New College Impact

I was in the double cohort. Many students were randomly placed in my first year of school, myself included, so I had virtually no ties to New College. The majority of my courses and education happened via the Cinema Studies program offered out of Innis College and the English Literature program offered out of Victoria College.

“It’s easy to make up your mind regarding what you’re going to study long before you even attend university. I made my choices that way at first but stayed open to the idea of changing my mind halfway through. I changed minors several times and don’t regret it. I took more credits than I needed to in the end, but gained a lot of experience in the different subject matter I studied along the way as a result.

“The university is a diverse place with diverse people. Take advantage of that by learning from those around you and engaging in the immense variety of opportunities. Whatever you do, do not just stay in your room and study; the world requires you to do much more than describe the Theory of Relativity or the stylistic prose of Mark Twain.”

“Every day, try to talk to someone who is very different from you. Ask open questions and listen to understand, not just to hear. You will learn much more from people’s stories than any textbook. (But also read your textbook… before class).”
