Some students are lucky enough to have escaped to somewhere warm. Who could blame them? For others, Reading Week is a chance to get caught up on sleep or to watch all 17 seasons of 24 on Netflix. Maybe you’re watching the Olympics day and night. Oh ya, there’s also the opportunity to use the week in the way it was intended: getting caught up on piles of work, and getting ready for final exams.
Don’t look now, but the next six weeks are going to fly by. Most of you will take a week to recover from Reading Week. That takes us into March, which takes us to St. Patrick’s Day. Many students take a week to recover from that. Then the days start to get a bit longer, and the weather gets a bit nicer, and before you know it, we’re into April and procrastination and exams. Then Boom. School year finished.
That was quick.
Are you already planning for the summer? For next September? Congratulations to those of you who are graduating, and all the best with your next steps in the world. For those who are coming back, what does next year look like? New place for you and your friends? Back to residence life for another year? Final year? New program?
You don’t need to plan every step in your life from now until the end of time, but maybe we can help take something off your plate. We’ve watched an awful lot of students graduate, and we’ve tried to make their university experience just a wee bit smoother, by offering them a decent, fair and safe place to live.
We've got a brand new building opening in September that’s closer to your classes than some residence buildings on campus. State of the art, environmentally conscious, and part of the Guelph Campus Co-op, so it’s by students, for students. That’s a big deal. If you haven’t figured out where you’re living next year, there’s no need to worry. Apply to Campus Co-op Commons, and be the first to live in the best new student community in Guelph.
