Student Affairs Committee:
The College’s student affairs committee, formerly Student Council, consists of two second year students who are selected from those students who submit applications by March 31st each year. The term of their commitment is September-April the following school year.
The committee then seeks a class representative from each class on campus, as well as volunteers and Alley staff. The purpose of the committee is to promote student participation in both academic and social activities throughout the school year. Activities are promoted in the Student Lounge. Watch for information regarding upcoming events and activities.
Parking for students is only available on Lorne Street or at the Colchester Legion Stadium. Student vehicles parked anywhere in the school board parking lot, or at the curb next to the Food Bank, may be towed at the owner’s expense.
The Nova Scotia Community College - Truro Campus residence has a limited number of double and single rooms available for Institute students. The NSCC residence is located less than one kilometer from the Institute campus, at 36 Arthur Street. Accepted students wishing to apply for a room in residence should contact the NSCC Coordinator of residence at (902) 893-5378 or Jane Norman College at (902) 893-3342 to obtain an application. Students should complete that application and forward it, along with applicable fees, to the NSCC as soon as possible.
There is a cafeteria on site, which is open daily, from which snacks and/or meals may be purchased. The cafeteria is located on the first floor. In addition, a student-run canteen, located in the student lounge, provides snacks.
Each January a questionnaire is mailed out to the most recent graduates of the Early Childhood Education, Youth Worker, Special Education, Student Support Worker and Public School Program Assistant programs (a sample questionnaire follows). The returned questionnaires are then used to compile a booklet of employment statistics. Information collected includes previous post-secondary education, number of graduates who have continued their education, location of employment, wages, and reasons why some graduates are not working in their field of study. These booklets, dating back to 1976, are available for perusal at the Russell Resource Library at the College.
Jane Norman College provides financial supports via entrance scholarships for high school students and for mature students in our part-time programs. Scholarships are also available for students going on to more post-secondary education. Contact the Student Services Office for more information.
Students experiencing academic concerns of any kind should contact the Student Services Office for more detailed information about tutoring.
Students have the opportunity to observe and participate in two early learning environments which are housed in the College’s Lorne Street facility. These two centers ensure that, as well as having classroom instruction and field placements, our students have practical on-site interactions with children in a laboratory setting.
