Fall 2021 Update

Fall update cover image
A new beginning powered by donor support It’s hard to believe that a new school year has started with many students returning to Campuses for the first time this fall. The last few months have been a time of change and growth at the College as we celebrated the official opening of the AVC-COGS campus housing and Innovation Centre, a new Centre of Forest Innovation at Truro Campus, and the opening of a new wing at the Institute of Technology Campus. These changes will create new opportunities for Nova Scotians and point to a bright future for our Province. In this update, we share news on exciting initiatives that are delivering change, stories of the resiliency and accomplishments of NSCC students, and inspiring stories of giving back. We continually hear from students that donor support is a source of inspiration for their success. Thank you for your continued commitment and encouragement of NSCC students. - The NSCC Foundation Team
