UNBC hosting info session for Tri-City high-school students

Prince George’s School is having a media night with SD43 for high school students who are considering heading north next year.

Winter break is approaching for high school students across the Tri-Cities.

While some are looking forward to a two-week vacation, some may be looking beyond the holidays for what the future holds after graduation.

There are many post-secondary institutions in the Lower Mainland to consider, but there is one in Prince George designed to explain why it is an option for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The University of Northern BC (UNBC) is scheduled to host a virtual information session this week in conjunction with School District 43 (SD43).

Perched on a university hilltop overlooking the entire city and its surrounding environment, UNBC has been ranked as one of the best small universities in all of Canada every year for the past seven years.

The post-secondary institution is best known for its forest and biological studies with research opportunities aplenty, but it also offers a range of fields such as First Nations studies, political science, women’s studies, and business.

According to UNBC, more than 4,200 students are enrolled in the academic programs for the 2020-21 academic year.

It’s also home to the Timberwolves basketball and football programs—both compete in U Sports, the nation’s highest level college athletics level.

A one-hour session for SD43 students is scheduled for tomorrow (December 8) starting at 5 PM

Interested students and/or families in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra are encouraged to register in advance for a Zoom link.

On our radar is something we do when we look forward to an event or think the audience should be aware of it. Think you have something for that? Contact us at newsroom@tricitynews.com.
