Georgian College sends Air Grizzly to the sky to deliver acceptance letters for three tech-minded students

Soon-to-be college students in Orillia, Gilford, Newmarket receiving their acceptance letter via drone

Georgian College found a unique and fitting way to let some potential future grads they’ve been accepted to one of the college’s high-tech programs.

Air Grizzly, the acceptance offer delivering drone.

Three local applicants found out they were accepted into the college’s new Electromechanical Engineering Technology – Mechatronics three-year diploma program this fall via a letter delivered by drone. Marco D’Agnillo of Orillia, Ryan Little of Gilford, and Daniel Podgorny of Newmarket were recipients of an Air Grizzly delivery and plan on attending in September.

Marco was happy to receive his Georgian acceptance offer – and especially via drone. “I love technology and futuristic kind of stuff, and I’m super pumped about using robots at Georgian,” he said. “I know Georgian also has a good reputation and it’s local.”

“The past year has been strange and challenging for all of us, so we wanted to do something fun and unique for some of our newest Georgian Grizzlies by delivering their acceptance offers by drone,” said Cindy Mutchler, Georgian’s Registrar. “We chose three applicants to our new Mechatronics program and delivered the special packages to their doorsteps – to brighten their day, and help create the first of many unforgettable experiences at Georgian.”

While these three soon-to-be college students received their letters the futuristic way, the rest should continue to check their mailboxes.
