Brock University welcomed 127 students when it first opened its doors in September 1964. The famous Schmon tower was completed in 1966 and faculties began to move to this location from a refurbished refrigeration factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines. Today more than 19,000 students attend the school, proudly calling themselves Brock Badgers.
In September 1967, Niagara College’s Welland Campus opened its doors to 450 students and opened its Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus in 1998. Today, Niagara College currently has over 10,000 full-time students. Combined, these two institutions welcome approximately 30,000 students to the region annually.
Brock University continues to prepare for a significant return to on-campus and has launched a Fall 2021 website Fall term @Brock (brocku.ca), that includes information for current and prospective students. The website will be updated regularly to reflect the changing conditions of the pandemic in the months ahead, as well as the evolution of public health measures.
According to their website, Brock University students will likely be offered a mix of on-campus instruction, complemented with online and hybrid delivery elements.
Also and in accordance with the Niagara College website, the College will see a significant increase in on-campus learning and activity when Fall term classes begin in September and will continue with its planned academic delivery schedule announced on June 23.
We look forward to welcoming back students from Brock University and Niagara College. We've missed seeing your smiling faces at our tables!
