Heavy rainfall failed to dampen the energy that resonated throughout the campus on October 23rd at Loyalist’s annual fall Open House. Over 1,800 high school students arrived by the busload from as far away as Oshawa in the west, Prescott in the east — north to Arnprior and south to Prince Edward County. Loyalist students and faculty greeted the guests, eager to share the opportunities the College has to offer. Campus tours included the residence village, rounding out the introduction to student life at Loyalist.
“I’ve learned a lot of things here today that are making me think more about my options,” said from Centennial Secondary School in Belleville. “I’ve heard really positive things about the health and fitness programs — and am also considering the Police Foundations program. Loyalist is noted for its great school spirit and friendly atmosphere. I know a lot of people who go here and it would be nice to stay in my hometown.”
Krista Lesage, from Trenton High School, is interested in the Child and Youth Worker program. “I really like the thought of being able to be near my friends and family. Everyone has been so friendly and it’s easy to find things here on campus — it’s a nice, warm environment.”
