Best college in Vancouver
Tips: The college is very particular about attendance, so be aware. Location is also great you just have to get down at skytrain station and you will see Douglas College right in front. Accommodation is quite expensive if you go for on-campus. I would suggest students to go for Dougles as it is the best.
