A couple of weeks or even months have already passed, and I don’t know about you, but last year around this time I was a bundle of nerves. For the first time, it is real, you will be taking your first step to anything you want to be in the future. Hopefully you all receive a bunch of acceptances, but I’ll tell you why I was so excited when I received an e-mail from Brock’s Office of the Registrar that read:
Congratulations! I am pleased to offer you admission to the Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) Co-op.”
I’m a business student, and that is what I love. However, I cannot stress enough what Brock had to offer for me that others did not. For me, that was to follow my dreams. If you are an avid sports fan, if you appreciate the fine arts, even if you want to dedicate your life to giving out a hand for others, Brock offers a major for each one of those souls who ultimately want to follow their dreams the same way I do.
Right in year one, if you know what you want to do, the specificity of some of the programs lets you jump right into some major classes. But if you do not know what you want to do yet, there is also a place for you. Brock’s academic flexibility gives you a chance to explore many areas of interest, electives, and more so that you can ultimately discover your passion.
For me, I’ve always had an interest in Biology, but never got the chance to look at it back in school. I’ve chosen my first-year elective on an introductory biology class, which both fulfills my credit and lets me expand my knowledge into the things I’ve been craving to learn.
Overall, you cannot go wrong by choosing Brock as your home for the next four years. And yes, I mean home because after all, you will be spending a great part of your life in university for the next couple of years, so you must choose wisely. I dare to say that Brock has the nicest campus in Ontario, and in it are the nicest people too! So, I invite you to come aboard, there will be no regrets I promise.
Like my peers in social media like to say, #BrockUisBeautiful. Do not miss the chance to experience it for yourself.
See you soon future Badgers, I salute you.
