Making the Most of College Day

Getting ready to attend College Day? The key to success is to prepare well. See our tips below for before, during and after the event.



  • Practice your introduction and prepare essential questions using our tips for choosing a university. Be sure to mention who you are, when you plan to enrol, and what majors you are interested in. Take advantage of the unique time that you as a student have to make connections with admissions and university staff.
  • Pack light! All you need is a notebook. Make use of your time spent in the queue by reviewing your notes and practising your introduction. Note that bag searches will be in effect and large bags will not be permitted in the venue.


  • Follow up after the fair with an email to the admissions representatives. College Day is a great opportunity to build relationships with admissions officers, so recap what you discussed and thank them for the information.
  • Organise your materials, and start to make some decisions. Do your best to rule out universities that are not a good fit and begin to compile the information on universities you are excited about!
