Well, I must say that it’s really nice to be back and settled into a routine. It was a little bit of a shock to come back to school after relaxing for three weeks, but the busy pace has kept me going. So far, I’m really enjoying the new courses we have this semester. Even though we have to take an extra course, the workload is not nearly as strenuous as I thought it would be. I’ve been working pretty hard to stay on top of my readings, though I found time to prepare for something that I’m really excited to do.
For those of you who don’t know, the first week before classes is referred to as Frosh Week. For about the first 3 days or so, you’ll spend time settling in and getting to know all the people in your residence. In those days, Residence Dons lead a whole bunch of different activities that help us get acquainted with the campus. After residence orientation, all the faculties split up (Commerce, Engineering, Arts and Science etc…), and have their own faculty frosh week. This is where the fun starts. For the next 4 days, all the Commerce frosh are lead by orientation leaders (better known as Bosses) to do a whole bunch of fun and competitive activities. All of the Bosses need to go through an extensive interview process (which requires an elaborate skit), so right now I’m busy preparing for it. I don’t want to give away any of the details about my skit just yet, but if I become a Boss, feel free to ask me about what I did during Frosh Week.
Anyway, I know that it’s a real hectic time of year in preparation for the first round of marks to be submitted, but keep working hard, and hopefully we’ll see you here next September.
