Douglas College opens Aboriginal gathering place

January 20, 2012

Thursday marked the official opening of the new Aboriginal gathering place at Douglas College's New Westminster campus. A 175-square-metre extension built on the fourth floor of the college's south building, the gathering place is a multi-purpose facility used as a classroom, study space, student lounge, and venue for traditional ceremonies. An adjoining smaller room is used for meetings, potlucks, and a staging area for Aboriginal dancers. Douglas College News
