Today is Orientation Day for students taking their classes in the city
Class is back in session at the post secondary level across the province and in Prince Rupert today is Orientation day for NorthWest Community College's local campus.
While the first of day of studies for the 2017-18 year was yesterday, today marks the official welcome to students both new and returning.
The day of events starts at 11:30 with the Official welcome taking place at the NWCC library, that's followed by a Free BBQ for students from Noon to 1 and a chance to review the community service table in the multi purpose room with information for students available from Noon until 2 PM.
The main campus location in Terrace hosted their Orientation Day last Friday, some photos and background to that welcome back event can be reviewed from the NWCC Facebook page.
In addition to the ongoing academic and trades programs available through both the Terrace and Prince Rupert campus locations, the summer saw the local campus introduce a number of localized training programs.
You can review all of the program options available at all of the NWCC campus locations across the Northwest here.
Changes are on the way through the fall for the regional college, over the summer NWCC officially retired their iconic logo, with the familiar NWCC Thunderbird logo to be phased out, something which is just the beginning of what will be a major remake of the image for the educational institution.
As the spring came to an end, NWCC also outlined the progress of their rebranding process which will see the NWCC name retired and new name introduced, the list of four had been narrowed down to four options by May with Sitka, Skeena, Coast Mountain and North Coast the final candidates for the new name for the college.
A decision on the new name is expected to take place as this new school year gets underway.
