Brescia University College has initiated a new program to help high school students make the transition from high school to university.
The program, titled “Package of Profs,” compiles more than a dozen Brescia professors who volunteer to deliver catered presentations to local Grade 12 students about any aspect of university life.
“Package of Profs provides professors with an opportunity to talk to high school students about all the benefits of pursuing a university education — regardless of where the students choose to go,” June Matthews, professor in food and nutritional sciences at Brescia, said in a press release. “If they happen to be inspired by a professor from Brescia, well, that’s great. We have a unique, world-class campus – and are more than happy to talk about it to whomever we meet.”
The program boasts to be the only one of its kind within the London region, with about 30 high schools targeted since its inception in September.
