More than two hundred new Social
Science and Commerce students, together with some parents and
friends, attended a "Welcome and Information Session"
held for them on April 11. Following a jazz performance given
by some of our music students, the Director General, Michael
Macchiagodena, the Faculty Dean, Heather Lewis, an Academic Advisor,
Debby Resnick, a representative of the VCSA, and current Vanier
students addressed the new students in the Auditorium. Tours
followed to the Information Technology Centre, the Learning Centre
and a workshop on Financial Aid, given in the Library by Richard
West. The final stop was our new Student Mall where faculty members
from Social Science, Commerce and the English Department greeted
the students and displayed materials. The table for our new Social
Sciences Major was particularly popular! Also much appreciated
were the tables staffed by Counsellors and Academic Advisors.
Thank you to all who came and all who
helped make the day a success. We now invite you to view some
excellent photos of the event taken by Vanier Communications
student Liam Chapman.
