Descriptive Transcript for Your Guide to the Event Video

Hey Future Gryphons! I’m Jessie Kennedy; Liaison Officer and proud Guelph grad. On behalf of Admission Services and all of U of G, I’m so excited to welcome you to Fall Preview Day and to University of Guelph. U of G is consistently ranked one of Canada’s top comprehensive universities by McLean’s, and we were ranked #1 in student satisfaction again this year!

Our students love being Gryphons because there are so many amazing opportunities for you. That means we have so much for you to explore today at Fall Preview Day! To help you find everything, I want to give you some tips on how to get the most out of your Fall Preview Day experience.

Just below this video, you’ll find our Event Schedule separated into 3 sections – Academic Programs, Student Services and the Student Spotlight Series. This is a great place to start because you’ll see what time all the live info sessions are happening and be able to plan your day around the ones you want to attend! When you’re ready to join, just click the button right in the schedule

You’ll find all the academic program sessions under the “Academic” schedule. Each program is hosting 2 information sessions today, but read the schedule carefully because some of them are offering two different sessions. You can also connect with current students, staff, and faculty from all our programs in their Live Chatsfrom 12-4pm.

Next, in the Student Services section, you can learn more about Admissions, International Admissions, Residence, and Co-op and Experiential Learning at our Info Sessions. If you can’t attend the session times, don’t worry! You can chat with the service representatives from 12-4pm.

We also have our teams from Athletics; Student Wellness and Accessibility; Student Financial Services; Centre for International Programs; Meal Plans and Hospitality, Student Experience; Indigenous Student Centre and the Library providing information sessions and answering questions in their live chats from 1:30-3:30pm!

And make sure you come join me to in our Student Spotlight Series featuring current student telling their gryphon experiences! Just scroll down this page for the link to join.

In addition to the live sessions and chats, you can also find a ton of information on this website. Check out the Admission section for details on Canadian, International, Transfer and Mature student admissions. The Program pages feature our majors, sample first year classes, and where our grads are working now. In the Student Services section, you will learn about all the opportunities to enhance your Gryphon experience outside of the classroom. And while we wish we could host you on our beautiful campus today, we still wanted to bring it to you virtually on the Experience our Campus section.
