Prospective students will find out how Lakeland College can put them in the lead during Open House 2015
The annual event will be held over two days – Friday, Oct 23 and Saturday, Oct 24 – at the Vermilion and Lloydminster campuses. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. visitors will have the opportunity to learn about Lakeland’s 50-plus programs. They’ll be able to talk to current students and faculty and discover what makes Lakeland different.

“Our Open House event is the best way to experience all that Lakeland has to offer,” says SarahJayne Biglieni, enrolment specialist. “Every year we welcome hundreds of future students to campus during Open House and help them discover more about our college. They learn about our different learning pathways, program details including career opportunities and how they can take the first step towards a great future with Lakeland.”

Open House visitors will be able to tour the new Energy Centre in Lloydminster, see the Student Managed Farm – Powered by New Holland in Vermilion, as well as tour the rest of each campus and visit residence. Prospective students will be able to experiment in labs, sit in on a class, learn about trades and more.

Before attending Open House 2015, prospective students are encouraged to create their ApplyAlberta profile at applyalberta.ca. This will make applying online during Open House quicker. And students will want to wait, because for those who apply to a program online or in person during Open House, the $90 application fee will be waived.

Everyone who registers will be in a draw to win an iPad Air, and if they take a guided tour, they could win a $1,000 tuition credit.

A Career Fair will be held in conjunction with Open House 2015 at the Vermilion campus. Rustlers volleyball teams will be in action on Friday evening and basketball on Saturday at the Lloydminster campus.
