Have fun, get involved with Douglife

Want to discover the other half of the college experience? Douglife is your one-stop shop for activities outside of class like beach volleyball tournies, Frosh, global internships, volunteering and more. Douglife also supports student clubs and organizations, student leadership and wellness programs.

We offer you fitness classes in yoga, kick boxing, core strength, basic step, and Zumba. The weight room is open from 8am-8pm Monday to Thursday, and 8am-4:30pm on Friday.

Volunteer opportunities exist on and off campus. On-campus opportunities include helping run International Day and other events, while off-campus opportunities exist through a variety of organizations like the Red Cross and PoCoMo Youth Services.

Some of the clubs that exist on campus are the Running Club, the Outdoors Club, the Social Justice Club, the Business Association and the International Association. Get the complete list on the Douglife website.

Why get involved?

  • Getting involved in co-curricular activities gives you the chance to meet new people with similar interests. In other words, make new friends and have fun doing it.
  • Physical activity can have a strong, positive impact on mood, and social interaction can boost cognitive performance! 

So whether you want to join a sports team, go to the big game on Friday night, intern in Zambia or create a club, Douglife is the place you need to be. Check us out at douglife.ca.
