Who’s running this place? Students Lead Cambrian College’s June Open House

Posted on Tuesday May 23, 2023

SUDBURY – There will be a temporary change of command at Cambrian College, Saturday, June 3.

On that day, Cambrian is hosting Open House-Student Takeover, and students are in charge of the whole event.

“We want new and potential students to get a first-hand look at Cambrian from a peer’s perspective,” says Alison Caruso, manager of student recruitment at Cambrian College.  “It’s going to be a fun day and what better way to show our guests that Cambrian is the place to be than with students meeting students.”

Open House-Student Takeover is being held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the college’s main campus in Sudbury.

More than 100 students will serve as Cambrian ambassadors for the day.

One of them is Chad Boudreau of Sudbury, a student in Cambrian’s new stand-alone Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program.

“Cambrian is such a great place to be a part of,” adds Boudreau. “Everyone is so supportive and I have made a lot of new friends here. I am excited to meet new students and to help show them everything Cambrian has to offer.”

Visitors will learn about Cambrian’s 90 programs and the new degree-level programs in nursing and business, including the first three-year degree program ever offered by an Ontario college.

Activities include:

  • Campus tours.
  • Prizes, including $10,000, a $1,000 scholarship, gift cards, a BBQ, and Muskoka chairs.
