ACHIEVE,

What you learn in the first two years
of your college life will be the base
for everything you learn in university.
Douglas College was the perfect
place to prepare myself to transfer to
university. With its small classes and
excellent professors, I could learn
the subjects step-by-step. Though I
could barely speak English when I first
came to Canada, I have successfully
transferred into the SFU business
program and am enjoying my university
life. Thank you Douglas College!
