Students boast benefits of College at open house events
Okanagan College Media Release

Devon and Brandon Oct 2014Okanagan College is throwing open the doors of its Vernon campus and offering an information session and open house to prospective students on Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. 

Secondary students and their parents are invited to attend the event to find out about program offerings, fees, and admission requirements for Okanagan College.  

Instructors and current students will be on site to answer questions and help students learn about the realities of studying at the College, which includes benefiting from small class sizes and a low student-instructor ratio. 

One student speaking at the event is second-year Associate of Arts student Devon Weston. 

“I'm going to the information night to help people learn more about the benefits of the College from a student's perspective,” he says.

“I chose Okanagan College because it’s affordable, easily accessible on transit, and offers the same educational quality you’d find at other colleges and universities.” 

Another benefit attendees will learn about is the College’s small class sizes and low student-instructor ratio.

“I have been able to befriend professors and create valuable connections within the college that is helping me get real work experience,” says Brandon Moeller, a second-year associate of science student.

I’ve gotten a job at the College as a research assistant for the chair of the Biology department and as a gardener for the community garden on campus,” he says.

Participants will also be able to find out more about the application process, how to access scholarships and bursaries, applying for student loans, and transfer credits to B.C. universities. Everyone attending the event will also have the opportunity to enter a draw for a $500 tuition credit. 

In addition to the information night on Nov. 5, Okanagan College’s Vernon campus is also hosting an Adult Learning Seminar on Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. Mature students can learn about course and program options, short-term programs, and receive information on financial aid.
