Over 70 high school students across the province are taking part in UPEI’s first ever open class days being held March 18 and 19. UPEI invited high school students to attend classes, have lunch, tour the university, and experience what a university class is all about.
“This is a great opportunity for students to experience UPEI in the company of friends and classmates,” said Christian Lacroix, Interim Vice-President Academic. The open class days initiative was led by the offices of the Vice-President Academic, Recruitment, and the UPEI Student Union.
Students were able to register in a variety of classes from the nursing, science, arts, and business programs including first-year to fourth-year courses. On Monday, lunch was hosted by the Atlantic Veterinary College and followed with guided tours of the facility. Tuesday’s lunch will be hosted by the UPEI Student Union and will follow with campus tours.
