welcome message from your 2017 Co-Chairs

Challenging all members of the class of 2017!

We're the co-chairs of the 2017 Graduating Class Challenge and we're inviting you to help us build this fantastic new tradition for the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). We're even offering a great incentive for your participation – a chance to win $1,000!

The university wants to celebrate your accomplishments and help you get started on the path to a new career.  The 2017 Graduating Class Challenge is a series of events held Monday, January 23 through Friday, January 27 to celebrate graduating students and to provide you with tips and tools to help you launch your new career and learn about the opportunities, services and benefits available to alumni.

Enter a draw for a chance to win $1,000

So here's the challenge part: We want everyone in the class of 2017 to complete a brief opinion survey. Your feedback will help to keep graduates connected to one another and to the university, as well as engaged with the exciting programs and events the Alumni office and the Alumni Association are developing for you.

All you have to do is answer four quick questions about how the university can help you effectively transition into your career – and you'll be entered into a draw to win $1,000 toward tuition or a student loan!

The faculty with the most completed surveys will also win $1,000 to support a student in 2017-2018!

Here's how you can complete the survey:

  • Online, starting Monday, January 16.
  • At one of the promotional tables staffed by faculty representatives Tuesday, January 17 through Thursday, January 19.
  • During events held Monday, January 23 to Friday, January 27.
