It’s go time.

The start of a new semester can be tough.

Like, you know there are tons of adventures and experiences awaiting you in the months ahead — but it can still be hard to let go of your endless free time. It’s like any transition period in life, really — the delicate balance between grieving what’s past, adjusting to what’s present and anticipating what awaits.

Whoa, that was, like, super deep for an article about what students are excited for.

Kiko Merley of BROCKHAMPTON thinks.

Our musings aside, we want to get you pumped up for this term by sharing some of the coolest things you have to look forward to throughout the next 15 weeks. And, who better to share them than your peers?

In their own words, here’s what Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber students are most excited about this semester:

“Placement and graduation. Placement is a big stepping stone, and so is graduation, because they open up new experiences and enrich previous ones, which can help a person grow.”
