Hi there! You’ve reached an older post on the #YUBlog that may no longer contain relevant or up-to-date information. For the latest posts on York University go to our homepage where you can also search for posts by topic.
My name is Kren and welcome to my blog: York 2.0! I am currently in the 1-year consecutive Bachelor of Education program at York University. I am studying to be an Intermediate/Senior English and History teacher. I also attained my undergraduate degree at York University, and because I had such a positive experience here, I decided to pursue my teaching degree at York too.
When I think back to the first year of my undergrad, it humbles me to know how far I have come and how much opportunity I was presented with at York. As a commuter, I still found ways to stay involved on campus, from running student clubs to working at school. Finding a part-time job at York gave me the opportunity to work in a professional setting where I could apply my writing skills to gain work experience related to my English major.
University will not always be a walk in the park, but it’s an adventure that will help you grow in ways you’ve never imagined. There will be times when you will be stressed and exhausted and still have to push yourself to finish your readings or that paper due in the next few hours. Just remember to stay focused, and work hard because the effort you put into the next four years of your life will only end up benefitting you.
I’m looking forward to sharing my university experiences with you in the hope that I can help you along your journey. If there’s a certain topic you want me to cover, or advice about school, or questions about York from a student-centric perspective, I’ll be happy to share my opinions with you!
