We (Erin and Kristy) went to Queen’s University for a week during
May. At first, we were both a bit nervous about going to a university
with university professors and university students, but upon our arrival
we discovered that it really wasn’t as scary as we initially thought.
Throughout the week we attended our respective classes and ate our meals
in the cafeterias, we met lots of new people and after classes we participated
in several activities such as movies, a much dance and shopping. There
were many other activities, some of which we also participated in. A few
of these activities were Ultimate Frisbee, Soccer, Stargazing and Hemp
The courses were very interesting and informative. The creative writing
course that Kristy took was inspirational in that it went over the process
of getting something published and encouraged everyone to continue writing
as much as possible. Erin also enjoyed her course, Aquatic Biology. She
got to go on field trips and take samples of lake water from diverse areas,
which she then got to examine under a microscope and record her findings.
As the week progressed, we quickly learned the basic layout of the campus
and were able to make it all the way to the library without getting lost
at all. The library was pretty much the main attraction and both of us
were in awe of its vast collection of books.
We highly recommend this experience to anyone, particularly those who
plan on going to university or pursuing some other sort of post-secondary
