“We’re excited to open our doors on campus and virtually to prospective and future Thunderwolves this March Break,” said Lynn Hurrell, Director, Undergraduate Recruitment.  

“Join a campus tour, meet with faculty members and current students, and participate in in-person learning and exploration opportunities in our classrooms and labs. If you want to join virtually, we have a number of on-line learning experiences available.”

You will also have the opportunity to hear from Lakehead University staff about financial supports and bursaries, residence, co-op experiences, and more.

Future Forward to Lakehead will offer a long awaited on-campus experience for applicants and prospective students. Each day will feature a specific faculty, which will include immersive and interactive experiences.
