Dawson K-Pop team was front page news

November 8th, 2023

Dawson’s K-Pop dance team, IntenCITY, under Campus Life, was featured on the front page of The Montreal Gazette on Nov. 1. The dancers hosted a Random Dance Play activity where snippets of K-Pop songs are played. If you know the choreography of the dance, you jump onto the dance floor and dance in unison. The activity always brings a lot of spectators and of course, K-Pop dance fanatics.

“Dawson has competed in the Intercollegiate Triple Crown K-Pop Dance competition the last four years,” said Michelle Lee of the Campus Life team in Student Services. “We brought home the trophy the last two years. We compete against Vanier, Marianopolis, Champlain, John Abbott, and last year, Brébeuf was included. Each school performs three dances. Dawson’s team, IntenCITY, is strong again this year and is working hard to hold onto the trophy at the 2024 competition.”

People of all ethnic backgrounds are part of this community, not only Koreans, Michelle says.


Dawson moose activity made the news

November 8th, 2023

The First Peoples’ Centre hosted a traditional moose field dressing and cookout on the west grounds of the College on Oct. 24. Under the guidance of elders and knowledge holders, Cree, Inuit and Kanienʼkehá꞉ka students participated in the preparation, while welcoming other members of the Dawson community to participate as well. Over the course of the day, students from many communities were able to reconnect with customs not commonly practiced in our urban setting.

Tiawentí:non Canadian of the First Peoples’ Centre oversaw the planning of the successful event that will generate other learning opportunities over semesters to come. This winter, students will tan the moose hide during an outdoor activity, and Brian Mader of the Environmental Science program will use the moose skull for a biology course activity. The food prepared during this initiative will feed students at the First Peoples’ Centre well into the winter semester.

The First Peoples’ Centre thanks Living Campus and the Dawson Foundation for providing a chest freezer for food storage following the event.

CBC News was on campus to report on the activity. See their coverage of the story here:
