Lakeland College Open House

Lakeland College bustled with activity on October 20 and 21 as the post-secondary institution hosted its annual Open House.

Prospective students alongside their families and teachers were invited to explore the campus, selecting from tours of residence, the Animal Health Clinic, the Student-Managed Farm, the Agriculture Technology Centre, the Dairy Learning Centre, and the Emergency Training Centre’s prop field.

Visitors were also invited to sit in on a class that aligned with their program interest, with options including Precision Farming Global Positioning; Horsemanship, Welfare & Ethics; and Diversified Crop Production.

The college had devised a Bingo-style “ROWDY” card to encourage visitors to try out various activities on the tours. Individuals could earn stamps through Try-A-Trade activities, which included virtual and actual welding, woodworking, electrical repair, and running a 502-cubic-inch engine. Human Services hosted a giant Jenga game while Interior Design Technology invited participants to create their own concept board. An accumulation of five stamps earned participants a free Lakeland t-shirt, which could then be used for free entry to the Lakeland hockey games being held in Lloydminster over the weekend.

Walking through the halls of the WHT Mead building, visitors could take their time exploring informational displays on various college clubs and programs. A mini golf challenge through a miniature version of the college’s iconic Alumni Hall offered an opportunity to earn free popcorn.

Those who attended the open house were able to apply to the college with the $90 application fee waived.

Staff and current students were on-hand throughout the campus to answer questions about everything from finances to life at Lakeland.

Established in 1913, Lakeland College is a place of possibility that serves more than 6,400 students every year at its campuses in Vermilion and Lloydminster, and through online and off-site programs and courses. Lakeland College offers programming in the areas of agricultural sciences, business, energy, environmental sciences, fire and emergency services, health and wellness, human services, interior design technology, trades and technology, university transfer, and foundational learning.
