Universities, colleges host free info night

October 6, 2015 12:35 P.M.

Students and their parents can learn more about post-secondary education opportunities Thursday night at TRU House of Learning.

Fourteen B.C. universities and colleges will be in attendance at an information session that starts at 7 p.m. in the Barber Centre.

This is the second year that the Post Secondary Institute of B.C. (PSIBC) hosts the opportunity.

Parents can access information directly from institutions as they look ahead to making decisions on which college or university program their sons or daughters might attend.

While post-secondary representatives have visited high schools in Kamloops and around the province for many years, the school-hour schedule has traditionally made it difficult for parents to participate in the conversation. The evening includes a presentation focused on the many post-secondary options and paths for students in B.C., followed by a fair for attendees to interact directly with reps from all 14 institutions.

PSIBC is a collaborative, student-centred group acting as partners in supporting students and high school counsellors in B.C. high schools. The group strives to assist each student in their search to find both the institution and the program available in the province that best fits their personal and career objectives.
