Prospective students are invited to attend Fall Open House at Lethbridge College, where they can explore campus, check out some of the more than 60 certificate, diploma, degree and apprenticeship programs offered, meet expert instructors and more.

Open House is free to attend between 1 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25, but interested students are asked to register in advance for the chance to win one of three great prizes including a Nintendo Switch Lite, an e-scooter and a $100 Mastercard gift card. Individuals who encourage friends to join them at Open House can also be entered to win one of five $100 Gas King gift cards with the refer-a-friend prize draw.

In addition, those who attend and would like to apply to the college will have the $100 application fee reduced by 50 per cent.

A free meal will be served between 5 and 7 p.m. near the Food Court, courtesy of the college’s Culinary Arts program.

“Open House makes it easier for potential students to begin their post-secondary journey,” says Marko Hilgersom, Registrar. “They can come and see what we offer, and perhaps find a program that aligns with their interests or even sparks a new interest. It’s a great event for anyone who is considering attending Lethbridge College.”

A full Lethbridge College program list, virtual tour of campus, residence information, application requirements, FAQs and more can be found on the Fall Open House website,

In addition to attending Open House, future students may also be interested in these events:
