More than 2,000 prospective students and their families filled the halls and classrooms of Durham College campuses in Oshawa and Whitby Saturday for the school’s Spring Open House.

The visitors got a chance to meet faculty, explore labs and learning spaces, and learn about the 145+ career-driven programs offered by the college.

Guided tours showcased facilities at both locations, such as the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre and the Ontario Power Generation Centre for Skilled Trades and Technology. In Oshawa, a bus tour gave guests a whole new way to tour the campus and visit destinations like the Centre for Collaborative Education and the Campus Ice Centre.

Information sessions at both campuses walked prospective students through the application process and the Oshawa tour also had demonstrations from the cosmetics, engineering and firefighting programs.

Durham College President Don Lovisa and Rebecca Milburn, executive dean and principal of the Whitby campus, as well as alumni, faculty, current students and employees were on hand to talk to the visitors as well.

The school will welcome prospective students once again for Program Information Nights on Tuesday, May 9 (Oshawa) and Thursday, May 11 (Whitby).
