Sarnia’s Lambton College recently underwent a dramatic revamp. In 2018, the college completed renovations on its Centre of Excellence in Energy and Bio-Industrial Technologies. The $14.2-million upgrade added a 7,000-sq.-foot training space. Lambton also opened the 60,000-sq.-foot NOVA Chemicals Health and Research Centre in 2019. It houses the college’s health science labs and simulation facilities.
Rounding out the campus makeover is a new athletics and fitness complex. It includes a double gymnasium that has seating for 1,241 fans and a VIP booth, a fitness studio that hosts live and digital classes, and athletic therapy and first aid rooms.
Lambton offers a range of degree, diploma and certificate programs. Areas of expertise include applied research technology, health, entrepreneurship and new sectors such as bio-industry and esports. The esports entrepreneurship and administration program at Lambton is the first of its kind in Canada, and it’s part of a college-wide initiative that includes the creation of a varsity esports team and a world-class gaming arena. The campus also has a massage clinic and a salon and spa, staffed by students in the esthetician, hairstylist and massage therapy programs.
Budding entrepreneurs should note that Lambton took home national titles at the Enactus National Exposition, a student entrepreneurial competition, in 2018 and 2019.
