Red Deer College is throwing its doors wide open to show off the programs it offers to anyone, be it a high school student wondering what to do next or someone looking to switch careers.

On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., both the main RDC campus, 100 College Blvd., and the downtown RDC campus, Millennium Centre 4909 49th St., will welcome visitors.

Potential students can connect with college instructors, students, staff and alumni to find the right program, and even apply for programs that start in January or September 2014.

More than 75 programs will be featured during the open house.

“This is a great way for us to connect with future students personally,” said Brad Donaldson, RDC vice-president academic.

“When future students visit our facilities, they are always impressed by our learning spaces and, more importantly, when they connect with our friendly staff and expert instructors it helps them see that RDC is a great fit.”
