On Saturday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., faculty, staff and students at Cambrian College will be welcoming hundreds of visitors to explore the campus and learn about all of the programs and services at the college’s Spring Open House. Organizers have packed the schedule full of interactive experiences to provide visitors with an unforgettable day.
“With so many activities, games, and prizes, this year’s Spring Open House will be like none other,” explained Jean-Guy Robichaud, Director of Student Success and Recruitment. “Everyone is invited to attend the event, and prospective students, applicants, families, and friends will find that there is really something for everyone. Whether our visitors come from across the province or from across town to meet us on April 13, we want them to feel at home and to find what they’re looking for.
“We’re tailoring the experience with sessions that will delve into specific program areas,” continued Robichaud. “Faculty and staff will be available all day to answer questions, but these interactive presentations will help students find the right program fit, and get them excited about coming to Cambrian this fall. We’re serving up a free lunch, offering tours, drawing for prizes, and answering any kinds of questions that potential students may have. To show off our fun side and challenge visitors to a little friendly competition, we’re also running a video game tournament with PS3s and Xbox 360s hooked up to vibrating game chairs and 18-inch screens in the Student Centre.”
Cambrian’s Spring Open House is intended for anyone who is serious, or even just curious about Cambrian’s programs, services, and facilities. It’s free, and it’s a great opportunity get a feel for the College, and for Sudbury. “We want future students and their families to experience the wonderful, caring atmosphere that Cambrian and Sudbury have to offer,” said President Sylvia Barnard. “It’s also a chance for students and parents learn more about what makes Cambrian unique; from our Graduate Tuition Rebate program, our Learning Account, the Glenn Crombie Centre for Student Support, and the Wabnode Centre for Aboriginal Services to our new Xstrata Nickel Sustainable Energy Centre, which is home to dozens of applied research projects.”
Visitors will have the chance to enter draws for prizes, including a mini iPad, a flight with Discovery Aviation Academy, and a $1,000 scholarship. For a schedule and other information, call 1-866-461-7145.
