Selkirk College is inviting prospective students to come take a peek at what their future could hold.

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.

“When thinking about post-secondary options, it’s always important to get a first-hand look,” said Amy Byers, educational recruitment specialist for Selkirk College.

“Coming to the open house is a great way to start or continue your exploration of what is available at all our campuses in the West Kootenay/Boundary.”

Selkirk College will have representatives from all programs on hand to provide information and answer questions. Programs from all eight 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 the highlights of our year at Selkirk College,” said Byers. “Getting to meet and speak with students from our region who want to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities available in their home communities is really important and at the heart of our overall college mission.”

There will be 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.

Campus tours and free refreshments will be provided. There will be awesome prizes up for grabs including tuition certificates, gift cards and more.

The open house will take place on Tuesday, November 4 between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the main building on the Castlegar campus. For more information head to www.selkirk.ca/open-house.
