I was in the fair for six hours and I did not get to see everything I wanted to see from the display booths. I did not even get to the presentations.

2) Water – bring a bottle of water, you are going to be there for awhile.

3) Running shoes – thankfully, I was too lazy to bother to put on anything other than jeans today and as such, I was wearing my nicely worn runners. (Fashion has never been my thing)

4) SWAG – the key to any going to any university recruitment event is to get the free stuff.

I’m going to add one more piece; be prepared to wait. This point reinforces 1, 2, and 3.

The fair is limited to Ontario’s public universities.

The Maclean’s Virtual Fair will include post-secondary institutions from across Canada. You can still register for the V-Fair here.

If you live in the Toronto area, make the trip to the OUF and sign up for the V-Fair; you can never be too informed.
