Why St. Clair College - Chatham
- Campus life: There are lots of great things happening on campus! From pubs and fundraisers to events and sports teams, St. Clair College is totally committed to providing students with a well rounded campus experience. One great way to dive right into the "college experience" is to join an Student Representative Council/Thames Students Incorporated-supported club. There are over two dozen different clubs that students can get involved with, all academically based. At the beginning of each semester, the SRC/TSI ratifies the clubs, provides them with some start-up cash, and then they pretty much run themselves. The SRC/TSI lends the clubs its barbeque to sell hot dogs and burgers at lunch as a way to raise funds. Some clubs raise the money to compete in competitions, some to take trips to their future work environments, and some attend club-specific conferences.
- Athletics: Students will be thrilled with the College's SportsPlex facility in Windsor and the HealthPlex facility in Chatham. They both feature large gymnasiums, fitness centres, walking tracks, workout studios, classrooms and more! Windsor campus is home to the varsity athletics teams – the Saints.
