Hey Condors!

Congrats on making it through a full year at Conestoga College, and congrats for all winter intake students on getting through your first semester! Before it wraps up and comes to a close, there are a couple of major announcements and events still to come to end the year/semester on a high note. Here they are:

Sunny with CSI Contest

We’re approaching sunglasses season…so in light of that (no pun intended) we have a Sunny with CSI contest! Come see us at your campus events in the next week and grab yourself a pair of our sunglasses that come in various colours (like blue, green, purple, red and pink). Attached to the sunglasses you’ll see a flyer informing you on our contest! If you take a selfie with the glasses, then upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag: #SunnyWithCSI. By doing that, you’ll get a chance to win a $100 Rogers gift card (which you can use to buy Blue Jays tickets, in-store purchases, or to pay bills); a $50 VISA gift card; or a $25 dining gift card! If you have any questions about contest details or the prizes, email your Communications Assistants:
