CHOOSE JOY…AND WALK INTO THAT EXAM WITH A LITTLE PEP IN YOUR STEP!

April 3, 2017

Hey guys, It’s Caitlyn here. I do not know if it is just me, but for me, the end of this semester has been the most stressful and exhausting period of time during university so far. Without going into great detail, alongside all of my final papers and exams, I also have many things to organize outside of school for the end of this semester. At this point, it seems like all of these tasks are out of my control and that this deep rooted

DUE DATE SEASON IS UPON US

March 6, 2017

Hello All! It’s me, Josh here, and it is that time of year again. While the snow might be melting away, the due dates continue to pile up. As with every year, the last month of the semester tends to be the busiest. While I have a lot of work to do for classes, with proper time management, I should be able to get everything finished on time. So today, I wanted to give a bit of advice for everyone who, like me, has a

READING WEEK TIPS!

February 14, 2017

Hi friends! It’s Caitlyn here again. Reading break is along the horizon – which also means that mid-terms are approaching fast, but let’s just block that out of our minds for now. I do not know about you, but I am determined to get ahead of school work this year. Last year during reading week my grandparents took my family on a vacation. So naturally, I read one book over the entire week and then came back and was flooded with a tsunami of work

LIFE AT BOOTH UC: AN EXPERIENCE TO REMEMBER!

February 9, 2017

Hello Everyone! It’s me Josh here, and today I wanted to talk just a bit about what is going on here at Booth. This week, Booth is celebrating heritage week, a time when we look back to see where we have come from. Throughout this week we have different activities taking place throughout the school, from speakers talking about the history of Booth University College, to free cake and coffee for staff and students. In theme with the idea of looking at our past, I

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS!

January 31, 2017

Hello everyone, it’s Laura again. To anyone who has read both of my blogs, you may see a pattern: so far, I’ve mostly written about Student Life events. I haven’t really covered my personal experience at Booth UC thus far, and even though I know I can’t cover the 5 semesters I’ve spent here in a few hundred words, I could list my “favourites” here at Booth University College: things like courses, places, events, and even meals at the Bistro. For those of you reading

EXCITING NEW OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD FOR BOOTH UC BUSINESS STUDENTS

January 18, 2017

Hello All, It’s me, Josh here, and I just wanted to take a minute to welcome everyone back to Booth for the start of the winter semester. Over the winter break I got the chance to spend time with family and friends, and I had a great time relaxing and not worrying about having an essay to complete. While it is always nice to be able to take a break, it was great to come back to Booth for the start of my sixth semester.

WISHING YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

December 13, 2016

Merry Christmas Everyone! Now here we are at the end of the first semester of the 2016-2017 year. The Christmas season is upon us, and students are rushing to finish up their final papers, and study for their last couple of exams. I finished my final paper for this semester yesterday morning – Monday – and am now finished all of my assignments and exams for the semester. Now I can kick back, and relax for my last couple of days here in residence, before

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

December 7, 2016

Hello again, Laura here! It’s hard to believe that since the last time I’ve written a blog, an entire semester has come to an end! That’s right, the last day of classes has already passed by, and students here could not be more ready. The semester’s definitely been a busy one, with plenty of different events from student services – like pumpkin carving, yoga classes, and a worship night – to keep us busy. There was even a visit from therapy dogs the other day

THE ART OF PROCRASTINATION!

November 28, 2016

Hello Everyone! It’s me, Josh here, and today I wanted to talk to you all about a student activity that many, if not all students around Booth have participated in. Many of the students will take hours out of their busy schedules to take part in this activity. What, you might be asking, is this mysterious activity that so many students are involved in? Why, it is none other than the art of Procrastination! As a student, procrastination is quite often a serious issue that

IS IT TIME TO EVALUATE YOUR STUDY SPACE?

November 21, 2016

Hey all, Do you find yourself continuously struggling to finish assignments in your bedroom where you also sleep and watch hours of Netflix? When you study, does your phone constantly beckon your name, calling you to play one final level of Candy Crush or check your Facebook newsfeed even though you did so ten times in the last ten minutes? Are you regularly scrambling to write 2500 words of a 2500 word essay the night before a deadline? If you answered yes to any of
