Spring and Fall 2015 Graduates Get Prepared at Countdown to Grad

Durham College’s (DC) spring and fall 2015 graduates-to-be had the chance to find out everything they need to know about their upcoming graduation during the college’s annual Countdown to Grad. Held at the Oshawa and Whitby campuses and Pickering Learning Site, these events were sponsored by the DC Alumni Association.

Students were invited to stop by for a free slice of pizza and, more importantly, for the opportunity to learn about all things graduation, from alumni benefits and employment services to convocation details. Students also had the chance to enter the School Cup Challenge.

“This is the fourth year we’ve hosted the Countdown to Grad,” said Lori Connor, alumni officer, Durham College. “It’s a great way to celebrate our students’ upcoming graduation and share relevant information to make sure they feel supported as they transition from a DC student to alumni.”

The events were held on Tuesday, March 10 (Oshawa campus), Thursday, March 12 (Whitby campus) and Tuesday, March 17 (Pickering Learning Site) and over 900 students attended.

“Now that it’s finally here graduation seems to be a daunting step,” said Heather Bulman, a second-year Public Relations student and member of DC’s Team Experience. “The opportunity to learn from the Alumni Association really put my mind at ease, and now I can’t wait to be a DC alumna. I’m excited to move beyond school and use all that I’ve learned in the workplace.”
