Favourite first-year class?: My favorite first year class is Psychology 100 because along with all the connedies, everyone is struggling through this course with you. You are not alone. Best of luck!
Favourite thing about Teach Exec?: Con-ed is such a special program filled with kindhearted, supportive individuals who are extremely welcoming and inclusive. My favourite part about being a teach exec is connecting with older connedies and getting to meet new students of varied ages!!
Personal Spotlight: Welcome class of 26!!! My name is Maddy Moskovic and I am so excited to welcome all of the connedies to such a special program. I am majoring in English, in hope to work in primary/junior.

Please don't hesitate to say hi if you see me and feel free to ask any questions you wish!!!!!
Words of wisdom: Transitioning to university is scary, that's undeniable. However, everyone is just as terrified as the next person. The anxiety is normal, but try your best to turn it into excitement instead. Make the most of O-week and meet as many new people as possible. Don't be scared when introducing yourself to others, everyone wants to meet people!!

Favourite thing about ConEd?: There are so many things that I love about ConEd such as prof class, the numerous events organized, but I think my favorite would have to be the sense of community you gain just through sharing a common interest.
Favourite first-year class?: Definitely prof class! While all my other profs where informing me how hard their class will be, my prof class started with a scavenger hunt of Duncan McArthur. Being the competitive individual I am, I made sure to take home that 1st place purple dinosaur congratulation card!
Favourite thing about Teach Exec?: The exec's are all soooo nice and each bring their own bubbly personality to everything they do! They are always positive and so fun to talk to!!!
Personal Spotlight: Hi, incoming frosh. My name is Logan Heaven and I am beyond excited to meet my fellow con-eddies. I am planning on teaching in the I.S stream majoring in biology with a second teachable in chemistry so if you have any questions at all about the science or teaching streams don't hesitate to reach out. A couple fun facts about me include: I love travelling and am planning on teaching internationally, there's a TV documentary made about my family in which I am in, I still don't know my left and rights, and I hope to own a VW hippie van in 5 years! I am pretty loud so if you hear me around don't hesitate to come say hi.
Words of wisdom: I know the transition to university can be terrifying with all the new people, buildings, food and work load but just remember everyone is in that same position. I strongly recommend getting involved with the many opportunities that queens offers weather that's intramurals, orientation or the many events CESA has to offer. This is a chance to meet new people and build amazing friendships. It was at con-ed camp that I met so many great people some of which became my best friends with! Another thing to remember is that first year academics is tough, but if you persevere you will do great!!
Name: Kayla Emmerton
Nickname(s): Kay, Bay, Kaybay, Kon-Key (it's a long story...)
Personal Pronouns: She/Her
Hometown: Caledon, ON
Favourite thing about ConEd?: I love the spirit and enthusiasm in the Con-Ed program! No one is afraid of looking silly and is always willing to participate in wild traditions. You will never laugh as much as you with other Con-Eddies and will always feel like you belong.
Favourite first-year class?: MATH121 is organized SO well and it honestly makes my heart happy so that's definitely high on my list. I also loved MUSC114, Teaching Music to Children! I loved learning the ukulele and lots of songs and activities to use in my future classroom :)
Favourite thing about Teach Exec?: The Teach Exec are HILARIOUS. I genuinely think they should have their own sitcom, which I would watch religiously. You can tell they all love working together and make a great team.
Personal Spotlight: Hi friends, I’m SO excited to meet you all! My name is Kayla and I’m a second year I/S student with teachables in music and math. If I’m not sitting next to a large window in Stauffer, you can usually find me going for walks, watching the Bachelor, or taking horrible pictures of my friends. I love to stay involved at school through CESA, intramurals and working at the SLC! I also love country music, curling, swimming, my agenda, mountains, and volunteering! I will never say no to getting ice cream and am a sucker for cheesy romance novels. I am a forever optimist and promise you will LOVE Queen’s. Get ready for the wild ride, can’t wait to meet you soon!
Words of wisdom: Go for it. Sit next to a stranger in class, join a new club, make plans to grab coffee with your can mate, share news in prof class, go to the gym by yourself, try a new dish at the dining hall… Coming to University can be pretty intimidating and takes a lot of steps out of your comfort zone but every step is worth it. Everyone is feeling nervous, wants to make friends, and is trying their best to figure everything out. It might take awhile for you to find your place, but I promise there’s a place for everyone, and you’re right where you need to be.
