Info Days is the University of Manitoba’s annual open house for high school students. This year the event was held on February 19 and 20, with similar activities offered on each day. Students attended presentations and tours at scheduled times throughout the day, used university athletic facilities for free and met one-on-one with staff and students in the Information Village.
