The PAL Project

We all need a friend to help sometimes!  The PAL Project is just that.  A  referral based or sign-up program in which we pair a PAL with interested students for a 3 week period. PAL and students will schedule times to meet and engage in activities and supports directed by student need or interest.   These meet-ups may include things like; campus and city tours, learning how to access services and activities or just time spent together on campus.

The PAL Project is currently taking on limited students for the following time periods;    

  • February 18
  • March 11

If you are interested in signing up for the PAL Project please email Ryan Stoness at; rstoness@loyalistcollege.com. If you would like to volunteer to be a future PAL, please email Ashley Wannamaker at; awannamaker@loyalistcollege.com.

Bridge Days

Participants will have opportunity to join in fun activities, including a tour of the Loyalist College Belleville campus and a bus tour of the Belleville area. Run by upper-year students, Bridge Days participants will receive fun giveaways and have the opportunity to learn firsthand about being a student at Loyalist College.  A great first step!
