Mon, Feb 4, 2019

Are you curious about what’s behind the doors at Kwantlen Polytechnic University? On Saturday, February 9, KPU Surrey opens its doors to the public and future students to discover what the university has to offer. 

“This is our chance to connect with the community and showcase everything KPU has to offer: from unique programs and innovative approaches to hands-on education, to the learning opportunities outside of the classroom,” says Dr. Alan Davis, vice-chancellor and president of KPU. 

Whether you’re interested in science, arts, horticulture, trades or design there’s something for everyone.

Attendees will have the chance to create their own lampshade using a state-of-the-art laser cutter at the Wilson School of Design station. Are you an English or math whiz? Win prizes for finding errors in English or math problems. 

There will be a virtual welder, a simulation machine that gives you a taste of it’s like to use the real machine. There is also an opportunity to take an appliance apart then put it back together. At the health stations, you can have your blood pressure checked by a student nurse.

Learn about the various faculties and programs available at KPU and discover what the campus has to offer, including the newly renovated Spruce Building.

The Winter Farmers Market is also taking place on February 9 on campus with fresh produce and local products as well as Food Trucks.

Guests are encouraged to register for the Open House as you will be entered into a draw to win a pair of Canucks tickets. Guests who participate in the scavenger hunt will be entered to win one of three $500 tuition waivers.
