How are Humber and Guelph Humber students spending their holiday breaks?

by Jamie Brackpool and Kayzia Boilard

The holiday break is almost upon us, and students are anxiously awaiting some well-deserved time off.

During the break, some will be focused on catching up on sleep after exams, and others will have filled their schedules with fun activities. We asked our Humber and Guelph-Humber students what they have planned.

Here’s what we found out:

Swati Mohan

Marketing Management, 1st year – Lakeshore
“I think I am going to stay at home, and walk around and explore new places. I am new to Canada so I just want to explore places.”

Poulomi Guha

Marketing Management, 1st year – Lakeshore
“My aunt is going to come back [to Canada]. She is in India right now but she stays in Scarborough, so I’m going to visit her for two weeks. She makes amazing turkey, so I’m going to eat turkey for the first time. I am also in Canada for the first time, so I will likely roam around with Swati and explore places.”
