College hosting info event

Secondary students and their parents are invited to visit the campus Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Okanagan College is throwing open the doors of its Vernon campus.

Secondary students and their parents are invited to visit the campus Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to find out about programs, fees, and admission requirements.

Instructors and current students will be on site to answer questions and help students learn about the realities of studying at the college, which includes benefiting from small class sizes and a low student-instructor ratio.

Among those speaking is Devon Weston, a second-year associate of arts student.

“I’m going to the information night to help people learn more about the benefits of the college from a student’s perspective,” he said.

“I chose Okanagan College because it’s affordable, easily accessible on transit, and offers the same educational quality you’d find at other colleges and universities.”

Another benefit attendees will learn about is the college’s small class sizes and low student-instructor ratio.

“I have been able to befriend professors and create valuable connections within the college that is helping me get real work experience,” said Brandon Moeller, a second-year associate of science student.

Okanagan College’s Vernon campus is also hosting an adult learning seminar Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. Mature students can learn about course and program options, short-term programs, and receive information on financial aid.
