We believe no other program in the province offers the same personal and coach-based education. But don't take our word for it, here's what one of our current students, Chantal Lauzon, has to say:

"The teachers at SLC make all the difference. They know us all personally, meet us regularly to keep us on track, and make sure we have the most job-ready Advertising skills. They have personally helped me secure both of my work placements, based on areas that most interest ME. They have already offered to help me find a job after I graduate. Even when I didn't know exactly what area of Advertising to pursue, they counselled me on that. I feel they are always there for me."

Relationships Matter.

Other ways we foster relationships:

  • Every student receives in upper year mentor for guidance, with a chance for professional mentors in upper years;
  • Industry professionals are brought into the classroom EVERY semester as clients and guest speakers, and we make introductions for students in their areas of interest;
  • Students have the chance to reverse-interview people working in areas they are considering for employment;
  • Students work closely in teams, and are taught skills for working through conflict;
  • Community networking events are promoted and made accessible each semester;
  • Students develop relationships with local and area businesses in the upper-year Advertising Agency work setting.
