Experience what is possible at KPU Richmond Open House

Wed, Oct 16, 2019

Students are being invited to an open house at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Richmond campus to explore what is possible through post-secondary education.

Coinciding with a province-wide professional development day in schools, the open house gives students and their families a chance to learn about KPU’s programs, admission requirements and application process.

“It’s always exciting to showcase all that KPU has to offer to students who are eager to learn more about our university,” says Dr. Alan Davis, president and vice-chancellor at KPU. “Coming to campus and connecting with faculty members, staff, past and current students is a fantastic way for individuals to truly see and experience what is possible.”

Other highlights of the open house include campus tours, learning about opportunities to study abroad, a free acupuncture consultation from students in KPU’s Traditional Chinese Medicine program, and a variety of fun games.

KPU Richmond is also home to the Wilson School of Design, which is holding the following information sessions:
