Birthday Cake For Thousands At JAC

Fifty years ago yesterday, 1237 students and 179 staff members crossed the threshold of the College for the first time. Since that landmark day, the College has been in perpetual growth welcoming 6500 day division students this year and 2000 at the Centre for Continuing Education.

The College has seen 63,000 students graduate with their DEC, thousands of successful AEC students and more than 16,000 employees, and counting. What will the next fifty years hold?

The 50th anniversary activities were set to kick-off in October 2020. Eleven months late, the first official event took place on the Oval on Tuesday where thousands of came out to enjoy a slice of birthday cake.

The exact schedule of anniversary highlights has yet to be announced as health and safety precautions must be the primary concern but today was a sweet first step.
