Campus Visit Days
Campus Visit Days
The best way to participate in the Booth Experience is to visit us. Whether it's a personal visit or a group tour aimed at a specific area of interest, we can arrange for you to talk to administrators, professors and students. You can sit in on a class, stop by the Bistro and hang out in our common areas.
We're always available to set up a tour or answer any questions you might have. Just give us a call or send an email.

HARD WIRED TO BULLY: The Biology and Culture of Prejudice
Booth UC's 6th Annual Youth Forum
December 2, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
High school students are invited to take part in this year's interactive youth forum where they will learn about the psychology of prejudice that underlies bullying. Because prejudice is such a regular feature of human psychology, it could be that it is hard wired into us as something like an instinct. Or, if not born into us, perhaps it is a result of our social environment. This forum will explore both of these, while expanding students' thinking about bullying as they engage in interactive group activities, sit in on lectures and more! Students will also have the opportunity to meet with faculty and Admissions staff, as well as dine in our Bistro and take a tour of campus. Snacks and lunch will be provided.
For more information and to register, please contact: Admissions@BoothUC.ca.
