Future students explore Durham College at Fall Open House

Durham College (DC) opened its doors to prospective students, families and friends at the Oshawa and Whitby campuses for the college’s annual Fall Open House on November 12.

More than 2,000 people explored DC’s state-of-the-art facilities and innovative learning spaces through guided tours, conversations with faculty experts from the college’s 145+ market-driven programs and meetings with support service representatives, such as financial aid, career services and co-op, to learn how DC is leading the way in post-secondary education.

At the Oshawa campus, visitors toured the creative spaces that make the DC student experience unique, including the Esports Gaming Arena, Mixed Reality Capture studio and the DC Spa, before attending information workshops, meeting President Don Lovisa and learning how to start their DC journey with Admissions representatives.

Whitby attendees participated in various workshops and toured the college’s innovative learning labs and shops, such as the Crane Simulation Lab and newly opened Ontario Power Generation Centre for Skilled Trades and Technology. They also had the opportunity to drop into one of two cooking demonstrations hosted by faculty in the W. Galen Weston Centre for Food – always a popular stop for those interested in DC’s culinary and hospitality programs!

At both campuses, attendees were invited to attend DC Alumni Guest Speaker panels, where DC grads offered unique perspectives on what they can expect as a student and the exciting opportunities available beyond college.
