Fall Campus Day

Fall Campus Day 2023

Yashvit and Selina were actively involved with Fall Campus Day this year. While Yashvit served as a Student Ambassador working closely with University College, Selina volunteered to be a Tour Guide for the day, showing prospective students and their parents around on campus. Here's a little about their experiences:

Yashvit: "I feel thrilled to have had the incredible opportunity to serve as a Student Ambassador during Fall Campus Day at the University of Toronto on November 18th, 2023! As a representative of University College, it was an honour to share my unique student experiences and provide insights to prospective students and their parents.

Engaging with the vibrant community at University College has been an enriching journey, and I am grateful for the chance to connect with bright minds and curious hearts. As a Student Ambassador, I had the privilege of answering a number of questions, helping future students navigate their academic journey, and showcasing the exceptional opportunities that University College has to offer. To all the prospective students and parents I had the pleasure of connecting with, I'm excited about the possibility of seeing you on campus soon!"

Selina: "I've always wanted to be a Tour Guide, which is why I signed up to volunteer for Fall Campus Day! U of T Tour Guides work throughout the whole year, which unfortunately couldn't work with my already-packed schedule. Luckily, participating in Fall Campus Day was a great one-time experience that introduced me to the work that the Tour Guides do.

By far the best part of my day was at the end. The last tour bus was scheduled to leave by 3:00pm. It was 2:55 and the last bus was fully packed and had just departed, but there was still a crowd of 70+ people who had been waiting in line to catch the bus. The last tour bus arrived at 2:57, and I asked my supervisor if it would be possible to fit all these people in one last bus. It wasn't 3:00pm yet, and I wanted to see if there was any way that the last group of people could get on a tour. After a few phone calls back and forth, we were able to make it happen! We were able to successfully get everyone on a tour bus before the day ended. It was stressful, but it was also super satisfying to see everything come together in the end.

All in all, I'm so glad I could help out during Fall Campus Day! If you're interested in being a Tour Guide or working with the Department of Recruitment, I recommend participating in Fall Campus Day to get a taste of the work they do."
