Algonquin College Enrollment Around the Thousand Mark for Another Year

Algonquin College is welcoming a thousand students to the waterfront campus in Pembroke this week.

 Manager of Community and student affairs, Jamie Bramburger, says they are very excited to be welcoming almost 30 international students this year as well,

“They are coming literally from around the world. We have students here from India, from Chile, Ukraine, from Africa, the United States. So many, many countries from around the world and they are scattered through all of our programs. So it’s very exciting to see that a small community like Pembroke, is able to attract international students”

Bramburger adds the privately built residence’s to house students are all full as well and about 50 percent of the student population is from outside of the Ottawa Valley.
