College Day helps local high school students picture their future and explore programs


October 21, 2015

SARNIA, October 21, 2015 – Lambton College is giving local high school students a chance to picture what their future careers might look like.

On Monday, October 26, Lambton College will be participating in Picture Your Future, an event run by Ontario’s colleges that uses green-screen technology to take student photos in an array of career settings. The Picture Your Future event takes place during Lambton College’s annual College Day, which will run from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the main gym.

Picture Your Future is a fun and interactive way for students to see themselves in such career settings as firefighting, broadcasting, game development, business, nursing, aviation and more. The event promotes the numerous and varied career opportunities available to young people through a college education.

“With almost 89 per cent of Lambton College students finding work within six months of graduation, college education offers a clear path to success,” says Judith Morris, President & CEO, Lambton College. “We’re hoping our College Day activities will inspire students to think creatively about their future careers and education.”

Guests of this event will also have the opportunity to explore all the great programs Lambton College has to offer while interacting with representatives from other Ontario colleges.

This free event will also give students the chance to meet with faculty and staff, learn about various campus services, clubs and athletics, discuss admission requirements, and learn more about financial aid.

Additionally, representatives from over 20 colleges from across Ontario will also be on hand to discuss program options at their respective institutions. The afternoon will also feature a variety of interactive activities including a social media lounge, video games, photo booths, in-chair massages, and mocktails. Some great prizes are also up for grabs including a draw for $500 and the chance to enter the college’s annual tuition draw.

Picture Your Future is a province-wide tour run by Colleges Ontario, the advocacy organization for the province’s 24 public colleges. This is the third time the tour has run in Ontario, gaining momentum each year.

Picture Your Future is part of a broader, longer-term effort by Ontario’s colleges to help students learn about the more than 600 programs available at colleges. Students are encouraged to think about their options and the post-secondary path that best suits their strengths and career goals.
