Thank you again for all your support this year. After studying at three colleges in Ontario, I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have access to the opportunities for extracurriculars made available at Niagara College. Students can learn so much by engaging in personal and professional development opportunities like leading a club, completing a peer mentor program and working towards goals alongside school. Thank you again and keep up the amazing work at Niagara College.
