At its main campus and study centers
Cégep de Valleyfield: nearly 2,000 visitors at open house
Last October, Cégep de Valleyfield celebrated the return of its annual open house at its main campus in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, as well as at its study centers.
For the occasion, nearly 2,000 visitors from regional school boards and across Quebec were able to discover the facilities, the different programs of study and the services offered.
Open house at Cégep de Valleyfield
On Thursday, October 26, the Cégep de Valleyfield welcomed over 1,000 Secondary 5 students from regional school boards to its Portes ouvertes sur l'éducation event. In addition to presenting each of its programs in the form of workshops, kiosks in the gymnasium and Café chez Rose, and a reinvented conference on its environment, Cégep de Valleyfield welcomed other CEGEPs, vocational training centers and specialized schools to offer participants a window on other possible avenues.
On Saturday, October 28, the Cégep was back with a public open house. It was a first in its history to hold this event on a weekend, and it was a great success, with attendance almost double that of recent years.
The institution's programs of study, activities and services were presented to visitors in the form of kiosks. In addition to discovering the areas dedicated to each field of study (laboratories, specialized premises, study rooms), attendees could take advantage of various guided tour options to experience, for a day, the Cégep's attractions, including the student residences.
The event was also graced by the presence of 98.5 FM columnist Catherine Beauchamp, and singer-songwriter Massicotte, who shared their experiences at the Cégep de Valleyfield and praised the stimulating environment that the city of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield represents.
