1 in Student Satisfaction for the Sixth Straight Year! #

What does number one in student satisfaction mean? It means that every member of the NC team is deeply committed to the success of every member of the student body — ­every student’s success, including yours. This passion for student success can be summed up by the two words: Applied Dreams. And, with an outstanding array of relevant, in-demand programs offering diplomas, degrees, apprenticeships, and graduate certificates, NC is committed to bringing your dreams to life. In your time at NC, you’ll get to know your professors on a first-name basis, in part because the classroom sizes are small, but also because the College is committed to hands-on instruction. You’ll work in unique learning enterprises and industry leading co-op programs that have transformed the way NC students learn. How many times have you heard friends or relatives say of their post secondary education, “I’ve got a degree, but it didn’t really prepare me for a career.” At NC, you’ll be working toward your career from the moment you arrive. And before you leave the College, you’ll likely already have experience in your chosen field. It doesn’t get any better than that!

We’re proud of our “small-town” atmosphere and friendliness, nestled among the region’s historic towns and hamlets. And, we’re equally proud of being at the centre of one of the most populated areas of North America — where ten million people live within a two-hour drive of Niagara College. We can also celebrate having many state-of-the-art facilities, including labs for Laser Technology, Virtual Reality, Welding, and Broadcasting, as well as the renowned Culinary Institute and Canada’s only commercial Teaching Winery whose vintage awards for excellence rival some of the finest in the world. Number One for Six Years! Remember, it’s all about Student Success  — your success. So, whether you’re beginning the journey, taking a fork in the road toward your goal, or building on the credentials you already have, Niagara College Canada is the perfect place to apply your dreams.

After a day of classes, kick back with a cool beverage and share a plate of nachos with friends at one of our two Student Centres. Another great way to meet people is to join one of the college’s many professional and social clubs including film society, robotics, outdoor clubs, and

Building Futures For Students, Employers and Communities The Master Plan is enhancing the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus and transforming the Welland campus by replacing and expanding aging buildings with improved facilities and new technology to create more than 2,000 new spaces in programs, where labour is in high demand in Niagara: skilled trades and technology, health, community services, hospitality, culinary and tourism. This project will significantly impact economic development in the Niagara Region. Included in the Master Plan is a strategy for the sustainability

and naturalization of the Welland Campus. By utilizing new building technologies and executing a comprehensive landscape plan the Welland campus will become a vibrant urban recreational park enjoyed by the entire community. It will also serve as a “living lab� for students to learn about innovative horticulture and environmental technologies. Niagara College’s plan is also investing in human capital through scholarships and bursaries, applied research projects, equipment and learning resources.

Welland Campus Transformation The Welland Campus is undergoing the most dramatic changes made since it opened in 1967. This project will significantly improve the institutional infrastructure in Welland, a provincially designated Economic Improvement Zone.

New Applied Health Institute will add classrooms, labs and a 350-seat auditorium. The institute will create 1,000 new spaces in high demand health programs.

New Athletic Centre with double gymnasium, 1,000 seats, fitness centre and other amenities to enhance the student experience.

New Academic Wing features two 140-seat and three 70-seat lecture theatres as well as labs and classrooms.

Expanded Library and new Learning Commons to provide resources to support student success.

Expansion to the Niagara Technology Centre to provide state-of-the-art learning opportunities and create new spaces in skilled trade and apprentice programs.

Student Centre to enhance the student experience and provide space for community activities and events.

1 in Student Satisfaction for the Sixth Straight Year! #

What does number one in student satisfaction mean? It means that every member of the NC team is deeply committed to the success of every member of the student body — ­every student’s success, including yours. This passion for student success can be summed up by the two words: Applied Dreams. And, with an outstanding array of relevant, in-demand programs offering diplomas, degrees, apprenticeships, and graduate certificates, NC is committed to bringing your dreams to life. In your time at NC, you’ll get to know your professors on a first-name basis, in part because the classroom sizes are small, but also because the College is committed to hands-on instruction. You’ll work in unique learning enterprises and industry leading co-op programs that have transformed the way NC students learn. How many times have you heard friends or relatives say of their post secondary education, “I’ve got a degree, but it didn’t really prepare me for a career.” At NC, you’ll be working toward your career from the moment you arrive. And before you leave the College, you’ll likely already have experience in your chosen field. It doesn’t get any better than that!

We’re proud of our “small-town” atmosphere and friendliness, nestled among the region’s historic towns and hamlets. And, we’re equally proud of being at the centre of one of the most populated areas of North America — where ten million people live within a two-hour drive of Niagara College. We can also celebrate having many state-of-the-art facilities, including labs for Laser Technology, Virtual Reality, Welding, and Broadcasting, as well as the renowned Culinary Institute and Canada’s only commercial Teaching Winery whose vintage awards for excellence rival some of the finest in the world. Number One for Six Years! Remember, it’s all about Student Success  — your success. So, whether you’re beginning the journey, taking a fork in the road toward your goal, or building on the credentials you already have, Niagara College Canada is the perfect place to apply your dreams.

What’s extraordinary about being “Number One in Student Satisfaction” for six straight years is that every year Niagara College (NC) welcomes new students, and every year a new student body puts Niagara at the top. The College has its own theory about this record – it’s simple: NC is committed to our students’ success and it’s in all the words we use.
