    This presentation will help you explore your interests, reflect on your goals, and discover which program(s) may be the right fit for you.

University offers a new routine, so we will explore sample student schedules. You'll also learn about enriching opportunities you can get involved in outside the classroom to ensure you make the best memories throughout your years in post-secondary education! Ages 13-18.
