I’m working on the Coeur de Lion Chronicles this summer for recruitment.  Coeur de Lion Chronicles is a summer series for incoming students that provides everything they need to know for their first year of university.  We’ve made 5 videos so far, check them out here!

The International Studies Symposium: Argentina 2017

One of my absolute favourite thing that the International Studies department hosts is the International Studies Symposium.  I volunteered in my first and second year, and I’m looking forward to volunteering this year too.  I sat down with my friend Lindsey Hutchins to chat about her experience on the symposium team this year.  I highly recommend getting involved with the symposium team at some point in your years at Glendon.  You get to learn so much, and help to make an amazing day run smoothly.  This year, the Argentina Symposium is on Saturday March 11th.

*Contact Information and Social Media will be linked at the end*

Fall Campus Day 2016 Recap

November 6 was Glendon’s Fall Campus Day and I got to shoot footage for this video as I was chatting with prospective students and their families all day!  Fall Campus Day is always one of my favourite days of the year, and it was the day that I decided that I was going to come to Glendon.  If you were able to make it, I hope you had a fabulous day; and if you weren’t able to make it, come by for a campus tour, and catch up on the presentations here.

A Reply to 5 Questions To Ask A Student Ambassador

Last week, fellow eAmbassador Rebecca wrote an awesome post about what questions to ask a student ambassador when you are doing campus tours or visiting open houses.  I thought it would be fun to answer the questions that she posted, so if you can’t make it to an open house, you can have your questions answered; or you can hear more answers to the questions.  So, without further ado, here is my reply to 5 Questions To Ask A Student Ambassador.ouf.jpg

Destination Graduation

It’s September friends! It’s the season of both new beginnings, and endings.  I am beginning my fourth and final year of International Studies, and it’s already bittersweet. Glendon Frosh Week 2016 just ended which means that summer is officially over, and it is time to be back on schedule for another year.  I am looking forward to all fourth year has in store for me.  Motivating me is the idea “Destination Graduation”  – a phrase that that resonated with me when I heard it at the welcome ceremony at Keele Campus on the York wide Orientation Day .  A friend who is on the Pro Tem* board approached me to write a piece with the prompt “Why Are You Here?”  This prompt also inspired this week’s post – I want to reflect on the journey that has brought me to this point in my academic career.

Frosh 101 or How To Have The Best Frosh Ever!

3 more sleeps until Frosh Week 2016! ARE YOU EXCITED!? I sure am!

2016 is going to be my third Glendon/York Frosh but my fourth frosh week because I also did frosh when I was on exchange.  Frosh Week is, hands down, my favourite week of the year.  It is a week for incoming students to get acquainted with all things Glendon College and York University while interacting with peers. as well as faculty and staff, during events that are specially planned for incoming students to transition easily into the University Life.  I hope that you, dear reader, have already purchased your frosh kit for this year.  If you haven’t, there is still time, but hurry because they could sell out at any moment.  If you are participating in frosh, here are a few tips on how to have the best frosh week ever.  And if you are still on the fence about joining, I hope this post will encourage you to join us.

Frosh, Friends and the Glendon Community

One of my favourite things about school is meeting new people. Throughout high school, I was lucky to be a peer mentor as well as the president of the social justice club which allowed me to meet many new students. Being in a small IB class, I was with the same group of students for all my classes and it was uncommon to have new students enroll. Although, in grade 11, we got a “new kid”.  Luckily for our class, Aquino is one of the nicest people ever – he ended up being one of my really good friends. You never know when and where you will meet someone you click with.
