It’s the most dreaded question all high school students face; asked by distant family members, as an ice breaker, and, ever increasingly, by your parents. “What are your plans for University?” Nowadays, a University education is the norm, a prerequisite for employment of almost any kind. If you’re anything like me you have no idea what you want to do with your entire life. Luckily, if you’re in a grade 12 home form at Garneau, your decision was made a little bit easier Thursday morning.
This year at the University Fair, universities such as Ryerson, University of Toronto, Carleton, Western, Queen’s, and Waterloo came to visit the school. Students got the opportunity to walk around to different tables, talking to the liaisons from the various universities. “We come to encourage students to visit the campus and to provide information to help students make an informed decision,” said one of the liaison officers. If you didn’t get the chance to visit the Ontario University Fair at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this past weekend or wanted to ask more questions, this was a great opportunity.
Many Garneau students were looking forward to the event. “It’s important to think about my future,” says one Garneau student. “Having different universities here is great.” The University Fair is a great chance to learn more, whatever you’re planning on doing with your future.
