Program/area of study
Arts - Psychology major

What do you like/love about your program?
I love learning about how people think and interact with one another, as well as learning about the various mental illnesses and how to treat/cure them.

What are your interests/passions/hobbies?
I love to play video games in my spare time, mostly with my friends online. I also love to generally hang out and be around people, converse about anything from world news and politics to a gentle conversation about favourite experiences.

Do you have a talent or amazing experience to share?
A talent that many have told me I have is an uncanny ability to be well read on a large variety of topics, to the point of being able to make a conversation interesting.

What is one helpful study technique that you use?
One thing that made my experience a lot easier in university was switching from hand written notes to notes taken on a laptop. It allows me to quickly copy down the powerpoints and still have enough time to listen and add whatever the professor is saying. (Also, when you study, try to study in groups just in case you missed something important.)

What language(s) do you speak and write?
I only speak and write in English.

Describe yourself in 3 words
Funny, caring, and empathetic.

Program/area of study
Arts, Political Studies major and Sociology minor

What do you like/love about your program?
I like learning about the functions and purposes of all types of governments and historical regimes, as well as discussing certain types of social issues within our society. I enjoy how closely related my major and minor are so that key figures and concepts are talked about in all my classes. 

What are your interests/passions/hobbies?
My biggest hobby would have to be astronomy. On clear nights I like to take out my telescope and view planets and nebulae. My particular favourite sight is Orion's Nebula M42. I also enjoy listening to house music and riding around my farm on my dirtbike. 

Do you have a talent or amazing experience to share?
I can solve 4 different types of puzzle cubes: Rubiks, Windmill, Square 1 and Rubiks Void. 

What is one helpful study technique that you use?
As I read over my already written notes, I like to rewrite them with a closed pen and my eyes closed so I can visualize the correct answers in my head.

What language(s) do you speak and write?
English but hopefully Italian as well after my study abroad in Cortona.

Describe yourself in 3 words
Passionate, loyal, and outgoing.

Program/area of study
Physical Education

What do you like/love about your program?
I love that I am able to take courses that are relevant to what I am ultimately planning to do as a career.

What are your interests/passions/hobbies?
I have a great number of interests, passions, and hobbies! I play the piano, do all sorts of crafty things (which usually changes every few months or so) like jewelry making, candle making, crochet, cross stitch, etc. I love to cross country ski and coach biathlon for the Camrose Vikings and, of course, there is also the classic and widely loved hobby of watching Netflix! My favourite movies are usually Disney or Pixar animated films with the occasional sci-fi/fantasy movie. I also like to read books, although being a student I hardly ever have the time! 

Do you have a talent or amazing experience to share?
My most amazing experiences have been those of my travels, and like most stories they are best told in person! As for talent, I'd say my creativity and resourcefulness.

What is one helpful study technique that you use?
Take breaks! I like to do a 30 minutes on/10 minutes off rotation, where I study for half an hour and then take a ten minute break to do something relaxing. I find I work much more efficiently this way and it keeps the anxiety at bay.

What language(s) do you speak and write?
My first language is English and I write very well in it. I can speak passable French and a little bit of Spanish, but I wouldn't trust myself to write anything in those languages.

Describe yourself in 3 words
Compassionate, determined, and resilient
