TIMMINS, ON: Hundreds of students from across northeastern Ontario will head to Northern College’s Porcupine Campus on Wednesday, October 10th for the college’s annual Open House.

Northern’s Open House will be held in conjunction with the College Information Program tour. The Open House provides an environment where high school students can meet faculty, learn about programs and services, and experience a slice of college life. In addition to Northern College information booths and student-led campus tours, representatives from 20 Ontario colleges will be on-site at the campus gymnasium from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

As part of the Open House celebrations, Northern College will be awarding six bursaries valued at $500 each and other prizes to secondary school attendees.

“We’ve had an incredible response from high schools throughout northern Ontario,” says Rosa Lavoie, Manager of Admissions, Student Recruitment and International Office. “We are looking forward to meeting all attendees and offering them a taste of the Northern College experience.”

This event offers senior high school students, guidance counsellors and adult learners from community learning centres and agencies the opportunity to discuss many aspects of post-secondary education with representatives from Ontario colleges.

The public is invited to visit the program displays, college information booths and participate in a tour.

The College Information Program is an annual province-wide tour providing prospective post-secondary students with direct access to representatives from Ontario’s colleges.
