The Animation department at Sheridan College had the luxury of attracting many interested applicants on November 15th at the Open House.

We estimate that the college had about 1700 attendees at the open house, and about 300 who had portfolios reviewed by faculty. Students from all over the globe including Florida, Delaware, New York and England attended the open house. Of the 300, about 160 were animation.

Heather Fawcett, manager of student recruitment, commented on the day’s success.

“Our prospective animation students and their families were very impressed with the space as were the reviewers.  Overall, I think it worked out very well,” she said.

“The average wait time in line was  2-2 1/2 hours and I did not receive one complaint. Many of the students went in anxious but all of them came out beaming and said they were thrilled to have had time with the faculty.”
