Hundreds of prospective students will have the opportunity to explore Fleming College at its annual Spring Open House.
The College will host its Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 6th at its campuses in Peterborough, Lindsay, Haliburton and Cobourg, and at the eastern Ontario Emergency Training Academy (EOETA) in Norwood.
The College will host tours of the campuses and residences as well as offer information sessions on Financial Aid Options, On-and Off-Campus Housing, and Transitioning to College for students with an IEP.
To showcase the hands-on learning that takes place at Fleming, many of the programs will provide live demonstrations of learning activities:
Sutherland Campus: Sensory room experience, immersive virtual reality simulation and freshly baked cookies in the Culinary lab.
Frost Campus: Geology demonstrations in the newly renovated Geo Centre, climbing demonstrations, Blasting Techniques demonstrations, running diesel engine demonstrations and horizontal directional drilling simulations.
Haliburton Campus: Guests can watch students perform live art demonstrations in the campus studios.
Cobourg Campus: Visitors can tour the Personal Support Worker lab.
Pre-service Firefighter Education and Training program: Students applying for the Pre-service Firefighter Education and Training program are invited to visit the EOETA in Norwood (36 Industrial Dr.) where the program is now located. The EOETA has several established training environments including a burn tower, roof and door props, search and rescue maze, confined space prop, and new high-intensity propane training props. As part of the Open House, faculty and current students will be at the EOETA to welcome visitors, provide tours of the facility and perform live demonstrations.
