EDGE

EDGE is a social, action packed event for new students. Students have the opportunity to make friends and explore the campus in an interactive way. The first day involves setting up with a team and getting to know your peers in preparation for day two. The second day is action-packed with team-building activities and games. This event is designed to help students feel confident in the College community and more comfortable adjusting to college life.

We have created 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.  

If you have any questions about the event, please email EDGE coordinators at: douglascollegeedge@gmail.com
