Student for a day


Spend a day as a Gee-Gee*, virtually or in person! As a Student for a Day, you can:

  • Chat with an academic advisor
  • Sit in on a class
  • Speak with your future professors and classmates
  • Visit the campus, including the residences
  • Attend exclusive events

You can choose one activity, or you can choose them all! We will help you plan a day that fits into your schedule and suits your needs.

Get to know your program, ask questions and get excited about becoming a student in the Faculty of Arts!

*The University of Ottawa’s traditional colours have long been garnet and grey. Sports teams used to regularly be referred to by their team colours, and before uOttawa had an official nickname, the Ottawa sports media referred to them by the colours' initials, "GG." A Gee-Gee is also the lead horse in a race.
