Hi Everyone, Happy New Year!!

I hope everyone is having a great start to 2017 and are sticking to all those New Year’s resolutions!

It’s the first week of Term 2 here at Brock, and classes are well under way already! It was nice to have a break for the holidays, but there is a lot of excitement around campus because we are all happy to be back with our favourite Badgers! 🙂

I can imagine there is quite a bit of excitement for many of you who are in Grade 12. You have finally made it to your final stretch of high school! Yay! This means you probably have a lot on your minds about what steps you will be taking after you cross that stage at graduation this spring.

As many of you are probably patiently waiting to hear back about your applications to Brock, I have a suggestion that will help you pass the time. It is a GREAT idea to come to Brock’s campus for a tour!! Here are all of the reasons why:

1. Brock is Beautiful
That’s right, Brock really is beautiful. Our campus is nice and compact, and you can walk from one end of campus to the other in about 10 minutes. We have a lot of green space, and also some really cool hiking trails! Brock also has spacious buildings with huge windows, letting in a lot of natural light which brings even more life to campus. I could go on and on about this point, but I’ll let you see it for yourself. 🙂

2. You might be living here for 4 years!
Choosing Brock is a big decision! For most of you, university will be the very first time you are living away from home.  This means it is important to visit us in order to decide if you can really see yourself spending the next few years of your life here!  You can explore our unique residence buildings, take a peek at some of our lecture halls and seminar rooms, and see many student gathering spots like our cafeterias and dining halls.

3. You can experience the energy of a regular day on campus.                                                       Regular tours on campus run Monday-Friday at both 10:00am and 2:00pm.  This means they run during peak times of regular school days for our students, so you get to see what it’s really like to walk around campus on a typical day!  There’s always a lot of energy on campus and there’s usually some sort of activity or event under way here.  On our campus tours, you will most likely have current students welcoming you to campus in the halls, making you feel right at home.

4. Your tour guide is a current student who can share their experience with you.                     Tours at Brock are run by student ambassadors (your tour guide may even be ME!!).  This is awesome, because we were in grade 12 making the same decisions as you not very long ago.  We know exactly how you are feeling and we can share our experience with you about how and why we chose Brock.  Our student tour guides are knowledgable about student life at Brock and we love to share all of the exciting ways we like to get involved and have fun on campus.

5. You will feel more comfortable coming here on your first day if you have already seen our campus.                                                                                                                                             This last point speaks for itself!  You will definitely feel a little better arriving on your first day in September if you can see some familiar locations on campus, and know what everything looks like.  It’ll be a little easier to find your classes, and maybe you can test your memory and try to show some of your new friends around ;).

That’s all for today! I Hope to see some of you on a tour in the near future 🙂
