Mugs, cookies and lemonade in celebration of Dawson’s new branding
On Wednesday, June 1, all Dawson employees were invited to drop by the 4A-B hallway to receive free pink lemonade, cookies, and a brand new Dawson mug to celebrate the college's new branding.
Thank you to all who came by, the giveaway was a great success!
Those who haven't had the chance to collect their mug may schedule a pickup at the Communications Office by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org before June 20.
Greater demand to attend graduation
There was an overwhelming response from graduating students indicating they plan to attend the graduation ceremony at Place des Arts on June 22. As a result, the Communications Office had to make some major changes to the proceedings, including the addition of a third ceremony at 10 a.m.
By the deadline to respond, over 800 about-to-be Dawson graduates had RSVP'd yes! Many of these students were deprived of their high school graduation in 2020. The last time Dawson had an in-person graduation was in June 2019.
A special gift for all employees on June 1
To celebrate our new branding and our Dawson employees, please stop by the table set up between the Director General's office in 4A and the Academic Dean's office in 4B on Wednesday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All employees will receive a small gift from the College.
