TIMMINS, ON: Hundreds of students from across northeastern Ontario will head to Northern College’s Timmins Campus on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 to attend 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 prospective college students can meet with faculty, learn about programs and services, and experience a slice of college life. In addition to Northern College information booths and campus tours, representatives from 18 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.

“Our annual Open House is an amazing opportunity for local high-school students, as it gives them a chance to learn about what we have to offer, and have their questions answered,” says Fred Gibbons, President of Northern College. “We’re looking forward to welcoming all of the attendees, and giving them a taste of the unique Northern experience.”

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