At OCAD University, you’ll work hard because you’ll want to. Because you will be inspired. Because you can’t imagine being anywhere else.

OCAD U alumni, medal winners, faculty and staff want students to know more about what makes this university unique and what it takes to study here. This year’s OCAD U booth at the Ontario Universities Fair (OUF), held September 27 to September 29 at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre, was bigger and more active than ever.

OUF, North America’s largest education fair, brings together representatives from all 21 Ontario universities. Last year it was attended by more than 115,000 students, parents and educators from across the province and beyond. This year there were 121,000 attendees, and Saturday was the second largest attendance days in the history of the event, with more than 52,000 people going through.

“It’s an opportunity for students to learn more about all of the universities in Ontario at one place and at one time. There’s no other event like it,” says Jan Sage, OCAD U’s Director, Admissions & Recruitment. “Our focus is to answer questions and let students know OCAD U is an art and design university with the same academic rigour as other universities. It’s an option for students who want to study art and design at a university level.”

Sage says the fair is primarily for highschool students investigating their options for post-secondary education. It’s an important place to learn about universities they may wish to attend and what the admission requirements are. “When choosing courses, it’s really important to have an idea of where you want to end up,” Sage says. “For university you need a combination of U or M designated classes.”
