Try Before You Buy; The Importance of Campus Visits

By Olds College Modified on February 07, 2019

The best way to ensure you are selecting the best institution & program is to go visit!


Are you feeling overwhelmed by all of the post-secondary institution and program choices? Going to post-secondary is a big investment, so you want to ensure you do lots of research ahead of time so you know which institution & program is the best option for you. Doing research before making a decision will make you more likely to be successful in your courses and ensure that you don’t waste unnecessary time and money.

A campus visit is a great way to do some of that research, as it can help you decide if you like the institution, the facilities, the staff & faculty, and your program of interest.

At Olds College, our programming is hands-on, versatile and sets graduates up for success in industry. We offer many one-of-a-kind programs in the areas of Agricultural Management, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Brewmaster & Brewery Operations Management, Horticulture, Turfgrass Management, Equine Science, Farrier Science, Animal Science, Business Management, Land & Environment, Trades & Apprenticeship and so much more!

If any of those sound appealing to you, one great campus visit opportunity at Olds College is our upcoming Preview Days.
