  1. My professor showed this to me in one of my first lecture classes. What is your opinion of this? Do you think it is possible to achieve all three? Lets discuss :)
  2. Going to university can be scary and stressful especially going as a high school graduate. Just want to share some tips on how to ease the transitioning phase so it doesn't impact you as much: - PLEASE GO TO ORIENTATION WEEK. This is extremely important for you as this is the chance for you to get to know your faculty members, get to know your campus, make friends at the early stage and most importantly connect with the community. I did not go to my university's orientation week and I regret this decision even till this day. - PLEASE SEEK ACADEMIC HELP IF NEEDED. I did not understan
  3. I am a current student in the Police Foundations program at Sheridan. I just want to be a point of contact for anyone that is considering a career in this direction but isn't sure yet. If you have law enforcement related questions, or just want my opinion on something (related to this topic), please ask! Please leave any questions or comments you have
  4. Due to the rise of MOOC ( massive open online courses), I just have a few thoughts on it especially for students. Many MOOC services such as coursera or edx offers courses that you can audit for free and pay (around 70$) to get a certificate. I recommend anyone to take these courses as they are taught by qualified university professors. These classes you can study at during your own pace, skip to certain topics you want to cover specifically and engage with others via the forum section of the courses. If you want to take a course for your own interests or just for fun, I recommend them as well
  5. I just want to make a list of what first years need to know or should expect, obviously this does not apply to every university and every program but just generally from most: - Professors generally don't care about first year students, won't bother to remember your name ( unless you do really well in a way) - You will be lost in the campus during your first few weeks so get to your lecture classes early - Books are expensive -Some TAs are good while others have no idea what they are saying - Exams and tests are WAY HARDER than high school - Be ready to memorize,

  7. I just want to share a little bit of experience with volunteering. I feel that it is a great way to gain skills and grow connections. Volunteering as a "volunteer coordinator" is a great leadership role for many students in high school or just starting off with post-secondary. Since a paid coordinator position usually requires a bachelor and around 5 years of experience in the field, most students don't have that yet. With a volunteering coordinator position, there are less requirements. You gain leadership skills from leading a team and organizing events as well as meeting some of the higher
  8. Hi Everyone! So I started off going to McMaster University thinking of going into humanities/social science. However, due to unable to adapt to uni life, I was miserable for a whole year. I didn't know much about college since most of my friends chose to go to university and decide to peruse popular fields these days such as medicine, engineering and IT. I didn't really know what to do as I did extremely poorly in the first year and was sure that I did not want to stay for another year, so I decided to give college a try. I have to say that this was one of the best decisions I ever made i
