What: Discovery Day 2022

When: Tuesday, March 29, 2022

Where: Online

It’s Vancouver Island University’s (VIU’s) largest event for high school students, and this year it’s taking place virtually, so students and parents can log in from anywhere.

Discovery Day 2022 takes place on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, from 9 am to 2 pm on a virtual event platform called Pheedloop. The event will be hosted by current students with support from university staff in key areas such as financial aid, student housing, the VIU Students’ Union and much more. Another highlight is a feature that allows students to collect points for every session they attend and activity they engage in, and then trade them for prizes and swag at the end of the day, just like in a video game.

“Discovery Day is really focused on the student experience,” says Rolanda Murray, a VIU Recruitment Officer. “It will be student-led, with lots of opportunities for them to explore our programs and services, check out live virtual tours, chat with our students and earn prizes. Come find out what makes VIU a unique place to study from our students.”

New this year is a parent session from 5 - 7 pm where parents can ask questions and hear more about key supports like financial aid and student services.

Discovery Day is open to all students in Grades 10, 11 and 12. To learn more, view the schedule and register, visit the Discovery Day homepage.
