Why you chose King’s:
I chose King’s because of the initial feeling of acceptance and community at the fall open house event. I knew walking through the doors and meeting an ambassador that I wanted to come to this school no matter what! I also came to King’s because of the small classroom sizes. I learn best when I’m in a smaller group setting and you really get to experience that at King’s.
What are your post-graduate plans?
As someone who is passionate about education I’ve wanted to pursue a career in teaching for as long as I can remember. I am looking forward to going into the education after-degree program once I graduate my undergrad degree in hopes to become a junior high teacher.
Favourite thing to do on campus?
My favourite thing to do on-campus would either be having coffee in the Level with a friend or Zumba club!
Favourite thing to do off campus?
When I’m off campus I like to either hangout with friends or watch Netflix at my apartment.
What did you wish you knew coming into university?
I wish I knew time management! You are more independent in university compared to high school and it’s up to you to make sure you get everything done. Being a procrastinator, it was hard to adapt at first.
Advice for new students?
My advice would be to get involved! There is so much on-campus for all students to be a part of. Whether it’s a club, the ambassador program, athletics or a small group, there is something for everyone! The great thing is if there isn’t anything that interests you, you are able to start up a club through the students association.
