Friendly Takeover! Cambrian College’s June Open House will be led by Students.

Posted on Friday May 28, 2021

SUDBURY – Cambrian College is exploring new territory to officially welcome the
summer season next month.

Cambrian’s second annual June Virtual Open House is being led by students.

The Virtual Open House – Student Takeover Edition takes place Saturday, June 19
from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. It will be broadcast via the college’s webpage,
www.cambriancollege.ca/virtual-open-house .

Cambrian students will be leading the academic program booths. They will also
assist the college’s recruitment department in the other Virtual Open House
features, such as the student services booth, live tours and more.

“Who better to talk about the Cambrian College experience than the people that
the experience has been created for, our students, “ says Renee Scott, Cambrian’s
Director of Student Success and Recruitment. “Our students are great ambassadors
and will be taking over major components of our Open House, talking directly to
potential students and other guests about their experiences at Cambrian.”

One of the students taking over the Virtual June Open House is Lauren
Hourtovenko, originally from Sudbury but now living in Waterloo, Ontario. She just
completed her first year in Cambrian’s Media Communications program.

“Cambrian College is not just a post-secondary school, it’s a second home and I
think people are going to see that during our June Open House,” explains
Hourtovenko. “I cannot wait to share my experience with new and prospective
students about what it is like, not only to enroll at Cambrian College, but to join the
Cambrian community.”

In addition to the information sessions and live tours, a number of prizes will be up
for grabs:

  • $500 Amazon gift card early bird prize: attendees who pre-register for the
    event on or before 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, June 14, will be eligible to
    have the chance to win.
  • 4 x $500 Amazon gift cards – participants must fill out the prize form during
    Virtual Open House- Student Takeover Edition for a chance to win!
  • 1 x HP Envy laptop - participants at Virtual Open House fill out the prize
    form for a chance to win!

“Our online open houses are getting fantastic feedback and uptake has been
tremendous,” adds Renee Scott, Cambrian’s Director of Student Success and
Recruitment. “We’ve evolved from one open house and two intakes a year, to three
open houses and six intakes to meet the demands of today’s students who want
more flexibility when it comes to their college experience.”
