Students surpass fundraising goal while raising awareness for DIFD
by Tanner Reil

A group of Algonquin College recreation and leisure services students have raised nearly $3,000 in funds, and an immeasurable amount of awareness towards Do It For Daron (DIFD) youth mental health.

Students Tia Taft, Cathy Dowsett, Julianna Alibrando and Dakota Ostrowski have long surpassed their assignment goal of $500 for their second-year community development class.

Cartoons aren't just for kids, and animation genres and audiences are more diverse than ever. This has required animation studios to evolve not only what they are doing, but also consider who is doing the work.

We live in a competitive era where many applicants may apply for the same position, making it almost impossible for an individual to find their dream job and what path to follow to secure it. Therefore, knowing how to market yourself is essential when you are looking for a job.

The Office for Applied Research, Innovation, Entrepreneurship (ARIE) and Employment Support at Algonquin College recently hosted a free virtual class titled "How to Market Yourself" for college students. The workshop provided an in-depth understanding of the values individuals have to offer others, acknowledging what employers are searching for and bonding these values to meet the needs of the employer.


Algonquin College projects a $1.9 million deficit for the first quarter of April 1, 2021.

This is down from the $10 million deficit projected in April 2021, according to financial figures from June 30, 2021 presented to the board of governors on Oct. 25, 2021 over zoom.

“Stronger than expected spring enrolment has resulted in higher tuition revenues and service revenues across the campus which does give us some optimism for the remainder of this fiscal year”, said Grant Perry, the chief financial officer of the college.
