College Royal 2023

College Royal 2023

This past weekend, March 18 and 19th, the University of Guelph hosted its annual College Royal event! 

Students from across campus, from all different departments, had an opportunity to showcase their programs with hands-on activities and displays. 

College Royal brings in more than 20,000 people over the course of one weekend and has been growing in popularity since it started in 1925. 

Each year, MG360 proudly participates in College Royal and shows a few of the many amazing ways groundwater influences our everyday lives through fun activities such as aquifer and rock core demonstrations. 

Although our MG360 team couldn’t be at College Royal this year, since a large group of us are over in Sweden (keep an eye on our blog to find out why), our friends at Creative Encounters in CEPS (College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, UoG) hosted a “Brain Break” booth at their Egg Drop Challenge, with activities geared towards groundwater. 

It was a great turnout with a full Atrium! If you were there and picked up one of our MG360 booklets, here are the answers:

Crosswords, word searches and colouring pages were provided by the Groundwater Foundation. 

We want to say a big thank you to our friends at Creative Encounters (below is the team who ran the Egg Drop and Groundwater Brain Break station) for generously helping us participate when we couldn’t be there in person, checkout their website here to see what they are all about!
