Hey new GPRC students,

This July, we will be hosting a very special new event at the college. Everyone is the “new person” at some point in their life, and it can be a pretty challenging and scary experience sometimes. It’s normal to have big questions running through your mind like “will they like me”, “who do I ask for help”, “will I have what it takes”? If you are anything like, me, you also may have small (but very important) questions like “where are the bathrooms?” running through your head.

On July 15we are inviting all new GPRC students to visit our Grande Prairie campus and get a feel for some of the answers to those questions. Come for a campus tour, eat lunch with other new students, learn more about financial aid, and get some help picking your classes! Our goal and hope that by attending this event and spending some time here you will feel more at home, learn where the bathrooms are, and make some new friends before September. Let’s make your time here at GPRC the best possible together.

As a Recruitment Specialist for GPRC, who spends much of my year traveling to high schools to talk to students, I am really excited to have the opportunity to show you around my school and to welcome you as a member of the GPRC community. I hope you will appreciate our beautiful, tight-knit, friendly campus as much as I do! If you are unable to attend the event, please know that there is a team of people ready to assist you during the week,both  in-person on our campus and over the phone. Give us a call or send us an email and we would be happy to give you a hand!

Did I mention that attending the event gets your entered into a $500 Tuition voucher draw? So come, join us and have some fun.
