Niagara College adds new chapters to #myNCstory

Niagara College has released 12 new student-centred videos that build on the college’s brand and tell captivating stories of how ‘Applied Dreams’ come true.

The new videos are part of a social media campaign that the college launched last fall with 26 videos using the #myNCstory hashtag. The hashtag creates a searchable link to the videos across different social media platforms making it easier for students staff alumni and the public to view and share their own NC stories.

“The videos are an effective tool for helping students understand the full range of benefits and experiences that come with Niagara College’s unique approach to applied education. These are the stories that define our tagline of ‘Applied Dreams’” said Dorita Pentesco the college’s director of marketing and recruitment “The videos also give the public an inside look at Niagara College life and allow us to share with the public our student and graduate success stories which are the heart of Niagara College.”

All of the videos are posted on YouTube and myncstory.com and promoted via QR codes on marketing materials and recruitment publications.
