Niagara receives $1M from Simplii to invest in student recreation, engagement opportunities


Niagara College has received $1M from Simplii Financial, which will be invested in recreation and engagement opportunities for students. This gift is part of an ongoing collaboration between Niagara and Simplii. The funds will be used to develop and/or support a new extramural cricket program; additional financial supports for student athletes; enhancements to Niagara’s Broadcasting: Radio, Television and Film program; orientation fairs; and on-campus multi-cultural events. In recognition of Simplii’s investment, the Niagara College Athletic Centre will be renamed the Simplii Financial Athletic Centre. “Simplii’s generous support gives us a leg up in providing academic and co-curricular experiences that set our students up for success in work and in life,” said Niagara President Sean Kennedy.
