On Tuesday November 14, St. Joes welcomed a Lakehead University representative to talk about what the school has to offer. Grade 12s interested in attending the university were called to the conference room at 1:30 for a presentation lead by a former student.
During the presentation, students were told what Lakehead has to offer in relation to programs, courses, along with how signing up and how university/college will work. Going in depth to explain programs that the students could be signing up for.
“I knew going to grade 12 that I wanted to go to university but I didn’t really know what it would be like,” Says Samantha Daynes, a student who attended the presentation. “The presentation was very informative and it definitely helps me with the big choice of which universities to apply for.”
But with a lower than usual turn up, as a whole it lasted approximately half an hour. This time was spent looking through and explaining the view book, along with questions and acquired tips.
For example, getting to know the people who work at the school, so you get on their ‘radar’ and when you ask for something or for help, they know who you are.
“I would highly recommend going to any college/university presentations available because although you may be able to get the information online and through a view book, listening to a former student talk about all the reasons they love their school is really helpful.”
So, if you are a grade 12 student, wondering about college/university and what choices there are, or a grade 11 student curious about next year, check the St. Joseph’s announcements or website for post secondary schooling presentations.
