The Square officially opens at Mohawk College

Mohawk College celebrated the official opening of it's new centre for student services with a surprise performance by Aboriginal dancers, Bollywood dancers, Chinese Dragon dancers and Mo the Hawk.

The Square, Mohawk’s new centre for student services at the Fennell Campus, brings together a team of 120 staff who provide a comprehensive range of services and supports, including financial aid, registration, recruitment, admissions, counseling, New Canadian and International advising, campus employment and accessible learning services.  The centre will serve 7,000 full-time students at the Fennell Campus, Mohawk’s 42,000 continuing education registrants and support student services offered at the college’s other four campuses in Hamilton and Brantford.

The new location consolidates services that were previously offered at 17 locations across the Fennell Campus.  Renovations to transform the former library into the new home for one-stop student services began earlier this year and the $1.35 million project was completed on time, on budget and accident free.
