Have we told you lately… that you’re awesome?
Winter Semester has certainly had an unexpected ending. COVID-19 has forced everyone to adapt quickly to a new (albeit temporary!) way of life, study and work. It’s during tough times like this that we need to acknowledge and thank those who have gone the extra mile to help others. The following departments have an extra special shout-out for their student staff and volunteers.
A thank you to end all thank yous to the Learning Centre tutors for the support and encouragement you give each other and the students you meet with in your tutoring sessions. We are all lucky to learn with you.
Future Students’ Office
Students are the driving force behind the FSO’s work at Douglas. We would like to thank our student volunteers for serving as an inspiration to us and to the College’s future students. You are true leaders who work hard and devote so many hours of your day help Douglas continue to grow.
To our amazing student staff and volunteers, thank you for helping us develop programming that enhances the student experience on campus. You make our college community even more welcoming, accepting and an enjoyable place to study.
We would like to thank our amazing Student Assistants, Sid Modi and Ane Vu in the Fall semester, and Monique Davis and Veronica Vielma this semester, for their amazing and creative work putting on events and promoting study abroad opportunities. We also want to thank Ainsley Girvan, who, upon her return from an exchange semester at our partner university in Spain, gave presentations for students about her experience. All these students have had such a positive impact on our programs and department.
Thank you to the student staff who work extremely hard to provide exceptional services to Douglas’s sport facilities. You enrich the study and work experience for everyone at the College. Thank you to the Student Team Trainers for the dedication and care you exhibited towards our student-athletes this year. Your support is integral in every athletes’ success. And finally, a big shout out to our student-athlete leaders; thank you for being part of the Pride and making all of us in Athletics proud. Be well. Keep well. Remember… We Are Family!
Indigenous Student Services also has a message for their students:
We are all in this together, so please reach out if you need support or just want to connect. We are here for you.
