Favourite thing about ConEd?: My favourite thing about ConEd is how friendly everyone is. Right from the start of orientation week I felt so welcomed. I made some of my best friends in con-ed from my prof class and I sit with con-ed people in almost all my lectures. Its so nice to have some familiar faces right from the beginning when you're in huge lecture halls!!
Favourite first year class?: My favourite first year class was PROF 110. It gave me a better understanding of what it takes to become a teacher as well as learn about my strengths and weaknesses as a person. I also really enjoyed getting to know so many people in my program and made some of my best friends through my prof class!!
Favourite thing about Teach exec?: My favourite thing about Teach exec is how passionate they are. They truly love our faculty so much and are so excited to make your orientation week the best ever!!! They are also some of the warmest, friendliest and funniest people I've ever met.
Personal Spotlight: Hey!! My name is Anna and I am so excited to be a teach and relive orientation week with all of you! I am majoring in sociology looking to teach I/S with teachable in history and geography. I love little kids and all their energy. I love travelling, skiing and spending time with my friends. I am also super passionate about music and spend all of my money on concert tickets. I am a very social and friendly person so do not hesitate to come up and say hi.
Words of wisdom: Be yourself!!! Frosh week can be intimidating with so many new people but if you hold true to yourself you will find other people that are interested in the same things as you. If you don't meet your best friends in frosh week thats okay too! Join clubs, intramurals or talk to the person sitting beside you in class in order to meet as many new people as possible.

Personal Spotlight: Hi, I'm Avery and I cannot wait to be a Teach!! I am planning on majoring in Biomath with teachables in math and biology. I love to dance, talk a lot, watch Criminal Minds, sing in the car and eat ice cream (peanut butter chocolate is the best, I'm not wrong). I am also one of the first year, soon to be second year reps for CESA, so join CESA, its a ton of fun and a great way to meet friends (and upper years who have cars and can drive you!!). I am so excited for O-week 2020 and to meet all of you!
Words of wisdom: Get involved, step outside your comfort zone, be yourself and have lots of fun! There are so many incredible opportunities to take advantage of and so many amazing people to meet. By stepping outside my comfort zone and forcing myself to be myself even when I was nervous, has led me to meet some of my best friends and encouraged me to get more involved than I ever thought I would! There is a really a place for everyone here at Queens, so don't be worried if you don't find your people right away, it will happen! Also, make sure you use all of your TAMS or if you're going to eat at the dining hall, Ban is wayyyy better!! First year goes by quickly, so take time for yourself, have fun and make the most of it!
