SAIT Polytechnic is one of Canada's leading post secondary institutions and its vision is to help students further their passions. Located in Calgary, Alberta, SAIT offers a great variety of leading edge programs, including business, construction, travel and tourism, computer technology and much more! This month, SAIT Polytechnic once again hosted its extremely popular semi-annual Open House and as a new staff member within the School of Business, I had the honour of participating!
On February 8th and 9th, faculty, staff members, and student volunteers enthusiastically opened SAIT's doors and energetically welcomed thousands of prospective students. While we had over 30 busloads of high school students, we also welcomed numerous mature students and prospective continuing education students.
The atmosphere on campus during the two days of Open House was exciting! Prospective students crowded around information booths, adventurously embarked on guided tours, tried their skills in various trades at the "Try-A-Skill" stations, and last but certainly not least, applied to SAIT at our registration stations!
Over the Open House period, SAIT received close to two thousand applications and in the process, we've made new and very positive relationships with many individuals in the community. As a SAIT employee, the Open House event was also a fantastic way to meet staff and students in various programs around campus.
Thank you to everyone who helped make SAIT's Open House a tremendous success, as well as to everyone who came to check it out!
