Loyalist Days Offer Opportunities to Explore Post-Secondary Options

March 09, 2011

March Break provides the perfect opportunity to explore post-secondary options at Loyalist College. From March 15th to 18th, the College is hosting Loyalist Days. Prospective students, parents and friends are invited to tour the campus, gather program information, and meet faculty, staff and students.

The week has been planned to allow visitors to attend one or more program-specific information session/s in the morning. Following a lunch break, the Student Success Services team will be in the cafeteria to answer questions about the support services Loyalist provides for students. Visitors will be able to explore the campus with the help of a Passport Loyalist tour map. Stamps for the passport will be collected at each of nine designated areas and the completed passport can be redeemed for a BPA-free water bottle. New this year—visitors with smart devices will be able to enhance their tour by downloading data and collecting their passport stamps through Quick Response (QR) codes.

“It’s very important for people to take time to explore their post-secondary options,” said Gretta Barnwell, coordinator of Loyalist Days. “When they enroll in a program that fits well with their interests and strengths they are much more likely to be successful in their studies and find satisfaction in the careers they pursue. Loyalist Days provide an opportunity to visit the campus, learn more about the programs and ask questions. We look forward to introducing our guests to everything Loyalist has to offer.”
