Twelve articles make up the magazine’s content. “This is a group that knew how to help each other and push each other up when necessary,” said Marie-Andre Goodbot, Natural Sciences Program Coordinator. Although our graduates started CEGEP at home, they have adapted particularly well to studies in the context of the pandemic. »
To this end, Marc Remillard and Francine Bellaire, General Manager and Director of Studies respectively, highlight the students’ perseverance and resilience. They also noted the importance of trusting each other in their academic and professional lives.
