January to May: Bring Your Class to Campus

Our on-campus visit program is designed to help high school students explore their university options, get a real taste of academic and campus life, and to prepare for the transition to university. We usually welcome students in Grades 10 and 11.
Most teachers opt for 2 hours on campus; we’ll help you plan a visit that fits your schedule.

Build your visit with the following options:

Mock Lecture

Experience a university class! Choose from a selection of lectures, each taking an interdisciplinary, interactive look at a relevant, current issue. Presented by a student recruitment professional. Approximate duration: 1 hour.

This lecture looks at the use of French as an international language across the world, and how French is applied in an everyday context. It is also designed to inspire students to embrace bilingualism as it helps the brain and can open doors to a wide range of career and travel opportunities. We will also review Glendon’s French Studies program as an example of the international Francophonie present on our campus. This is an interactive, fun presentation that encourages students to speak and participate in French. Presentations are available in French or bilingually. 

In this workshop-style presentation, students learn how to use social media platforms to showcase their unique personalities and abilities. Students are invited to use their Smartphone or tablet, individually or in groups, to create and tailor their professional personal to better compete in today’s plugged-in world. Presentations are available in French, English, or bilingually.
In this interactive presentation we will highlight the programs and other features of a Glendon education, with an emphasis on the value of continuing in French at the university level. To ensure a benefit to all students, we also offer helpful tips on navigating the admissions process, choosing a field of study and maximizing scholarship opportunities. Presentations are available in French, English, or bilingually.

Campus Tour

One of our student ambassadors will show your class around our campus, exploring the facilities, services, and activities on campus. Tours are offered in English, French, or bilingually.
Approximate duration: 1 hour.

Lunch

Include some down time in your day! If you’d like to stay for a meal, we can assist you in organizing lunch on campus through our food services team.
