Future students get a taste of university at TRU Open House events

  Posted on: October 14, 2021

KAMLOOPS–Thompson Rivers University (TRU) welcomes prospective students at a series of on-campus and online information events this fall.

The Open House series begins Saturday, Oct. 23, with on-campus and program-specific tours offered between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. All tours take an hour, and are limited in size due to COVID-19 protocols.

Potential students can take a general campus tour or get more detailed looks at programs in nursing, trades and technology, science or the Architectural and Engineering Technology (ARET) program.

Those who can’t attend the on-campus event can stop by our drive-thru to get a TRU starter kit containing information and swag.

The Open House event kicks off a series of virtual information sessions slated for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings between Tuesday, Oct. 26 and Thursday, Dec. 9. The series involves faculty, students and staff giving webinars full of information about programs, opportunities and student life.

Registration is required for Open House tours, the drive-thru and virtual information sessions. Anyone interested can go to to register or for more information.
