Student Centre Food Court

Hosted by the Students

Guest Speakers include:

  • Toronto Mayor David Miller

  • and John Kapageridis, president of the Scarborough College Athletics Association (SCAA).


The speakers will talk about the proposed athletic facility and its impact on, and benefits to, student life and the broader community. The event has been organized by two student groups, the SCSU and the SCAA. Students have organized the event to provide more details about the creation of a new athletics and recreation complex and the upcoming referendum (March 17 to 19) on a student levy.

The proposal calls for a state-of-the-art athletic facility with two Olympic-sized, 52-metre swimming pools, a 10-metre diving tank, multipurpose gymnasiums, a running track, racquet courts, and fitness and training areas.

Refreshments will be served at the town hall meeting. For more details about the athletics complex and upcoming referendum, click here.
