Breakaway Event

Experience Life as a Providence Student

Experience Student Life

Providence's Breakaway event is a great opportunity for prospective students in Grades 10-12 to experience university life by staying on campus for a full day or overnight.  At Breakaway, you get the whole Providence experience as you get to meet the students and faculty, sit in on lectures, eat in the cafeteria and experience first-hand what it's like being a student at Providence. 

If you like it so much you want to apply, participants of Breakaway who apply to Providence will have their application fees waived!

Whether you are planning on attending Providence, or whether you are curious about what we have to offer, we would love to have you here!

WHAT TO BRING: Warm clothes, bedding (sleeping bag, pillow, etc.), toiletries, clothes.
