"The environment is the most important and most precious resource that we have. We as humans have made a great deal of mistakes, and among them is treating the earth, the air and the waters as if they were disposable. We at Green Earth are motivated to spreading as much awareness as we can about this dire issue, mobilizing students to take action against policies that would seek to threaten that precious asset and supporting groups who share our views and seek to make the world a better place for us all. Fighting for the environment for 51 years and counting."
"Chess Club is our name, boards are our game. The full name of our club is the Strict Information Board Game Club, however most simply call it the Chess Club. We are open to and welcome everyone to come in, take a seat, and challenge one of us to Chess, or a series of other board games. Be warned, however... We won't go easy on you."
People For People
"People for People is a club that is designed to help the homeless community around Dawson college. We believe in helping the community by giving back to those in need. During the Christmas season, we raise money in order to prepare bags full of food and necessities to hand out to the homeless individuals around the Dawson campus. We also hold other fundraisers during the semester, like the Boba tea fundraiser."
"Performing arts is as old as civilization itself, and likely even older. It's an integral part of how we communicate, how we tell stories, and how culture develops. Such an integral part of who we are as a people should be something that everyone gets to participate in, and that's where we come in. Spotlight is a free, inclusive and inviting space where students can express themselves without fear of judgement and where the serious artists, shy beginners, and curious observers can come together and create something beautiful."
