Ice cream was served at the May 14 gathering in front of one of the recently purchased buildings on Somerset East which this fall will start housing students of Nunavut Sivuniksavut, a college located on Rideau Street. This unique college program offers certificate programs to Inuit youth in Inuit Studies under the auspices of Algonquin College. In addition to their courses, by living away from home and now together in their own college residence, students develop life skills needed to prepare for entry into the workforce back home and for further post-secondary studies. — Betsy Mann
