At LaSalle College, we are extremely open to your comments about how to make our community even better and more welcoming. In recent months, several projects have been carried out thanks to your ideas. Here are a few of them!
New students, above all if they come from abroad, may find themselves lacking resources when they arrive at the College.
In an aim to be inclusive and develop a community spirit, many students were asked to become buddies. During the whole month of September, they could be identified by their hockey jerseys in College colors, and were available to answer all your questions.
Following the great success of active learning classrooms, eleven new classrooms have been set up. This takes the total number of collaborative classrooms to twenty.
LaSalle College’s collaborative classrooms are innovative learning spaces offering cutting-edge ergonomic furniture and technology to accommodate active learning. Have you seen them?
You told us that you wanted more places to relax. We heard you! Wonderful stylish break areas have been added to the existing ones.
Furniture has been installed in front of La Classe restaurant, decorated with light garlands and wooden walls, giving the space a warm terrace atmosphere.
Two break rooms (with microwaves!) have also been set up, one in the basement and the other on the 3rd floor. These are all great places to relax, eat or study!
Our students’ everyday experience in our college is so important to us that we have decided to dedicate a specific person to the task. Say hello to Jean-Luc, the new student experience director!
Also, student coordinators are making their debut this year. What do they do? They coordinate students! They are there to support you and advise you on your school career and life. Have a question about your file or experiencing any difficulties? Send them a message via MIO or make an appointment to meet them!
The study pods on the 6th floor are ace! Last fall, new individual study spaces were installed on the 2nd floor, in front of the large window behind Jean-Paul Morin Hall. All this was done to satisfy your requests for more places to study and relax.
Creativity is at the heart of LaSalle College’s DNA. This is why a large mural painted by the Australian artist Michael Peck now invites students to take the stairs to the 2nd floor. Because physical activity is important!
Furthermore, the College has been decorated with students art pieces that won the Vitaminart competition. See their creations in the cafeteria, in the break room on the 3rd floor and in the basement.
Composters are making an appearance at LaSalle College! La Classe restaurant-school and the LaSalle à manger cafeteria now have composting infrastructure.
Also, have you noticed the large sorting area at the cafeteria entrance? You can even bring your used batteries!
This eco-friendly initiative comes in addition to the removal of straws and water bottles from the College that happened last year.
And that’s not all! We are constantly doing all we can for your experience to be as pleasant as possible. Keep an eye out for more news!
