College student on campus

The Niagara Falls area in southern Ontario is a large landscape, with a fun mix of things to see and do – a host of exemplary universities and colleges is just one fun way to explore. 

When you do visit the southwestern areas of Ontario, you can check out the University of Western Ontario, the Niagara College of Applied Arts & Technology, or the Georgian College - South Georgia Bay Campus. These schools are found in excellent cities, each with their own blend of culture, history, and accommodation. 

Head for Owen Sound and explore the Georgian College - South Georgian Bay Campus. You can visit from nearby Kincardine or Walkteron, or stay in the charming city of Owen Sound. A campus tour of the Georgian College is an ideal afternoon destination for you and your soon-to-be high school graduate. At the Georgia College – South Georgia Bay Campus, you'll find the Great Lakes International Marine Training Centre, a 20,000 square foot facility and one of the most advanced in the province. 

As a whole, the Georgian College was established in 1967, is a public school, and features no religious affiliation. The South Georgian Bay campus is just one of seven in all of Ontario. In sports, they play as the Georgian Grizzlies across top sports like ice hockey and basketball.

You'll want to visit Welland on your next trip to southern Ontario. Here, you can visit the Niagara College of Applied Arts & Technology. Many of the other colleges and universities in Ontario share a lot of the same degree programs and focuses. At Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technology, the students dedicated industry training programs for the hospitality and tourism industry. It's a short, scenic drive from St. Catharines.

In Waterloo, you'll discover the main campus of the University of Waterloo. A short drive west of Kitchener, the University of Waterloo is another of Ontario's excellent public research institutions. Established in 1956, the University of Waterloo oversees the Earth Sciences Museum – treat the kids to one of the largest dinosaur exhibits in southern Ontario. 

Head for the city of London, the charming and vibrant city east of Sarnia, and just minutes southwest of Woodstock. Enjoy your stay in London and visit the University of Western Ontario. Established in 1878, UWO was known as the Western University of London Ontario until 1923.

At the campus, you'll find top buildings like the Richard Ivey School of Business, the Conron Hall, and the Paul Davenport Theatre. Also in London is Fanshawe College. Officially known as the Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology, this school is public, and competes in 14 varsity sports within the Ontario College Athletic Association.

At the Paul Davenport Theatre, formally the Talbot Theatre, you can catch live performances throughout the year from Western University Chamber Orchestra, and the Western University Symphony Orchestra. If you're looking for college sports instead of live orchestra, you can check out the Western Ontario Mustangs.

Watch as they don their classic purple and silver uniforms and play hockey, basketball, and football – just to name a few. If you visit in the fall, head for the TD Waterhouse Stadium where you can see the WO Mustangs play football.
