Speed Networking & Dine with a Dragon
On March 21st NSCC's Y.E.S. Program (Your Entrepreneurial Self), in collaboration with NSCC Alumni Relations, hosted the 3rd annual Speed Networking event at Pier 21. This event paired students and alumni entrepreneurs to network, learn and share their stories as it relates to entrepreneurship and the NSCC experience.
This private networking session was a prelude to the Dine with a Dragon gala, the signature event concluding the annual Halifax Entrepreneurship Expo. Guests from our networking session made their way over to the Halifax Cunard Centre to enjoy a delicious meal and hear keynote speaker Arlene Dickenson from CBC's Dragons Den – and some lucky guests even had the opportunity to meet her and get a photo!
Student Association Reunion
The NSCC Student Association marked a milestone this year – 10 years under one common constitution!
NSCC hosted a reunion before the annual Student Life Banquet at Waterfront Campus to celebrate a decade of student leaders. This event was attended by both alumni and current Student Association executives.
"Ten years later, the common constitution continues to be the cornerstone of a dynamic student government and we were truly excited to recognize the commitment of our student leaders over the years at the SA Alumni Reception" said Lori Foran, Manager, Student Engagement and Awards. "It unites campuses and enables student leaders to collaborate so we can maximize the services we offer to the student body."
Lunenburg Culinary Gala
Principal Craig Collins welcomed approximately 80 guests to this gala which featured a sumptuous five-course meal with tantalizing tastes from appetizers to desserts. Not only did culinary students prepare the feast, but they also served the guests each course and described in detail the dishes as they were served.
On April 18, 2013 the NSCC Public Relations class hosted 60 attendees at their annual Portfolio Showcase (held at the Compass Room of Casino Nova Scotia). Attended by members of the local PR industry, Portfolio Showcase gives students an opportunity to network with their future colleagues and proudly display the portfolio they have worked on all year.
This year's event chairs were PR students Amanda MacDonald and Colette Wyllie. Their great ideas and hard work made the event a tremendous success. Amanda was also the winner of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Maritime Canada Portfolio Competition, which annually chooses the most impressive portfolio. "It went off without a hitch," says Amanda. "It truly represented who we are as a class and it was great to finally be seen as colleagues in our industry."
