There is go­ing to be a new look for the Hope Col­lege as it moves down­town.

To Hope Col­lege will be mov­ing 106 3rd Av­enue East, the for­mer site of Just You & I. Dave Wat­son, Chief Ed­u­ca­tion Of­fi­cer says the new lo­ca­tion is a pos­i­tive step for the col­lege.

“We like that it’s down­town, it gives us more vis­i­bil­ity and it is bet­ter for mo­bil­ity,” said Wat­son. “There are no stairs so if we get a stu­dent with mo­bil­ity is­sues, we could bet­ter serve them.

He adds that they wanted to get closer to MH En­ter­prises. He says many of the peo­ple we are work­ing with are tran- sitional and this al­lows the two agen­cies to work more closely. Classes at Hope Col­lege com­mence on Tues­day, Septem­ber 5. They are con­tin­u­ing to of­fer its core pro­grams which in­clude its busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion and tourism diplo­mas. It also of­fers health stud­ies, in­clud­ing Nu­tri­tion, Ex­er­cise and Well­ness, and Herbal Health. It is con­tin­u­ing to of­fer its two year di­ploma in Jus­tice Stud­ies and Massage.

“We are try­ing to get the Massage Ther­apy hands on train­ing started in Jan­uary,” he said.

They have seen a bit of a jump in its en­roll­ment so far. Last year the col­lege had 11 stu­dents. This year they are pro­ject­ing to have an en­roll­ment of 15.
