Hundreds of students to get their first taste of the NC life through NC KickSTART

09:00 to 10:00

September-start students at Niagara College are getting a head start on college life this summer, through NC’s pre-orientation program.

NC’s KickSTART offers students at both campuses a sneak peek at college life to help ease their transition and prepare themselves for the first day of class. In small group settings, they have the opportunity to gain information about their academic program, an overview of student services, and details about supports and involvement options available for them. The program also includes academic group advising sessions for each area. 

While KickSTART programs started Aug. 1, students who haven’t already registered for their session can still do so at
