Elliott Slinn, Student Engagement
Your first semester at Douglas College will be exciting, but also busy. As a new student, you probably have questions about being a student at Douglas and post-secondary in general, and we’re here to help. Sign up for Kickstart to College, and you’ll get connected to our Kickstart Coaches, who are all senior Douglas College student leaders and can answer your questions through email or the Douglas Students’ app.
A Kickstart Coach can walk you through what to expect on your first day of classes, where to find services on campus and get you up to speed on all the great ways you can get involved in the Douglas College community.
Meet four of the Kickstart Coaches here to answer your burning questions. Then sign up for Kickstart to College!
Julia Brown, Associate of Arts Degree, 4th year
“Ask me about events happening this Fall Semester!”
Jerson Sabio, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, 4th year
“Ask me about how to get involved outside the classroom! Douglas is great because of its close-knit community. It’s easier to volunteer, join a club and make friends then at a big post-secondary institution.”
Kathy Wu, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, 4th year
“Ask me for hot tips. For example, if you opt into the College health insurance plan, head to the Douglas Students’ Union to get your benefits card and find out what’s covered!”
Abby Verigin, Bachelor of Physical Education and Coaching, 4th year
“Ask me about the fitness classes I teach on campus or the Student Wellness Awareness Team (S.W.A.T.)!”
