Free breakfast, other stress-relievers mark Give Thanks Week at Barrie Campus

Published on Wednesday, Oct. 07, 2015

The week of Oct. 5 to 9 has been identified as a period of high stress, suicide and dropout from postsecondary studies for students across North America.

To counteract this, Georgian’s Mental Health and Wellness Awareness Committee (Barrie Campus) created Give Thanks Week for students. To mark the week, vendor booths, activities and information have been set up outside the Barrie Campus library.

On Wednesday, staff volunteered to serve free breakfast – cereal and fruit – to hungry students.

Staff are also saying thank you to students by helping to fill the Food Locker. Other events include massage and chiropractic demonstrations, a residence thank you table and information from the Athletics department.

St. John’s Therapy dogs and their owners also visited the library to give students a welcome break from their studies – and a brief nuzzle or two.

Campus Cleanup

On Wednesday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon, everyone is welcome to help clean up Georgian’s Barrie, Orillia and Owen Sound campuses. A FREE lunch is included at noon, for all registered participants. Meetup locations are TLC in Barrie, the flagpole in Orillia, and the foyer in Owen Sound. Anyone who brings a reusable mug will get a free coffee voucher, only redeemable that day. Register for the cleanup .


Disposable coffee cups are getting between Georgian and its landfill diversion goals. The Barrie Campus alone uses 2.4 million cups a year, or 6,600 a day. So from Oct. 19 to 25 – during Waste Reduction Week – Georgian is encouraging all students and staff to take a selfie with their reusable mugs and post it to Twitter, Instagram or Georgian’s Facebook page with the hashtag #GCKilltheCup for a chance to win $100 for Georgian Stores. Participants can also take the #GCKilltheCup pledge at

Piloting new waste receptacles

Georgian is testing out three new waste receptacle options to see if they’ll improve landfill diversion. If you try them out, be sure to offer your feedback at for a chance to win lunch for two at a campus food venue of your choice. They’ll be at Owen Sound and Orillia campuses in November. In October, try them at the Barrie Campus:
– Next to Subway
– Outside the library, by the stairs
– By the M Building Tim Hortons, in the main hallway
