The University of New Brunswick put its best foot forward Saturday as part of an open house for prospective students and their families.

Visitors were able to participate in campus tours, faculty meet-and-greets, attend information sessions about scholarship opportunities and clubs, societies and extracurricular activities, and speak with current students about their experiences.

Students roamed the halls of the Student Union Building, parents trailing slightly behind carrying arm-loads of information packages.

Susan Mesheau, executive director of UFirst - the university's integrated recruitment and retention program, said the open house was designed to give prospective students a positive first experience with the institution.

"We want folks to come on campus to explore the different programs we have, meet the faculty, take a campus tour - to get a feel for what we have to offer here," she said.

"It gives them an opportunity to get a sense as to what the experience will be like, should they decide to come to UNB."
