On March 24, 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 annual Spring Open House.
The event gave more than 3,000 students and guests the opportunity to explore 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.
The college also leveraged social media to provide those who couldn’t make it in person with a window into on-campus activities. A VIP information session about DC’s new Honours Bachelor of Health Care Technology Management program was livestreamed (a recording is still available) as were campus and residence tours.
DC will hold its Fall Open House on Saturday, November 10.
