Centered on the theme of leadership, the STAY Smart program is designed to keep CSD students engaged and connected throughout the school year through a series of social events, workshops, and skill building sessions. STAY Smart encourages students to view their time at Centennial not as a destination, but as a route marker on the path to a successful life and career.
STAY Smart events are open to any student of Centennial College registered with the Centre for Students with Disabilities.
