CLUB LEADERS WANTED FOR WINTER SEMESTER

Hi Everyone,

I need anyone who wishes to lead a club next year to come see me. If you have an idea or a new club or wish to be the leader of an existing one please come see me in student services or send me an email arowe@columbiacollege.ca to discuss.

If you want to start a club that celebrates the culture or language in the place that you come from that would be a great idea. There are a few new clubs that I am looking to start next year that will need leaders to help me organize.

Boxing, Yoga, Climbing, Chess, Ski/Board, Golf, Health & Fitness, Drama, Squash/Racketball, Fashion & Design

All leaders receive a certificate from the college at the end of the semester and will attend a leaders dinner. This kind of experience looks fantastic on your resume.

Good luck with your exams and have a wonderful Winter vacation!

Alex
