Burnaby Campus

What is Information Evening?

On Thursday, May 25 as we welcomed over 1300 new students and their guests to campus. The evening's activities will included a fair with all of our academic programs and student services, presentations from keynote speakers, and an opportunity to visit our campus bookstore to grab some new clothes and accessories to show your SFU spirit! 

For the last twenty-three years, Information Evening has laid a foundation for students who have been admitted to SFU, allowing them to learn more about their chosen programs and welcoming them to our SFU community.
