SUJAC Update – October 22nd

Hello again Abbotteers, This is your second SUJAC Update for the month of October, which means that mid-terms are finally over! We’re positive that all of you managed to survive them, but remember to keep your eye on the prize and continue striving for academic success. As always, if you’re having difficulties in your classes, don’t hesitate to go see an Academic Advisor in Student Success Services in H-148. Did you realize that there is free tutoring on every subject in the College. Come check out the schedule on SUJAC’s bulletin board (outside
P-101).

After our amazing turnout for SUJAC Club Day at the beginning of the month, John Abbott managed to top itself by hosting a fantastic Open House (held on Oct. 18th). The event, which drew over two thousand interested students and parents, had a very enthusiastic atmosphere where lots of information about all of the school’s programs and activities were distributed. A huge thank you to all the volunteers, students, faculty, and staff who took time out of their busy schedules to help make this event amazing and show prospective students why Abbott is the best school for them to attend.
We here at SUJAC would also like to give special thanks to Macdonald College, who provided the JAC Open House with some deliciously crunchy home-grown Gala apples!

In College-related news, the Confederation of Anglophone CEGEP’s (COAC) held its first meeting of the school year. Dedicated to uniting the Anglophone Collegial voice in Quebec, representatives from Dawson, Vanier, Marianopolis, Champlain Lennoxville, and, of course, John Abbott met to discuss the pressing issues facing English school students currently. Many issues were raised across the different schools and plans are currently being made to fix them; so stay tuned!

SUJAC would also like you to know that from Wednesday to Friday, October 29th-31st, the SUJAC Office (P-101) will turn into a Halloween haunted house! Swing by for a chance to meet your scary representatives and grab some spooky delights while you’re here.

As always, if you ever have any difficulties with your teachers or the grades you’ve received, or if you have any issues about the school that you think should be discussed, feel free to swing by P-101 and chat with us.

Cheers, The SUJAC Executives
