Members of Orangeville’s Humber campus are reaching out to anyone interested in attending the campus, along with a free concert by playing the community piano to provide some music.

On Wednesday (August 16) members of the college were outside the Altered Native on Broadway to promote their programs while providing some peaceful music on the public piano from a graduate music student from the Lakeshore campus’s Creative and Performing Arts program.

Stephanie Maggs, the campus’s recruitment and event planner, says they decided to do this event with the piano because it has been “at the heart of such controversy” over the past couple months, since the debate as to whether it should stay.

She added the piano is great for the community, as the arts aren’t promoted as much now as during her time. “There’s people who played piano in their childhood” who walk by to try it and then are “lost in the moment.”

Ms. Maggs says that although the campus has been in Orangeville the past 10 years, there are some people who “still don’t know we’re in town.” The campus currently has about 300 students enrolled in Early Childhood Education, General Arts & Science College and University Transfer, Police Foundations, and Social Service Workers programs.

She says they’re also promoting their newest program, Design Foundation, there are still spots available except for social service workers program, and their orientation is August 23. For additional information in general or their orientation, visit
