I found this place with the help of my Consultant. Also, I've been searching for this place since I was in my home country and get in love with the place, this is the warmest weather in B.C. and it's beautiful. I'm hoping and praying to stay here for good. It's a good place to retire, wishing my family to bring here too. Lots of opportunities and being in love with nature helps.
The course curriculum was okay.
It was local. I didn't have to travel in order to upgrade my courses was the main appeal. Plus I already knew a lot of the staff and students at the college which was appealing. There are not a lot of choices in my area.
It's a very easy and affordable way to further your high school education in order to continue your education to either college or university. The curriculum covers everything I need to continue into my first year of science.
