If you’re struggling to decide what to study and where to go to college, many students over the years have told us that Open House has been their deciding factor. Attending Open House was the make-it or break-it experience that ultimately led them to their decision. Many schools have events going on in the fall, including Fanshawe on October 28. Take time to review the schools you are interested in and plan out your visits to ensure you can fit in the visits that are most important to you.
