My plans for this summer include a hearty diet of wakeboarding, golf and Blue Jays baseball. Oh and work, lots of work. Summer used to be a time for being care-free and frolicking in the sun with friends. Now for many students, it’s a time devoted to working and making money.
We talked to Humber and Guelph-Humber students to hear about their exciting plans for summer ’17.
Emma, General Arts & Sciences, Humber College
“Work, i’m a canoe trip guide at a camp, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Tristan, Media Studies, Guelph-Humber
“I’m going to be working as a photographer for Lavelle Night Club downtown. I also have plans to go to L.A to work on my professional portfolio, and I’m going to doing an internship. So it’s a lot of work, but I enjoy it.”
Lauryn, Baking & Pastry Arts Management, Humber College
“I want to go to Wonderland! I run around like a little kid there.”
Fariya, Journalism, Humber College
“It’s going to be a busy summer for me! In my program, we have a course where we are in the North Campus newsroom working on a news broadcast. We also have a 6 week internship, but other than that I’ll be working part time for an insurance company. I’m going to try and get away to relax but I don’t know where yet.”
Carl, General Arts & Sciences, Humber College
“When I’m not working, just going out downtown with friends. Patio season is here!”
Tyler, Civil Engineering Technology, Humber College
“Hopefully I’ll be celebrating a Leafs Stanley Cup! I’m a sports guy, so just getting outdoors as much as I can is the plan.”
Brandon, Journalism, Humber College
“Tons of concerts my man, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., Chris Stapleton, Margo Price, going to be a good one.”
Adriane, General Arts & Sciences, Humber College
“Working all summer unfortunately, gotta make some money.”
Pedro, Sports Management, Humber College
“I’m a Toronto F.C. season ticket holder, so this summer I plan on seeing Giovinco and the boys win the MLS Championship.”
