The EDGE 2018! 

Engage. Discover. Grow. Express

You may be wondering what exactly "The EDGE" is... well, it's a 3 day social stimulating, action-packed event for our first year students! 

New students will be assigned to a team that is led by two senior students. You and your team will discover areas of the college while participating in ice-breakers, recreation activities, playing life-sized board games and team-builder challenges; just to name a few! 

This event is meant to foster new relationships, welcome you to student life, build confidence and help you feel more connected to the Douglas College community! 

The EDGE is going to happen September 13 - 15!
  • Thursday, September 13th / 5:00pm - 8:30pm
  • Friday, September 14th / 4:00pm - 9:30pm (social to follow until midnight)
  • Saturday, September 15th / 11:00am - 4:00pm

Registration only available at the sign-in table, located at the New West campus, 4th floor in front of the DSU lounge (Thursday, Sept 13, 5pm)


If you've already participated in The EDGE and want to provide an awesome and memorable experience for our new first year students, volunteer positions are available. These include:

  • Team Leaders
  • Station Leaders
  • Greeters and General Help

Volunteer applications open every May, with interviews taking place in July. 

We look forward to seeing you at The EDGE, and can't wait to share this experience with you!

We have created The EDGE as an inclusive event; modifications and accommodations are available. We want everyone to come out and have a blast, so we ask that at the time of registration you let us know how we can make your experience more comfortable and barrier-free.
