Reading week is coming! Do you have any plans? After stressful midterm exams we could all use the break for adjustment.

For me, Chinese New Year celebrations fall during the same time as the reading week. While I’m unable to spend this time with my family, I’m planning a party with all my friends. We will cook together, play board games and exchange gifts with each other.

I’m also going on the Broad Abroad: Florida trip through Brock International’s Exchange & Study Abroad office. It’s a five-day program that combines a unique blend of academic, business and cultural experiences. We’ll visit the University of Florida and have several seminars at Walt Disney World Resort. I think I’ll learn a lot from this experience!

If you’re not sure what you’re going to do during Reading Week, here are some suggestions:

Experience Canada
Reading week is a great time to explore Canada. If you like history and architecture, you can go to the Montreal and Quebec City. If you like to be active and experience the outdoors, then head to Blue Mountain in Collingwood where you can experience snowboarding, skiing and other fun activities.

Apply for Brock program
Brock always provide students with opportunities to make their break more interesting. For example, Brock Student Life and Community Engagement will provide many volunteer opportunities to get involved in local and international hands-on community projects.

Prepare for upcoming exams
After reading week, some of us will still have midterm exams, so while on reading week, it is important to set aside time to review and create a study plan.

Hope everyone enjoys reading week!
