Happy Holidays from the Admissions and Recruitment team!

Posted by Amber Vibert on December 20, 2014 at 9:27 AM

As the days are getting colder, exams here at UOIT are all wrapped up, or maybe you’re getting ready to start your exams in January. But first, the holidays! Time to spend and catch up with family, time to shop, time to relax and time to ring in the New Year!

From our team to you, we’d like to wish you Happy Holidays!

Sometimes we like to re-write songs with a university theme to it! Enjoy our rendition of "Baby, It's UOIT Outside".

Last-minute tips before applying to university

Posted by Sarah Worthington on December 10, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Recruitment season has come to an end for the fall season; what a ride it has been. I would hope that all of you have learned a lot from me through visits to your school, fairs, and/or this blog in itself. Surprisingly, the main thing I have taken from this experience is the amount I have learned from all of you high school students. I certainly felt like I was aging myself at the beginning of this journey, putting myself in the shoes of an eleventh or twelfth grader. The truth is I forgot how overwhelming this whole experience of picking a university can be. As the recruitment season neared its end I began to see a bit more panic and urgency in some of you high school students getting ready to submit your applications. I thought I would end on a high note with some tips that I think will help you all and help ease the nerves as you begin a wonderful new journey -- trust me, I know from experience!

The top three FAQs about UOIT

Posted by Sarah Worthington on November 24, 2014 at 12:30 PM

As a Recruitment Officer, I thought it would be fun to talk about some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that I get while on the road. After doing this for the past three months I have definitely seen a pattern with the questions students seem most eager to ask. I hope that answering these questions can shed some light on what we UOIT folk have come to know as common knowledge.
