Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Chargers golf program paused

VICTORIA, B.C. – Camosun College President Sherri Bell issued the following statement today following the Pacific Western Athletic Association (PACWEST) announcement that golf will not be returning for the foreseeable future as one of the conference

“The cancellation by PACWEST of competitive golf because there were only two teams left in B.C., one being Camosun, is hardest on our student-athletes. Our golf student-athletes are extremely talented, passionate and committed members of the Chargers family.

“The entire college community is proud of accomplishments of our golf student-athletes including our three national championships and eight provincial championships. We understand the disappointment of not being able to have a Camosun golf program and we will be working with these students to ensure they receive the assistance needed to support them through their academic journey at Camosun.”

For students who are in need of support, Camosun offers services in counselling, advising and financial aid.
