Cheerful Greetings! My name is Maquel Hall and I’m a Sophomore in the Business Administration- International Commerce program. I attend the Niagara on the Lake campus and I am originally from The Bahamas. Just like you all, I was once a new student coming to Canada faced with many new experiences. Luckily, with the help of PAL Mentors, embracing these new experiences can be a bit easier for you. At first I was a very shy student but participating around the college has helped me to break out of that and enjoy my many hobbies which are public speaking (surprising right?), singing, writing, cooking and photography. I would love to be an informative and kind friend to any new student. Therefor if you have any questions or concerns feel free to send me an email as I look forward to connecting with as many of you as possible.

Hello NC friends! Welcome to Niagara College and Welcome to Canada. I am Jerlis From Santa Marta, a small beautiful city in the north of Colombia. I am about to start my third term in the Business General Program in Niagara On The Lake Campus. I arrived to Canada on December last year with my husband and daughter.

Hello, my name is Luis André Moura de Souza e Silva, but you can call just Luis.
I’m from São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, and I am still here because of the borders were closed few days before my travel to Canada.
Unfortunately, I only speak Portuguese but I am improving my English since I started EAP course level 5A at Niagara College. Once I am fluent, I intend to learn French.
I am a Mechanical Engineer and have a bachelor diploma in Law, but almost all my work experience is in the logistic area.
I am married, and have two sons, 15 and 12 years old.
My academic course in Mechanical Engineering will start in September/2020, totally on line. Even though, my family and I would like to be already in Canada to start learning the Canadian culture, meeting my classmates and making friends.
If you need any help, please feel free to contact me, because I would like to repay all the support I’ve been receiving since I joined the Niagara College.

Hi there, I am Valeria and I am currently pursuing my diploma in international business management in Niagara College. I am very happy to assist in inquiries that will help you adapt with the new environment that you are going to live in.
I remember as a new student I had some difficulties adapting to the online learning and accessing an online platform to learn all about registration, timetables, courses, assignments, deadline, assignment submission and much more regarding Niagara region economy, housing, transportation and leisure.
The times that we are going through are really hard and require an additional attention and support to our peers. No one better than a student who has gone through the process before can’t help a new student better, because they are going through the same challenges as we did in our beginnings.
Feel free to contact me, and I am more than glad to help you smooth your transition in the Canadian experience!

Hello! First of all, I’d like to welcome the new Niagara College Students!
My name is Santiago but you can call me Santi!
I was born in Mexico and I know two languages; Spanish and English. I am currently enrolled in the Photonics Engineering Technology program at the Welland campus.
I consider myself as a friendly guy with a considerably high passion in science and technology (note why I chose the photonics program). I also really like listening to music and to sometimes perform along with it instrumentally! I also like to do sports, but my favourite sport is definitely Tennis. I am not a party guy (believe it or not), I’d rather stay at home doing something I like or playing some video games!
I will be very happy to answer to any of the questions that you may have!
