We are happy from Dawson College
Congratulations to students Kento Takata (CRLT) and Victor Lewis (Cinema, Video & Communications) who created Dawson’s own version of the Happy video. Kento and Victor planned, recruited volunteers, filmed and edited this video in only 10 days and couldn’t have done it without all the student and faculty volunteers who took part in the video. You can view it on their Youtube channel.

Dawson’s Ecological Garden receives biodiversity certification
A huge thanks goes out to the thousand volunteers from the Dawson Community who helped make the Ecological Peace Garden a reality. It has just been designated a biodiversity garden, a bird garden and a monarch oasis by Espace pour la vie Montréal. A list of criteria set out by Espace pour la vie’s specialists must be met in order to have a garden recognized as a biodiverse space and to obtain the corresponding certification.

More information can be found on Espace pour la vie’s website.

Important information regarding the English Exit Test
The confirmation letters for the May 14, 2014 exit test have been mailed out. You will need this letter to be admitted to the test so you must bring it with you.

If you do not receive your letter by Wednesday, May 7th, please come to the 4B.3A office for a replacement letter.

You will not be admitted to the Exit Test without one.

If you wait until the morning of the test, the line may be very long and may decrease the time you have to write the test.

No extra time will be given to you for this.
