The College will host its Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 17 at its campuses in Peterborough, Lindsay, Haliburton and Cobourg, and at the Eastern Ontario Emergency Training Academy (EOETA) in Norwood.

“Open House is a great opportunity for prospective students and their families to visit Fleming College and get all their questions answered,” said Carrie Truman, Manager of Student Recruitment. “Guests can tour the campuses, residences and athletic facilities, speak with faculty and current students, and learn more about college life.”

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. Visitors can also learn more about the many student services and supports available on campus including Health Services, Counselling and Accessible Education Services, Career Services and Tutoring Services and Academic Skills.

To showcase the hands-on learning that takes place at Fleming, many of the programs will provide live demonstrations of learning activities including:

  • Sutherland Campus – freshly baked cookies in the Culinary Lab
  • Frost Campus – Blasting Techniques demonstration
  • Haliburton Campus – artists working in their labs
  • Cobourg Campus – Visitors can tour the Personal Support Worker lab
  • Eastern Ontario Emergency Training Academy (EOETA) – Students applying for the Pre-service Firefighter Education and Training program are invited to visit the training facility in Norwood (36 Industrial Dr.) where the program is located.
