Doors thrown open at John Abbott College | Portes ouvertes réussies au Cégep John Abbott

Saturday, October 22 was the day John Abbott College threw open its doors and welcomed more interested young people than ever before. Seven thousand seven hundred guests asked questions of faculty, employees and current students while many also took in an accident scene simulation set up by three career program groups.

Students from Police Technology, Paramedic Care and Nursing set the scene outside for a situation involving a driver under the influence and pedestrians. The scenario attracted the attention of many onlookers.

The entire campus was abuzz with energy not seen since January 2020 as visitors learned about the various programs of study offered and the variety of student services for which the College is renowned. Guided tours were also organized to allow people to visit classrooms, buildings and common areas throughout the College.

Former students, now parents, shared memories with faculty and staff. They took the opportunity to sign up for the Abbott Alumni Registry to be notified of events and activities planned by the College and the Foundation.

 


 

Ce sont quelque 7,700 visiteurs qui ont franchi les portes du Cégep John Abbott lors de la journée Portes ouvertes du samedi 22 octobre. Professeurs, employés et étudiants étaient ravis de répondre aux questions d’étudiants du secondaire et leurs parents.

Les visiteurs ont pu s’informer sur les différents programmes d’études offerts et sur les nombreux services aux étudiants pour lesquels la réputation du Collège n’est plus à refaire. Des visites guidées étaient aussi organisées pour permettre aux gens de voir les classes, les pavillons et les aires communes partout dans le Collège.

Les étudiants des départements de Techniques policières, de Soins paramédicaux et de Soins infirmiers ont participé à une simulation d’accident avec blessés causé par un conducteur avec facultés affaiblies. Le scénario a attiré l’attention de plusieurs curieux.

Le campus tout entier était animé d’une énergie qu’on n’avait pas vue depuis les Portes ouvertes de janvier 2020. On a même vu des anciens étudiants devenus parents partager des souvenirs avec les enseignants et le personnel. Ils en ont profité pour s’inscrire au registre des anciens d’Abbott pour être avisés des événements et activités prévus par le Collège et la Fondation.
