College is an exciting and challenging time, so at George Brown, we work towards giving students ways to help shape their college experience in and out of class.

Hosting events, activities, and opportunities which promote learning, growth, and connection, the Student Life team at George Brown is dedicated to supporting the success of all students by providing opportunities for you to connect with campus life outside of the classroom.

College life is about so much more than just going to class, so take advantage and get involved in enriching your college experience through events, networking activities, student groups, clubs, or with the Student Leadership Academy. Just remember, you belong here, and you are not alone!
