Top 10 Reasons to #ChooseLambton and Visit Us for Winter Open House

SARNIA, January 3, 2018 – The countdown is on to Lambton College’s first ever Winter Open House and we’ve got a cool list of reasons why Lambton College is the hottest place to be on Saturday, January 13, 2018.

In addition to program displays, information sessions, photo booth fun and some fantastic prizes, here are 10 reasons why you should #ChooseLambton in 2018.

Reason #10: Dean meet and greet - and treats!

One of the best reasons to come to Open House is because you’ll have a chance to meet your future Dean in person. Not only will all of our Deans be on hand throughout the event, but they’ll be waiting with coffee and treats, so you can ask them questions while warming your hands over a hot cup of coffee.

Reason #9: Talk to faculty and meet students.

Open House is your backstage pass to a personal meet and greet with Lambton College faculty. You’ll have the opportunity to ask program-specific questions, learn more about individual courses and even discuss career outcomes. Student ambassadors will also be available from each program to give you the inside scoop on what it’s really like to be a Lambton College student.

Reason #8: Pounce and pizza and #LCPride

We know, that’s actually three reasons. But the chance to meet our mascot Pounce and enjoy free pizza while learning about all the great opportunities available at Lambton College is cause to celebrate. Everyone who comes to Open House, leaves feeling like they’re part of the Pride.

Reason #7: We’re growing by two new buildings – and more!

Our campus is under construction and we’re excited to share updates and plans for our new world-class facilities, the NOVA Chemicals Health & Research Centre and the Athletics & Fitness Complex. Our Centre of Excellence in Energy & Bio-Industrial Technology is also undergoing a major renovation, providing students with access to a state-of-the-practice learning environment.

Reason #6. The Technology Forum

Returning to the Open House lineup for winter is the much-anticipated Technology Forum, which features exclusive presentations by local plant managers, including representatives from NOVA Chemicals, who will speak about the labour market as it pertains specifically to Lambton College graduates. Recent graduates and co-op students will also speak about their own personal experiences and career prospects.

Reason #5: Learn all about our Esports initiatives

Not only are we the first College to launch a full-time academic Esports program, but we’ve got a brand new gaming arena and a varsity esports team. Learn more about how students and the community can utilize the arena for tournament and events, tour our new gaming space, and find out how you can get involved in varsity esports.

Reason #4. Explore the campus

Learn about the various services available to Lambton College students while touring residence, classrooms, labs and other select stops such as the Campus Shop, the cafeteria, the Library Resource Centre, The Cube, and myCareer Centre. You can also become familiar with all the amenities available to students in our 140 room residence, such as foosball and pool tables, a snack bar and media room.

Reason #3: We’ve got new programs (and old favourites, too!)

We’ve got an exciting new lineup of programs available for September 2018 and we’re going to tell you all about them at Open House. Learn more about our brand new Esports – Entrepreneurship & Administration, Fitness & Health Promotion, and Chemical Lab Technician programs including admission requirements and employment prospects.

Reason #2: Apply on the spot!

You’ve toured the campus, met with program faculty and seen everything Lambton College has offer – get your application in early and apply on the spot. Our Enrolment Team will be on hand to help you navigate the application process and answer any questions along the way.

Reason #1: The chance to win your tuition

Every year, one lucky Lambton College student wins their tuition. The tuition draw is our largest giveaway of the year and it’s open to every student who enrolls in a full-time Lambton College program before the May 1 equal consideration deadline.
