Selkirk College opens doors to community and future students
Selkirk College is opening the door of possibility to prospective students.
On November 6th, Selkirk is hosting an Open House at the Castlegar Campus between 4:00 pm and 6:30 pm. Secondary students from across the West Kootenay and Boundary are invited to come to the campus to explore the more than 60 programs offered. Parents, high school teachers, career counsellors and all members of the public are also encouraged to check out what Selkirk has available.
“There is no better way to show our future students what a great learning environment we have to offer than to have them stop by,” says Amy Kinakin, Educational Recruitment Specialist for Selkirk College. “This is a great opportunity for area high school students to get a jump on what pathways they can follow right in their own backyard.”
Selkirk College will have representatives from all programs on hand to provide information and answer any questions. Programs from all nine campuses throughout the West Kootenay and Boundary will be featured.
Also attending the Open House will be admissions officers, financial aid, Aboriginal Services, counsellors and current Selkirk students who will act as tour guides. There will be interactive and informative displays set up in the Castlegar Campus “pit” for prospective students to browse. Faculty will be in attendance to chat about some of the amazing educational opportunities that exist.
“This is one of several important events we host over the course of the year that allows young people the opportunity to get a taste of college life,” says Kinakin. “Having faculty in attendance provides those thinking about Selkirk College a chance to meet the amazing educators we have on campus.”
There will important information provided about scholarships and financial aid which are available to students who study at Selkirk College. Understanding the daunting task ahead for those nearing the end of high school, there will also be help in filling out the college application. Those who fill out their application that night will have the $35 registration fee waived.
