DC welcomes future students at Winter Open House

On January 20, Durham College (DC) opened its doors to prospective students and their families at the Oshawa and Whitby campuses and Pickering Learning Site for the college’s Winter Open House.

The event gave 1,400 visitors the opportunity to explore the DC’s extensive facilities, take guided tours, check out support services, including Financial Aid and Awards and the Access and Support Centre, and learn more about the college’s more than 140 full-time programs and hundreds of continuing education offerings.

DC president Don Lovisa, current students, alumni, faculty and staff were all on hand to connect with community members and share their first-hand knowledge and experience related to all things DC.

Winter Open House also gave curious students the opportunity to learn more about the seven new programs DC that will launch in September 2018, including its first degree program, the Honours Bachelor of Health Care Technology Management.

Other new programs coming to DC include:
