Students tell us their summer break plans

by Scott Hokkanen

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.

“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.”

“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.”
