VCC road trip: Recruiters Q&A

Posted on September 18, 2018

Have you met our recruiters? Every fall, representatives from dozens of B.C.’s post-secondary institutions hit the road, visiting high schools and community organizations across the province. For many students, these visits are key opportunities to learn about their post-secondary options, gather valuable information, and ask questions. 

This year, we’ll be checking in with our Vancouver Community College (VCC) recruiters and sharing photos using the hashtag #VCCRoadTrip. Watch for us in your community and follow @myVCC on Twitter to stay in the loop.

Start here by getting to know Leigh and Danielle, VCC’s representatives on the road:

What’s your favourite place in Canada?
The North Beach of Haida Gwaii, looking over to Alaska.

What’s the best road trip song of all time?
Never Going Back Again by Fleetwood Mac (played twice in a row because it’s so short!)

Where is the farthest place you’ve ever travelled?
Tanzania. I spent my 21st birthday on a camping safari, and since we had no cake, my friends filled a bucket with sand and stuck the candles in that instead.

What are you most excited about this school year?
I’m excited to meet all the high school students of the Lower Mainland! I’m also looking forward to expanding our reach and going to schools we’ve never visited before.

What is one thing that students should ask when they meet you?
Students should ask about more than admission requirements. That information is readily available on the website. I’d love to share what makes each program special and perhaps connect them with others at VCC for further exploration as they navigate their post-secondary options.

What’s your favourite place in Canada?
Newfoundland. My home province and the most beautiful place in the world.

What’s the best road trip song of all time?
Der Kommissar by After The Fire. It just gets me stoked.

Where is the farthest place you’ve ever travelled?
When I moved from Newfoundland to British Columbia, I drove through Canada and the U.S. That was the farthest road trip I’ve ever taken. There are so many incredible sights to see in North America.

What are you most excited about this school year?
Visiting high schools on the Sunshine Coast and parts of Vancouver Island that we have not attended in the past. I love introducing students to all the excellent programs and services that VCC offers.

What is one thing that students should ask when they meet you?
Ask about the awesome things that our current students and grads are doing. Our programming goes way beyond obtaining a degree or diploma.
