The Story Behind the Name
David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre
A $3 million donation from David Braley moved Mohawk to the head of the class for collegiate athletics and recreation. The donation from the owner and president of Orlick Industries supported construction ofthe 64,000 square foot centre where Mohawk students compete, train and exercise. The LEED gold certified building, a showpiece building on the Fennell Campus, opened in September 2013. This building replaced what had been one of the oldest and smallest gyms among Ontario’s 24 colleges. The centre has since hosted provincial and national tournaments and is open to students, staff and the community.
Mohawk College educates and serves 30,000 full-time, part-time, apprenticeship and international students at three campuses and two City School locations at the Eva Rothwell Resource Centre and the Central Public Library in Hamilton, Ontario. Mohawk has ranked first among all Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area colleges in student satisfaction for seven consecutive years and first in graduate satisfaction for the past five years. Mohawk ranks 15th among all colleges in Canada for applied research activity and has been named among Canada’s greenest employers and the region’s top employers for the past three years.
