This is the second year running that PSI-BC (a collaborative of BC post-secondary institution recruitment offices working together as partners to support students, parents and high school counsellors) will host the event the College’s Kelowna campus. It is designed to help students access information directly from institutions as they look ahead to making decisions on which college or university program they might attend.

“While post-secondary reps have visited high schools in the Okanagan for many years, the school-hour schedule has traditionally made it difficult for parents to participate in the conversation. The format of the evening will allow parents and students to interact directly with representatives from all 14 institutions in attendance,” says Josh KellerPSI-BC Administrative Co-ordinator.

The mandate of PSI-BC is to assist students and parents with finding both the institution and the program of study that best fits their personal strengths and career objectives. More information about PSI-BC is available at http://www.psibcinfo.com/.

Institutions expected to attend include Okanagan College, BCIT, Canadian Forces/RMC, Capilano University, College of the Rockies, Douglas College, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Quest University, Selkirk College, Simon Fraser University, Thompson Rivers University, Trinity Western University, University of British Columbia, and University of Victoria.
