Some may call it a coincidence and while others call it fate. But whatever it was, it brought two students together. They were the only attendees of the online make-up session for LaunchBox…

It’s proven that the students most satisfied with their Cegep experience are the ones most involved in the school community. You are a student. You are presented…
