ENJOY THE LIFESTYLE OF BARRIE AND REGION The City of Barrie, located on the shores of Lake Simcoe, is surrounded by rich natural scenery, including sandy beaches, scenic hills and ecological parks. The Barrie area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the province of Ontario. Within an hour's driving distance of Toronto, and with a considerably lower cost of living, Barrie is the perfect place for international students to experience cultural immersion and to find opportunities for professional career development in a friendly Canadian community. The Barrie area is Toronto's playground, where getaway weekends and great shopping are just the beginning. It offers everything the big city has but in a smaller, greener, safer, and more peaceful environment. Barrie is one of seven Georgian College campus locations – others are located in Midland, Muskoka (Bracebridge), Orangeville, Orillia, Owen Sound and South Georgian Bay (Collingwood). Every Georgian College campus offers an educational experience in a uniquely Canadian setting. e second I came to school I got involved with GCSA, which is the Georgian College Students' Association and I've had a blast. You can either come to school and study or come to school, study and get involved. Working with GCSA has been one of the most awesome experiences I've had since I came here. I've met so many people and made so many new amazing friends! I honestly believe that one of the best choices I've made in my life so far has been coming to Canada and choosing Georgian College. Its education and environment is great. And leaving my country looking for a better education and a brighter future requires guts but it's a worthwhile experience.
