In honor of its 10-year anniversary, the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus will host an open house celebration on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The free event will feature campus tours, food trucks, chalk art, children’s activities, student exhibits, a portable planetarium, a Makerspace exhibit and many other engaging activities.
“We are very excited to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with our community,” said Dr. Ryan Theule, vice president of the Canyon Country campus and grants development at the college.
“The campus has benefited from invaluable community support these past 10 years and has become a vital part of College of the Canyons,” he said. “As we reflect upon where we have been and where the campus is headed, we are proud that the campus has provided substantial academic and workforce training for our valley.”
Guests will enjoy the amazing vocal stylings of local country music star Savannah Burrows, the 2016 winner of Santa Clarita’s 35th Local Nationwide Country Showdown Contest.
A variety of self-paced and guided activities will be part of the open house festivities, including a guided garden walk highlighting the trees, plants and wildlife that are native to the Canyon Country campus.
“Our garden walks are a great opportunity to introduce visitors to the diverse flora at the Canyon Country campus,” said Anthony Michaelides, dean of campus services and operations at the Canyon Country campus. “This popular event attracts people of all ages.”
A guided garden walk will be led from 10 a.m. to noon.
Admission is free and open to the public.
Parking will be free in student parking lots for the duration of the event.
“We look forward to celebrating this milestone with our community, staff, and students, and we know that the next 10 years will be tremendously exciting,” Theule said.
