SFU Surrey is gearing up for its Community Open House on Saturday, May 28, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. showcasing programs, research and student services – and unveiling more than 54,000 square feet of new space, including specialized science labs and classrooms.
The event will begin with the opening of the new space, dubbed Podium 2, and will include hundreds of interactive exhibits, displays, presentations and workshops, on everything from robots to cybercrime.
Information about academic programs, student services and admission will also be available for prospective students and parents.
In addition, the campus will host musical centre stage performances and activities for kids of all ages, including face painting, crafts and kids and youth zones featuring rock climbing, a bungee zone and inflatable play areas.
“This event is all about community, with something for people of all ages,” says Matthew Grant, director of enrolment and marketing. “It’s also a great opportunity for those who haven’t yet visited the campus to see what we have to offer.”
Opened in 2002 and nestled in Surrey’s Central City, SFU Surrey is an architecturally striking and award winning campus. The campus enjoys a thriving enrolment and continues to expand its wide base of programs in a variety of faculties, aimed at everyone from high school grads to life long learners.
SFU Surrey has become the first post-secondary choice of students in the Surrey school district, which is now SFU’s number-one feeder district.
