9 a.m. — Check-in

Meet us at Open House Headquarters

9:30 a.m. — Kickoff

Open House is meant to be informative, but also fun. What better way to start the day than music, TRU merch, and free coffee and treats.

Your chance to meet TRU faculty and staff, ask your questions, and learn about different programs and services.

Unique information sessions run throughout the day across campus. Curious about opportunities and student services available to TRU students? Hoping to start your course planning early with an academic advisor? There’s an information session (or several!) for everyone.

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. — Campus Tours

Explore our beautiful campus on a guided tour led by a current TRU student.

2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. — Student Panel

Hear from our current students as they answer your questions about life at TRU. Ensure you’ve registered for your opportunity to submit your questions.
