Experience a class

Are you thinking about university?  Come experience a class and see what it's all about!

For one week in March, there are interesting classes available, 3 presentations (one from Liaison, one from the Center of Academic Excellence, and one from the Indigenous Learning Strategist), as well as campus tours for you to attend.

Lunch will be provided to students who attend a minimum of one class, as well as attend a campus tour or a presentation by Liaison, the Center for Academic Excellence, or the Indigenous Learning Strategist.

We believe that this opportunity will not only spark your interest and aid in guiding your future, but also help alleviate some of the fears that may be associated with moving on to post-secondary education.

Furthermore, this activity is considered to be a “reach a head experience” for high school students who are pursuing a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM). A certificate of completion will be given to SHSM students upon request.

I was getting ready to choose my program and courses for University, and I was very interested in journalism and philosophy, but I did not know if the courses were for me, so I observed them. In the journalism class, the whole class was welcoming and they even included me in their discussions. Philosophy was a bigger class so it gave me the opportunity to observe a less interactive course. During the week I also had the chance to meet another student with whom I share interests. The entire experience was very well organized and flexible.

I was picking my classes for 11th grade and my orientation teacher saw that Journalism was one of the subjects that I was looking up and so she told me that during the March Break the University of Sudbury was letting people sign up to observe classes. I signed up that night. I really enjoyed this experience! It really showed me what to expect and how the classes are.

What made me register for the experience a class event was to get some sense on what University is like. The experience at this school was awesome! I loved the part where I got to sit with the students and see university through their eyes.

I love having any opportunity to learn or experience new things, especially in the academic context. I enjoy attending events and activities that promote a pursuit of further knowledge, and gaining new insights and new interests. The specific classes that were available to experience fell in line with a strong interest of mine, philosophy.

I have a strong interest in Philosophy and this opportunity was too good to pass up. The experience was very informative. I loved how interactive it was.
