TIMMINS, ON: Hundreds of students from across northeastern Ontario will head to Northern College’s Timmins Campus on Thursday, October 10th, 2013 to attend the college’s annual Open House.

Northern’s Open House will be held in conjunction with the College Information Program tour.

In addition to Northern College information booths and campus tours, representatives from 22 Ontario colleges will be on-site in the campus gymnasium from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

As part of the Open House, Northern College will be awarding six bursaries valued at $500 each to prospective students in attendance. Additional prizes will be available to secondary school students.

“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 the attendees and offering them a taste of the Northern experience.”
