On November 3rd the College welcomed over 1,800 high school students — showcasing the career-focused program choices and campus facilities. Visitors had the opportunity to explore the campus, including the residence village, and take part in the interactive exhibits.

Two friends from Bayside Secondary School, Kayla Poirier and Sara Beaudrie, attended the Open House together.
“I’ve been to the campus once before but today was the best,” said Sara Beaudrie. “We’ve been able to find out so much about so many different programs by talking to the faculty and students. There are a lot of programs here that I didn’t know about. Everyone is so outgoing and I really like that. I’m going to take the Loyalist Social Service Worker program and I found it really helpful talking to SSW teachers.”
Kayla Poirier echoed Sara’s thoughts and added, “My goal is to work in a penitentiary as a guard so I want to take the Community and Justice Services Worker program. I have two friends who have taken the program here and they really liked it. Being able to live at home and go to college will save me a lot of money — which I think is great.”
Lucas Shillington from Moira Secondary School plans to start the Police Foundations program in January.
Lucas Shillington from Moira Secondary School was also a guest at the Open House. “There are many reasons why I plan to enroll in the Police Foundations program in January but something that I really like is the fact that the students who graduate from this program are getting jobs. I’ve also heard that fitness is a big part of this program and that’s important to me. I’ve played running back for the Moira Trojans throughout high school so to be able to stay in shape as part of my studies really appeals to me. I’m not the only one in my family planning to start college in January. My mom is going to take the Personal Support Worker program so with some car pooling and being able to live at home, college will be much more affordable.”
