On October 11th, Loretto Abbey hosted its Post Secondary evening. Representatives from over 20 different universities and colleges came to the school to answer questions and provide information about their institutions and programs. Grade eleven and twelve students alongside  their parents attended the event and found it a great way to find out more about the many post-secondary options available.


One of the features that made the event successful was the wide variety of schools that were present. The diversity of the schools gave students a chance to see a wide variety of options that they have for the future. Some of the post-secondary institiutions that attended include The University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, Humber College, Western University, York University, and Seneca College. There were even some specialty schools such as the Toronto Academy of Acting, Toronto Fire Services, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and The Canadian Armed Forces.


”The Abbey university fair was an inspiring and influential experience. Senior students were able to meet face to face with universities and colleges, and clearly interact with alumni and representatives. We also received immediate personalized answers to our questions about programs, residence options, campuses, and more,” said Ann Atta Alla, a grade twelve student.


The benefit of hosting a university fair at Loretto is that there are fewer students and parents than the large university fairs, which made it easier for those who attended to get their questions answered. Additionally, the familiar environment made the experience less stressful and the absence of crowds made the event more intimate for the students and parents who attended.


While choosing a university or college can be daunting, talking to a representative or student from the school is one of the best ways to learn more and have questions answered. Students are also encouraged to visit the schools during Fall Campus Days or to book a tour. Thank you to Ms. Wasiuk, Mr. Stefani, and the guidance team for organizing this event and making it such a success. Best of luck to all of the grade twelve students applying to university this year!
