Open house on Nov. 4 offers prospective students sneak peak at College life
Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College is throwing open the doors of its Penticton campus and offering an information session and open house to prospective students on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at 5 p.m. 

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

“The best way to really understand what’s available at the College is to talk to students who come here,” says South Okanagan’s Regional Dean Donna Lomas. “Come and meet the instructors and learn first-hand all the benefits the College has to offer.”

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

“Coming to the information night, meeting with instructors and speaking with students definitely helped me feel more comfortable about starting post-secondary,” says Robert Lalonde, a first-year Associate of Science student who attended last year’s event at the Penticton campus.

In addition, everyone attending will have the opportunity to enter a draw for a $500 tuition credit.

At 7 p.m., College Prep 101 is taking place in the Lecture Theatre. This session will go into detail about the application process, accessing scholarship and bursaries, applying for student loans, and transferring credits to B.C. universities.

Events get underway at 5 p.m. in the Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence.
