Durham College’s (DC) Office of Development and Alumni Affairs kicked off the new DC Brewing Memories Coffee Tour with two stops right at home at the college’s Whitby and Oshawa campuses. The travelling series of events is part of DC’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2017 and will see the college host coffee breaks throughout the year at 50 workplaces that employ DC graduates.
The tour is designed to provide opportunities for the college to re-connect with its graduates, hear their success stories, learn about their career paths and share with them all the new and exciting things happening at DC – all while enjoying free coffee, tea and baked goods.
Twenty DC employee-graduates gathered together at the Whitby campus on February 15 and more than 50 gathered at the Oshawa campus on February 16. Each attendee had the opportunity to share details of their program and year of graduation, and received a commemorative “DC alumni at work” sticker to be proudly displayed around the office.
The tour’s next stop will be at Lakeridge Health Port Perry hospital. DC alumni who would like to have the college visit their workplace should contact Lisa McInerney.
