Oulton College Celebrates 60th Anniversary in 2016

 

MONCTON, NB – Since 1956, Oulton College has been built on a tradition of relevance and excellence. Founded by Gordon A. Oulton as Oulton’s Business College, Oulton is now gearing up to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Today, the College offers career relevant education to over 700 students annually.

 

“Oulton’s early success was due to the College’s ability to connect education and students to the demands of employers,” says Darcie Robichaud, College President. “We are committed to that same philosophy today. Every program offered is focused on meeting the demands of our employers, ensuring our students are able to find gainful employment after graduating.”

In 2012 the College moved to its state-of-the-art campus at 4 Flanders Court. “In addition to our dental clinic at 5 Pacific Ave, our Flanders Court campus offers students a modern learning environment that simulates their future work environments,” says Robichaud.

The College now offers 22 programs in the fields of Health Science, Business, Human Services and Information Technology.  “We offer students a wide selection of career options,” says Robichaud. “We are proud to offer training for careers such as Optician, where we are Atlantic Canada’s only in-class dual licensed Optician program. Students can really find their dream career at Oulton.”

In addition to quality education, Oulton also offers students a strong student community. “The second you walk onto campus, you can tell that our community is energized by our student body,” Says Janice Rice, Acting Director of Student Services. “We offer a number of community volunteer activities each year, including opportunities to volunteer at local events, festivals and not-for-profit organizations. These types of opportunities help create an engaged student and a successful graduate.”

Staying connected with government organizations and industry leaders has also been key to the College’s success. “Each faculty is connected to their industry,” says Janelle Bourgeois, Director of Organizational Performance. “Our team spends a great deal of time meeting with various businesses and government organizations to ensure that our curriculum is meeting the demands of employers. These relationships help make sure that our students are learning the most important skills, which in turn connect them to job opportunities and future successes.”

“I feel that Oulton provides a truly unique learning environment that not only allows the students to grow as professional individuals but also helps to grow the surrounding community with a skilled workforce,” says Jared Kaye, President of the Oulton Students’ Council. “I wanted to define my leadership abilities as well as my business knowledge and Oulton has provided me with the opportunities to make both happen.”

To celebrate the College’s 60th anniversary, Oulton launched an international outreach campaign with a goal of building a school in Haiti. To date, the College has worked with the local orphanage to complete the main structure. The next steps will involve installing doors, utilities and furnishing the building.

The College has planned a number of other events in 2016 to celebrate. To kick things off, a community engagement event titled “Hold My Hand – Creating An Engaged Community” will be held on February 18th at 8:30AM at the Wesleyan Celebration Centre in Moncton. The event will feature keynote speaker Joe Grondin. Donations for the Haiti project will be accepted at the door and the event is open to members of the community. For additional details, call 1-888-757-2020 ext 118 or visit www.oultoncollege.com.

“I am so proud of what our students, staff and faculty accomplish each year,” says Robichaud. “The future looks good for our community and I am excited to work with many more students as they start their new careers.”
