More than 1,500 visitors explored DC digitally at Fall Virtual Open House

November 13 marked Durham College’s (DC) fourth Virtual Open House event in two years, as DC’s dedicated employees, faculty and students logged on to welcome more than 1,500 prospective students and their families as they explored DC online. Checking in from across the globe, visitors from 50 countries benefited from the immersive, virtual format as they got an inside look at DC and gained access to important information that will help them prepare for their college experience.

Through informative live program information and student support services sessions, visitors had the opportunity to ask questions about DC’s more than 140 market-driven programs and learned about financing their education, living on campus, career outcomes and everything in between.

Guided virtual tours of campus spaces, including learning environments, residence, applied research centres and wellness facilities, allowed visitors to envision themselves on our campuses. Attendees also had the chance to enter to win a $5,000 tuition credit, fall 2022 semester parking passes, Flex Dollar meal cards and DC swag.

Since last year, DC has welcomed more than 12,000 visitors to virtual student recruitment events and information sessions, providing the opportunity to create the meaningful connections between visitors and DC community members that are a hallmark of the college’s pre-pandemic in-person events.
