Academic Excellence, Leadership & Professionalism Celebrated at Alumni Social Night

Posted on January 30th, 2014 - Written by: Vanessa Hamkens

From great food and drink to shared laughs, music and dancing, Canadian Business College’s recent Alumni Social Night was the perfect opportunity for former students, impending graduates, faculty and staff to gather and reflect on the 2013 academic year. The event, organized by CBC’s dedicated Student Services Team, was held on Friday, January 24th at The Pilot, a venue adjacent to the College’s Toronto Campus location at Yonge and Bloor.

The occasion provided alumni from all three of our campuses with the opportunity to meet, greet and network with peers and staff. It also allowed the College to recognize exceptional student achievement from the previous year.

John Nelson, President & CEO, Jeffrey Nicholson, In-House Counsel & Paralegal Program Director and Nina Homami, Student Services Manager at Canadian Business College, were all on hand to mingle with those in attendance, share a few inspirational words, and present the evening’s 8 distinguished awards, of which the recipients were (by award):
