Record number of students expected at John Abbott College

August 19, 2010

The number of full-time students expected this year at John Abbott College is at 6,027, over 425 students above capacity. In order to accommodate the record number of students, the CÉGEP has rented space at a high school located next to its campus. "We are doing everything we can to accommodate everyone," says the college's dean of academic systems. Due to an influx of 300 students, Dawson College is renting additional space at an entertainment centre in downtown Montreal. West Island Gazette
