March 29, 2017
SARNIA, March 29, 2017 – The countdown is on to Lambton College’s Spring Open House and we’ve got a great list of reasons why you won’t want to miss one of our biggest events of the year.
In addition to program displays, information sessions, photo booth fun and some fantastic prizes, here are 10 reasons why Lambton College is the place to be this coming Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Reason #10: Talk to faculty and meet students
Spring Open House is your backstage pass to a personal meet and greet with Lambton College faculty. You’ll have the opportunity to ask program-specific questions, learn more about individual courses and even discuss career outcomes. Student ambassadors will also be available from each program to give you the inside scoop on what it’s really like to be a Lambton College student.
Reason #9: Fun at the Fire School
Our Fire & Public Safety Centre of Excellence is the largest, live-fueled training centre in Canada and we’re going to have ongoing shuttles available throughout the day to get you there. In addition to touring this state-of-the-art facility, guests can also take a closer look at the on-site industrial props utilized by students for educational and training purposes.
Reason #8: Pounce and pizza and #LCPride
We know, that’s actually three reasons. But the chance to meet our mascot Pounce and enjoy free pizza while learning about all the great opportunities available at Lambton College is cause to celebrate. Everyone who comes to Open House, leaves feeling like they’re part of the Pride.
Reason #7: We’re growing by two new buildings – and more!
Our campus is under construction and we’re excited to share updates and virtual tours of our two new world-class facilities, the NOVA Chemicals Health & Research Centre and the Athletics & Fitness Complex. Guests will also get a glance at the renderings of our Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technology, which is also undergoing a major renovation to further provide students with access to a state-of-the-practice learning environment.
Reason #6. Find out more about Financial Aid
There are many options available to help students fund their studies and we’re going to tell you all about them. Representatives from Financial Aid will be hosting two very important information sessions that will give incoming students the opportunity to ask questions about the Ontario Government’s Free Tuition initiative. Sessions will be offered at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in Room B207.
Reason #5: We’re celebrating our 50th Anniversary
It’s our birthday and we’re celebrating all year long! Lambton College was established in 1966 by the Province of Ontario with four programs and 54 students at the original Blue Water Campus – and we haven’t stopped growing since. Learn about our rich history and how we’ve built a reputation as a post-secondary leader in education, training and research.
Reason #4: Explore the campus
Learn about the various services available to Lambton College students while touring classrooms, labs and other select stops such as the Campus Shop, the cafeteria, the Library Resource Centre, The Cube, and myCareer Centre. You can also become familiar with all the amenities available to students in our 140 room residence, such as foosball and pool tables, a snack bar and media room.
Reason #3: We’ve got new programs (and old favourites, too!)
We’re adding four new diploma programs to our full-time roster for 2017 and we’re going to tell you all about them at Open House. Learn more about our brand new Electrical Power Distribution & Control Technician, Sports & Recreation Administration, and Workplace Safety & Prevention programs including admission requirements and employment prospects.
Reason #2: Confirm your spot – on the spot!
We’re going to sweeten the pot for everyone who confirms their spot at Open House. Our Enrolment Advisors will be on hand to help any incoming students navigate the confirmation process. Even better? Everyone who confirms their acceptance on the spot can pop a balloon and is guaranteed to win a prize ranging from Lambton College gear to an iPad Mini.
Reason #1: The chance to win your tuition
