The first group of graduates to start and complete their Bachelor of Education degrees from the Vancouver Island University Cowichan Campus, crossed the stage at their convocation ceremony this month.
The program has only been offered at that campus since September 2014. Graduate MaryDawn MacWatt says it was such a great experience, and is a highlight among many during her time in the program. Her highlights include a special visit to a school on the Sunshine Coast.
She had nothing but praise for her time at VIU.
MacWatt is now a teacher on-call at the Cowichan Valley School District, and says the welcoming environment at VIU Cowichan has been the key to her success.
