Post secondary information night set

Fourteen B.C. universities and colleges will be in attendance at a free public post-secondary information night event on Thursday, October 5 starting at 7 p.m. at the UNBC Campus – Bentley Centre.

This is the fourth year that PSI-BC is hosting an evening for parents and local secondary school students, to help them 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 they might attend.

While post-secondary reps have visited high schools in Prince George 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 13 institutions in attendance.

PSI-BC is a collaborative, student-centred group of post-secondary institutions 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: BCIT, Canadian Forces – RMC; College of New Caledonia; Justice Institute of BC; Northern Lights College; NVIT; Okanagan College; SFU; TRU; TWU; UBC; UNBC; UVIC and Vancouver Island University
