August 25, 2021
As many cégeps in QC re-opened on Monday for in-person classes, students expressed their excitement about going back to classes in person. Students at Dawson College said highlights included seeing friends, being less distracted while attending classes, and seeing people rather than looking at a screen. “Today I met a lot of new people and made some friends, so I think I’m pretty lucky to be in on the first day, compared to last year’s students,” said first-year student JJ Vanderzon. Global News says that faculty are also enjoying the transition back to in-person classes. Dawson instructor Jonathon Sumner described how he “could feel the excitement in the classroom, it was really palpable.” Montreal Gazette | Global News (QC)
