July 25, 2014

George Brown College has opened a new lounge to help students taking assessment tests relax. Students are provided with snacks and can speak with counsellors about reducing their anxiety before writing their exam. The lounge also helps foster strong relationships between students, their peers, and Assessment Centre staff. Student reactions have been positive. “It’s peaceful. It’s quiet. There’s some nice music going,” said one student who noted that the lounge helped ease his nerves. The lounge is located on George Brown’s St James campus and opened on July 7. George Brown News
