Payback Time! Repaying your OSAP
Did you receive OSAP funding while you were at Brock? Join us for a presentation from the National Student Loans Service Centre to learn more about repaying your student loans, your six month grace period, and your choice of monthly interest rates. If you experience difficulty repaying your OSAP loans – there is help!  We will discuss the support available to students through the new Repayment Assistance Plan (RAP).   
 
Presented by: Don Dimaulo, of the National Loans Centre

 

 
Go Global: Adventures Abroad
Graduating and not too sure what your next plans are?  With so many amazing international opportunities available, you should consider traveling overseas!  We’ll explore programs that can get you working overseas, volunteering, teaching English and more. Maybe you’re just looking for a quick tour around Europe to celebrate graduation – we’ll talk about that too! In the words of Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 
 
Presenter: Christina Bosilo, International Services
 

 Beyond the BA: The Value of College Graduate Programs

Presenters: Krista Woodhouse, Niagara College, Jason Humphries, Conestoga College and Kelvin Lee, Mohawk College
