Favourite thing about ConEd?: My favourite thing about ConEd is the sense of community that this faculty provides! Coming into first year at a new school can be so intimidating and scary but this faculty makes you feel like you're a part of a whole new family making it so much easier to make new friends and new memories. The people in this faculty are the coolest and kindest people on campus, the ConEd love within this faculty is unreal!

Favourite first year class?: My favourite first year class would have to be MATH121! I know, someone who likes math?! Crazy stuff.

Favourite thing about Teach exec?: My favourite thing about teach exec is how kind and welcoming they all are, they really are the glue that holds our little family together and they're always there if you want to talk to someone or just want someone to hang out with!

Personal Spotlight: Hey! I'm Shannon and I'm so excited to be a part of this years orientation week! I am a chemistry major pursuing a math minor in the I/S stream with teachables in those subjects! I am an absolute sucker for ANYTHING Broadway related and love to dance (even though my years of dancing are WAY behind me). I love the outdoors and love to canoe and hang out by the waterfront. I am very much a "camp girl" and have MASTERED the art of friendship bracelets -if you ever need any help on that front I'm your girl. I love spending time with my friends and am so excited to welcome in a whole bunch of new ones when orientation week begins. I love to chat so please don't hesitate to come up to me if you see me around campus, I look forward to meeting all of you soon!!

Words of wisdom: Don't worry if you feel like you haven't found your people yet. It can be hard to feel like you're fitting in but everyone is in the same boat and you will find your friend group eventually so don't stress too much, just try to enjoy it while it lasts because first year will be over in the blink of an eye!
