BC Universities and Colleges Hosting Free Public Info Night in Kamloops

October 05, 2015 - 3:06 PM

KAMLOOPS – Fourteen B.C. universities and colleges will be in attendance at a free public Post-Secondary Information Night event on Thursday, Oct. 8 starting at 7:00 pm in the TRU House of Learning - Barber Centre.

This is the second year that PSI-BC will host an evening to help parents of secondary school students better understand the B.C. post-secondary system and access information directly from institutions as they look ahead to making decisions on which college or university program their sons and daughters might attend.

While post-secondary reps have visited high schools in Kamloops and around the province for many years, the school-hour schedule has traditionally made it difficult for parents to participate in the conversation. The evening includes a presentation focused on the many post-secondary options and paths for students in B.C., followed by a fair for attendees to interact directly with reps from all 14 institutions.

PSI-BC is a collaborative, student-centred group acting as partners in supporting students and high school counsellors in B.C. high schools. The group strives to assist each student in their search to find both the institution and the program available in the province that best fits their personal and career objectives.

ATTENDING INSTITUTIONS:

Canadian Forces – RMC; Capilano U; Kwantlen Polytechnic U; Langara College; NVIT; Okanagan College; Quest U; SFU; TRU; TWU; UBC; UNBC; UVIC and VIU
