Georgian student councils contribute $7.2 M to fundraising campaign

March 17, 2015

The Students' Administrative Councils at Georgian College's Barrie, Orillia, and Owen Sound campuses voted unanimously in support of contributing $7.2 M over 10 years to the institution's "Power of Education" campaign. The gift represents the largest campaign contribution in Georgian history. The funding will support a number of student-oriented projects, including the creation of an online portal for students at all campuses; a new Student Service Centre, renovations to the Administrative Building, and a new sports field in Barrie; a Centre for Community Safety and Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in Orillia; and upgrades to fitness facilities and cafeteria technology in Owen Sound. "Our students take their education seriously and they have a vested interest in the resources that will accelerate their learning and college experience. I'm proud of them for leading the way in our campaign to transform the student experience," said Georgian President MaryLynn West-Moynes. Georgian News Release
