Favourite thing about ConEd?: I love the atmosphere of Con-Ed and the close-knit community that it brings! It is so cool sharing a lot of similar interests and passions with people from various backgrounds, you are bound to make so many new friends in Con-Ed! Also a huge shout-out to Vicky (she gives you top-notch advice and will help you plan out your time here at Queen's) and Holly (she is so kind and passionate about what she does!)

Favourite first year class?: PHYS 104/106; Prof. Martin and Somi are both awesome, the class is very interesting (kind of hard tho...), and I also met a lot of friends there too!

Favourite thing about Teach exec?: Teach execs are some of the kindest people you will meet! They are also very supportive, funny, and good looking! Strike up a conversation with them and you won't be wanting more. A+

Personal Spotlight: Hey there! My name is Daniel, and I am sooo excited for Frosh Week! I am majoring in Physics and minoring in Mathematics, and with teachables in, you guessed it, Math and Physics. I love helping out people (hit me up with any math or physics questions!), travelling,  hanging out with friends, and going swimming! I also have an unhealthy obsession with Starbucks, the 4th floor of Stauffer (you'll understand why soon!) and Gordon Ramsey videos! I look forward to meeting all of you and having one of the best weeks of our lives :)

Words of wisdom: Naps are ridiculously underrated. In fact, I think I'm going to take one after writing this...

Hometown: Ithaca, New York (I am 100% American, but 100% Canadian in my <3)

Favourite thing about ConEd?: My favorite thing about ConEd is being a part of this MEDIUM SIZED, HAPPY FAMILY. I adore the sense of love and community ConEd has. Plus, our leather jackets and cheers are better than the other faculties (tea).

Favourite first year class?: Moral Issues Philosophy 157 was an absolute banger of a class. It was super fun to debate issues and I learned a lot. Plus, my TA had a dog that we could pet:) and she made us cookies for his (the dog) birthday hehehe

Favourite thing about Teach exec?: I love how fun and welcoming the teach execs are. They definitely know a good meme or two and can make us all feel super comfortable. They are also super understanding and amazingggg!

Personal Spotlight: Hi, I’m Amelia. I am an American who just dreams of being a Canadian. I am majoring in religious studies and am in P/J. I love Taylor Swift (sorry, not sorry), I do ballet, I LOVE animals and volunteer at the humane society, and I LOVE CONED. I am sooo excited for O-Week and to be a fine teach, who’s sweet as a peach. Ask me about how I am a picky eater, my favorite colors, and favorite animals.

Words of wisdom: YOU WILL NOT RUN OUT OF TAMS. You might think you will and feel the need to save them, but really, you will have extra at the end of the year. So, TAM your life up! Use two a day sometimes! Do not deprive yourself of a 21 burger because you don’t want to waste a TAM. Thank you for coming to my TED talk:)
