Rocking out at Dawson VIB event March 29
A lively event stopped by Dawson on March 29 to move and inspire students and staff. The VIB event is touring campuses across Quebec to promote well-being and health. The event featured a Pound also known as “rocking out” workout, pictured; photo courtesy of RSEQ.
One of College Nurse Julie Gosselin’s student health ambassadors reported: “The participants really enjoyed the event and they liked their free merch. People seemed to really enjoy the Pound session as well since most of them had never done it before
“I think the event was really cool! It was a great way to promote physical activity during a time period when students are stressed and tend to forget the little things we should do to stay healthy.”
An evening with Oliver Jones at Dawson March 10
Honouring legendary Montrealer and musician Oliver Jones and inspiring students are the objectives of a special evening being organized by members of Dawson’s Legacy Club with support from Dawson staff, including the Campus Life and Leadership team, Community, Recreation and Leadership Training, Continuing Education and Community Services and the Communications Office.
“Oliver grew up in the Little Burgundy neighbourhood, home to the historic Union United Church, which is very close to the former Selby Campus of Dawson College," said Simeon Pompey of the organizing committee. "Through his work/fame, he has influenced a lot of young Black people in Little Burgundy and Montreal to pursue higher education. It is very fitting that the College has endorsed the initiative to honour him.
“Directly and indirectly, young people’s lives were positively impacted. Through his charity work, Dr. Jones supported initiatives to help youth pursue post-secondary education.”
The evening will include performances, tributes and opportunities for students to ask Dr. Jones questions. There will be guests from community organizations but the VIPs will be Black Dawson students and students who are personally invited.
