Graduates Spring 2020
Michael Kidd only discovered Contact North | Contact Nord during the last course for his Bachelor of Business Administration program. He wrote his final exam for Nipissing University’s Research in Management course at the Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre in Bracebridge.
Prior to enrolling in the online course, he drove from Bracebridge to North Bay on a daily basis to attend classes. “It was very exhausting,” he explains. “I didn’t know anything about Contact North until another student told me about them.”
Michael is a father of 3 young children and lives a significant distance from a university. He started his degree with Nipissing University on-campus at their Bracebridge location, however, when the satellite campus closed, he transferred to their main campus in North Bay.
“The best was not having to write with 300 other people in a gymnasium. I wrote with only 1 other student in a quiet room,” he shares. Rather than driving for several hours, he spent his time eating well and preparing to write the exam. “It took me 6 minutes to get to the online learning centre!” he says.
Michael graduates in Spring 2020 and plans to open his own business.
