Earth Science Open House

A Partnership with Orix Geoscience Inc. 

The Harquail School of Earth Sciences and Orix Geoscience Inc. invite students and their guardians who are currently exploring undergraduate programs, to join us for an evening discovering applications of earth sciences in the industry. Uncover what a career as a geologist could look like by exploring various hands-on activities. Speak with Laurentian Alumni and Earth Sciences professors to learn more about our BSc programs. View a list of dates and activities offered at the open house below. 


Choosing a university and program to get you started down the path to your career is an important and sometimes difficult decision. We therefore want to make this decision as easy as possible for you. 

Our open houses are offered both on the Laurentian Campus in Sudbury, as well as in Toronto at the Orix Geoscience head office to accomodate students who live in Southern Ontario! Open houses are offered in the Fall and the Spring.
