‘Our Favourite Recipes’ Cookbook Now On Sale

Proceeds go to RS McLaughlin Cancer Centre in memory of Fleming faculty member Linda Elias

 

As part of their first service learning initiative, students in the Health Information Management (HIM) are giving back to the community by publishing ‘Our Favourite Recipes’ cookbook. The cookbook sells for $10 with all proceeds being donated to the RS McLaughlin Cancer Centre in memory of HIM program faculty member Linda Elias.

‘Our Favourite Recipes’ offers a food lover’s collection of tasty recipes submitted by Fleming students, faculty, alumni, and advisory committee members. Helpful hints and tips throughout the pages of the book have been provided by Fleming’s Culinary and Fleming Fitness and Health Promotion program students. The cookbook was fully supported by many staff at Fleming College who offered their services to help complete the ‘Our Favourite Recipes’ project, including printing and graphic design. A key motivator behind the project is Health Information Management Program Coordinator Paula Weisflock.

The recipe book project was launched as a way for students to volunteer their time, on top of their demanding course workload, to support a cause in the community. During the initial stage, HIM volunteers couldn’t decide on a cause. It wasn’t until a strong supporter of the project and a full-time faculty member of the HIM program was diagnosed with terminal cancer that students found a cause. Linda Elias, was touched to learn that the book would be dedicated to her and requested that the proceeds go to RS McLaughlin Cancer Centre – Palliative Care Unit based on the wonderful care she was receiving. Although Linda was able to include some of her own favourite recipes, she passed away prior to the book being finished.

The financial goal for this project is to raise $5,000 through 500 copies at $10 each. With many books sold prior to publication, volunteers for ‘Our Favourite Recipes’ hope to sell many more to those looking for holiday gift ideas and to those in need of a good cookbook in their kitchen.

Fleming Business Students Suit Up for Success

In keeping with Fleming College’s focus on preparing students for the workplace both academically and practically, senior Marketing students are kicking it up a notch with something called Formal Friday’s.
Occurring every Friday in the School of Business, Trades and Technology, students are suiting up in professional business attire to distinguish themselves from students in other Fleming programs.

The idea for Formal Friday’s was sparked by third year Business-Marketing student Mitch DesRoches.

“On any given day on campus you see students in the paramedic, nursing and culinary programs distinctively dressed as they represent their fields. I wanted business students represented too.” stated DesRoches. “With Casual Friday’s accepted in many workplaces, I believed that Formal Friday’s was a perfect fit.”

DesRoches encouraged his classmates to dress like professional business people every Friday not only to prepare themselves for the real work world, but to create awareness that Business students take pride in their program.

Following DesRoches’ lead, fellow marketing students are taking up the challenge and making a strong and impressive visual statement on campus. The number of students taking part in Formal Friday’s continues to increase.

Faculty in Fleming’s School of Business, Trades and Technology welcome the student initiative and deem it as an excellent business decision.

“We teach students that an overall professional appearance is an integral part of business success,” stated School of Business Instructor Raymond Yip Choy. “To know that our students value the importance of professionalism and initiate their own leadership opportunities is very rewarding.”

 Mr. Yip Choy also added that dressing for success could make a big difference in their careers. When his students are dressed up in business attire they exude more confidence. They tend to improve their posture, body language and demeanor, all aspects that reflect on a positive first impression.

Starting in the first semester of Fleming’s Business program, students are required to take part in extensive group work and make project presentations. They are encouraged to be completely in-character when they present their projects and that includes professional attire.

Fleming College Launches New Website

Fleming College is pleased to announce the launch of their newly redesigned website, one that is much more than just a fresh, new look.

The new website features a clean visual appearance, simple navigation, and a wealth of information on admissions, programs and courses, student life, news and events, and services at Fleming College. A growing library of Fleming video clips showcases the College’s distinctive programs, campuses, and student success. The site is also built on a new technical platform that allows greater capability, flexibility and capacity for future applications.

“We’ve made a dramatic improvement on the look and navigation of the website,” stated Director of Marketing Drew Van Parys. “A clean and intuitive website is vital to maintain our competitive position and strengthen interest in Fleming’s unique academic programs.”

As the college’s most important marketing tool, the website is many people’s first impression of Fleming College.  The new site has over 2,000 pages and averages more that 6,500 visits per day. So far in 2011, the site has had 2,000,000 site visits and almost 5,000,000 page views from users in 199 countries. Over the past two years, traffic has grown approximately 25%.

One of the biggest changes to the website is its tie to social media. As more people connect through online social networks, the need to incorporate links to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube became a high priority objective for this project. Social communication tools increase the number of people that Fleming can reach and it is an important aspect that will help the College direct visitors to their site.

The new website was produced entirely in-house by Fleming’s marketing and IT staff. College employees including web developers, graphic designers, marketing consultants, information technology consultants, administrators and support staff all provided design, content and technical input.

“The team excelled at developing and executing this challenging project,” said Van Parys. “Their innovative ideas and solutions made this happen. Of course the site will continue to evolve, but I invite everyone to take a look at what our team has accomplished.”

Feedback is welcomed by the College’s web design team, you can send comments to webfeedback@flemingc.on.ca.

Fleming College Enrolment Tops 6,000 Students

Student enrolment at Fleming College remains strong with 6,001 students registered for the 2011 fall semester, just shy of last year’s record enrolment of 6,058 students.

“We are very pleased to welcome our new students and we appreciate that they have chosen Fleming College as part of their path to success,” said President Tony Tilly. “Strong enrolment correlates with the success of our new academic programs, our ongoing marketing and recruiting efforts across our local region and the GTA, as well as our exciting new initiatives targeting the international student market.”

Through new initiatives in India, Fleming has experienced strong growth in the number of International students at the college. With more than 50 new International students enrolled in the fall semester, Fleming anticipates another strong cohort to arrive for the January 2012 semester. The College continues to identify new International opportunities to increase enrolment.

Over the past five years, total full-time enrolment at Fleming has grown by approximately 1,000 students, an increase of 20 percent. Total enrolment in 2010 increased five percent over 2009.
Fleming College attributes part of the strong enrolment results to its ongoing commitment to the introduction of new academic programs such as Child and Youth Worker, Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Pharmacy Technician and Community Integration Through Cooperative Education. Growing demand for skilled workers in the environmental sector and social and community services sectors has influenced high student enrolment in the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences and the School of Law, Justice and Community Services. In addition, enrolment in arts programs at the Haliburton School of The Arts continues to grow, with a 25 percent increase of the past four years.

Located in the heart of Central Ontario, Fleming College has campuses in Peterborough, Lindsay, Cobourg and Haliburton. Named for famous Canadian inventor and engineer Sir Sandford Fleming, the college features more than 100 full-time programs in Business and Technology, Continuing Education and Skilled Trades, Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, Fine Arts, Education, Health and Wellness, and Law, Justice and Community Services. Fleming College has more than 6,000 full-time and 10,000 part-time students and 60,000 alumni.
