5 Awesome Events Happening Around Campus This November
Theres a lot of really cool things happening around campus this month, so I thought I would take some time to do a round-up post with a little bit of information on them so that you don’t miss out! Durham College always has so many great things for students and interested students to do each month. It’s important to keep a healthy balance in life and I know most of us can get pretty overwhelmed this time of year – so go ahead and take a break and have a little fun around campus!
1. Project Prom
Project Prom is a really cool program that is being put on by students in DC’s Special Events Planning program. On November 25th (Whitby Campus) and November 26th (Oshawa Campus) you can donate your old dresses, shoes and accessories to help less fortunate girls attend the prom of their dreams! With each dress you donate you are entered to win some cool prizes too! For more information, click here.
