While currently spending two days a week on campus for the esthetician program, Mackenzie Lafontaine wonders how her schedule might change in the new year with many programs returning to campus full-time in January.

“I live an hour away and I have to drive in and then I’d have to drive in even more," said Lafontaine. "It [staying partially remote] is cheaper and you don’t spend as much money on gas and as much money on food like when you’re on the campus."

Other programs in the faculty of hospitality, tourism and wellness have faced similar changes to hands-on learning during the pandemic lockdowns.

Campus organizations are bringing back the holiday spirit
by Sevval Kokten

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only forced students to adapt to virtual learning, but has also prevented them from joining extracurricular activities located at the campus.

As more and more people are fully vaccinated, campus organizations are beginning to offer more in-person activities and workshops.

One such organization, Project Lighthouse, known for raising awareness about sexual violence and providing guidance on how to have a healthy sexual relationship recently hosted one of their first free, in-person workshops titled “Holiday Ornament” at the Woodroffe campus on Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021.


Stephanie Dejardin is set to launch Algonquin College's first chapter through the Students' Association in January 2022.

Dejardin is originally from Ottawa, but recently completed her bachelor of science in animal biology at the University of Guelph where she lived for four years. Currently, she’s in her first semester in the medical radiation technology program at Algonquin College.

The Algonquin Food Cupboard, funded by members of the Algonquin community and the Algonquin Students’ Association, seeks to provide students with access to food and necessities.

It is located in the Student Central in the basement of C- Building on the Ottawa Campus and open by appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The food cupboard opened in December of 2014 as a response to student concerns about food insecurity which can be defined as not having reliable access to food.


Students have been back on campus for nearly an entire semester, and many have noticed the state of one of Algonquin College Woodroffe campus's most unique walls - the Bio Wall.

The Bio Wall - or living wall - is looking a lot less green than it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students that have passed by this wall and wondered why this was the case were given an answer in the form of signage.
