Get Involved This Week: October 20-25

Get Involved

The Get Involved Co-Curricular Record Portal showcases the many opportunities for students to get involved while at Niagara College. Any NC area can post student activities or opportunities through the portal. When logged in to the portal, students see a virtual flyer board featuring posters of the on and off campus CCR opportunities and activities.

Through the Get Involved Co-Curricular Record portal, which is administered by the Centre for Student Engagement and Leadership, students are able to access and populate their Co-Curricular Record (CCR) which is an official Niagara College document.

Every Monday, the Get Involved NC newsletter is sent out to everyone registered on the portal through the internal messaging feature. This message can be sent through to their preferred email address if students opt in to receive portal messaging this way. The Get Involved NC newsletter goes out at the beginning of each week and highlights the opportunities and events occurring that week, in addition to the volunteer opportunities that are currently open for sign up.

If you have opportunities that you would like to be featured on the flyer board and are unsure of how to proceed, please contact the Get Involved – CCR Coordinator, Rox Chwaluk at

Here is a quick snapshot of some of the exciting events and activities taking place over the next week! Check the flyer board for full details.
