Two female students looking at a tablet; Student for a Day


Do you want to know what it’s like to be a college student? Visit our Barrie Campus between Oct. 18 and Nov. 30 to take part in Student for a Day.

A current Georgian student will show you around. Choose from one of three general education courses and sit in on the class. Afterwards, you and your student guide can chat one-on-one over coffee to answer any questions you have about the application process, student life and more. You can take a tour of the campus as well. The whole visit will take between one and two-and-a-half hours, depending on your goals.

Choose a class

These classes are just a small sample of the relevant, career-focused, hands-on courses we offer at Georgian. This fall, we can offer you the following classes to sit in on. Each class will give you a glimpse into a college classroom, the style of learning, pace of the course, and the friendly interaction with professors and fellow students.

  • Thursdays starting at 5:45 p.m. – Abnormal Psychology
  • Fridays starting at 2:45 p.m. – Social Psychology
