Thou­sands at John Ab­bott Col­lege

Montreal Times - - News -

Thou­sands took ad­van­tage of the sunny and warm weather on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21 to visit the an­nual John Ab­bott Col­lege open house. Po­ten­tial stu­dents and their par­ents asked ques­tions, vis­ited labs and wan­dered through class­rooms.

Cur­rent stu­dents from Po­lice Tech­nol­ogy, Pre­Hos­pi­tal Emergency Care and Nurs­ing pro­grams set the scene out­side for a multi-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent sim­u­la­tion. Ac­tors from the The­atre de­part­ment and a crit­i­cally in­jured high-fi­delity sim­u­la­tion man­nequin caught the crowd’s com­plete at­ten­tion. Oth­ers vis­ited the Psy­chol­ogy de­part­ment watch­ing a demon­stra­tion with friendly in­tel­li­gent rats or stepped out­side with a Physics teacher and as­tron­omy ex­pert to view our skies through a tele­scope.

The cam­pus buzzed with en­ergy at ev­ery level as young peo­ple looked around, step­ping into a snap shot of col­lege life at Ab­bott. So many for­mer stu­dents, now par­ents, shared mem­o­ries with fac­ulty and staff, sign­ing up to be on the Ab­bott Alumni reg­is­ter to be kept in­formed as events and ac­tiv­i­ties ramp up to the Col­lege’s 50th an­niver­sary in 2020.
