A recent survey asked post-secondary students in Canada whether or not they would choose to study at their current institutions if given the chance to start over. The results varied among universities but raised questions about how much students actually know about their universities at the time of enrollment. “What is the Canadian student experience like” and “How does the culture on campus differ between institutions” are examples of questions that students might be better off learning first-hand as opposed to reading in an information package.
Canada Campus Visits was launched to help students, both international and domestic, answer questions like this for themselves. We believe that by setting foot on campus, touring the facilities and interacting with faculty, students will be better informed about their choice of college or university before enrolling. Empowered with the right information, more students will feel they made the right choice long after their studies have been completed.
