In celebration of our convocation 2023, and the opportunity for us to finally be together and celebrate in person after three years, we asked our graduates to share their Anderson College experience.
Asking, “How has Anderson College changed your life?” prompted over a hundred submissions … this is one of those extraordinary student stories.
We hope this reflection moves you, as it has our Anderson family, and inspires you to ever embrace the career and life you imagine and, truly, deserve.
College is a life-changing experience for many individuals. It is a period of personal growth, intellectual development, and the acquisition of new skills. I too can attest to the life-changing impact college has had on me.
“One of the significant ways that college changed my life was by expanding my knowledge and skills.”
My college journey at Anderson College, North York began in the fall of 2020. I was fresh out of high school, eager to embark on a new adventure. It was a significant change for me since I was moving away from home for the first time. I was anxious about the challenges that lay ahead, but also excited about the opportunities that awaited me.
The first few weeks of college were a period of adjustment. I had to learn how to manage my time efficiently, navigate my way around campus, and balance my academic and social life.
“Anderson also taught me how to work independently and collaborate effectively with others.”
One of the significant ways that college changed my life was by expanding my knowledge and skills. In high school, I had taken advanced courses in various subjects, but college exposed me to a whole new level of learning. The instructors were experts in their fields, and they challenged me to think critically and creatively. I was exposed to new ideas and perspectives, which broadened my worldview and made me more open-minded.
Anderson also taught me how to work independently and collaborate effectively with others. In many of my classes, we were required to complete group projects, which helped me develop my communication and leadership skills. I learned how to negotiate, compromise, and delegate tasks effectively. Another way that Anderson College changed my life was by helping me develop my passions and interests.
“I have gained valuable skills and experiences that will help me to succeed in any career I choose.”
Finally, Anderson College changed my life by preparing me for the future. As I approach graduation, I feel confident and prepared to enter the workforce. I have gained valuable skills and experiences that will help me to succeed in any career I choose. I have also made lifelong connections with classmates, professors, and mentors who will continue to support me throughout my life.
