You're invited to dinner with the President next week!

Do you feel engaged — academically and intellectually? Is Douglas helping you reach your academic and career goals? Is the College offering enough opportunities for you to apply classroom learning to realistic scenarios?

You're invited to come chat with Scott McAlpine, President of Douglas, about what you love about Douglas, and what you think the College could be doing better. And while you're giving him some ideas to chew on, you can enjoy some delicious food prepared by the College’s finest chefs.
