Georgian opens new centre for international students

September 22, 2016

Georgian College has taken a step forward in achieving international student satisfaction through the opening of its Segal International Centre. The college states that the new centre was made possible through a $400K donation from guard.me insurance, whose president and founder Keith Segal will be the centre’s namesake. The new centre reportedly features a multi-media screen, computer stations, and a lounge for domestic and international students to interact. The centre will also provide orientation activities and important information sessions on visas and cross-cultural communication. “This centre will help foster a sense of community, connectedness and collaboration, and will ensure [students] are fully immersed in Georgian life,” says Georgian President MaryLynn West-Moynes.
