Students will be sent a Teams invitation to join this event. Students in other grades are also welcome.  

Our alumni guests have pursued studies and/or are currently working in the Social Science field. Each of our panelists will share their unique university and program experiences, plus recent career opportunities. Our confirmed guests at this time are:

Grade 12 students are reminded that requests for supporting documents need time for processing and should be directed to Ms. Johnston, including any remaining references required for late applications.

In February, Grade 11 students will begin initial university planning conversations as part of their Course Selection Meetings. Grade 11 students will be invited to individual meetings at that time.
