Halifax, NS – Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) is welcoming prospective students and the local community to visit one of 13 campuses as part of its annual Open House on Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
"For many, Open House is their first chance to experience all that NSCC has to offer, and determine if our hands-on, industry-focused education is the right fit for them," says NSCC President Don Bureaux. "With interactive demonstrations, tours, program information and many other exciting activities, it's an event you don't want to miss."
At campuses and learning centres across the province, attendees can learn about the College's 120 plus programs, including new offerings launching in 2018 such as Cyber Security, Event Management and Geospatial Data Analytics. Attendees will also be able to speak with faculty, staff and industry partners—and apply for 2018-19 programs.
On Open House day, potential students can apply in person for free and be entered to win $1000 towards an NSCC education.
Bureaux adds, "This is the chance for prospective students to ask questions, get answers and get excited about the year to come—all while getting to know the people who will help them make the most of their NSCC experience."
NSCC Open House schedules and information are available at nscc.ca/OpenHouse.
