I want to introduce to you Aimee Redden. Aimee is a Business Administration student who is completing her five-week work term with the Student Pathways team. She is sharing her student experiences with the high school students she meets across the province. Here is her first blog post on our Get Started events. - Noel
"Is the idea of stepping into an unknown territory starting to scare you? Don’t worry! NSCC is here to provide you with all of the soothing answers to your questions. Come and check out a Get Started Event at the campus you have been accepted into. This is a chance for you to come and see what life at NSCC is really like. This is an opportunity to meet your instructors and classmates in your program, and general information about the campus.
Get Started is geared toward providing students and parents/guardians with information sessions on topics ranging from tuition and student loans, your program schedule, services available on your campus, and general information about your campus. Feel free to take anyone with you for moral support, or even to show off your new school.
As a current NSCC graduate in the Business Administration Program, I participated in my very own Get Started event back in 2010. This was my first time at NSCC and I had lots of questions about my classes, books, and supplies. Taking part in this event and learning about the campus really helped for my “first day jitters”. I met a really nice girl who would be taking the same program as me; it just so happened that we ended up being in the same class, we sat together the first day and have been great friends and colleagues ever since.
Sign up and register for your campus’ Get Started event today! Visit www.nscc.ca/getstarted and get ahead of the game, and feel good about your first day of your college career. "
