Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Campus Beholder

The philosophy that a beautiful campus creates both a stress-relieving and inspiring atmosphere was confirmed by the college's Board of Governors during its February 23rd meeting. 

The Board reviewed a report from the administration detailing projects that had been carried out recently under the college's Campus Beautification policy. 

The report noted: 

The objective of Campus Beautification is to continue to create a world-class campus that enhances and complements our students' educational experience, while furthering St. Clair College's ability to participate in the highly competitive business of student recruitment.
