Students stand in front of a fountain in ItalyAfter working so hard all year long, what student would say no to an end-of-semester adventure in Europe?

If you or someone you know would like to say “buon giorno” to Italy, “grüezi” to Switzerland, or “hallo” to Germany, tell them about EuroTour 2015, organized by faculty in Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation. From visiting a castle in Heidelberg, to tasting parmigiano cheese fresh from the dairy, to dinner in Paris, it will be the trip of a lifetime.

The whirlwind tour will be from April 21 to May 2 and costs $3,350 a person. All students, from all Georgian campuses and program areas, are welcome.

RVH evacuation exercise: Barrie Campus, Oct. 7

Published on Wednesday, Oct. 01, 2014

During Georgian’s recent fire evacuation and lockdown drills, we all learned the importance of preparing for the unexpected. Our friends at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) are also working on emergency preparedness. They have planned for an evacuation exercise on Tuesday, Oct. 7 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

As part of the exercise, 40 to 60 mock patients will be moved from the hospital to the Barrie Campus Athletic Centre. The move will involve many trips by bus, and possibly other hospital vehicles.

Mock patients will be brought in through Georgian Drive to the Alumni Courtyard and in the doors leading to The Last Class and Students’ Administrative Council (SAC) office. Please download a map to view the planned route: RVH mock evacuation exercise – enter/exit route (PDF)

If possible, you’re encouraged to use an alternative entrance during this time.
