I have a confession to make. These past couple of years have been really difficult for me. And boy, am I ever thankful for that fact! I needed a time of refinement. By that, I mean that I really needed a period of time in which I was able to "not know" what I was doing, "not know" all of the answers, make mistakes, mess up...etc.
Ambrose Ambassador Blogs
Well, have you ever felt that feeling of “being done” with something? Or, loving every minute of it, while simultaneously ready to move on to the next chapter in your life? That tension of wanting time to move faster, while at the same time wanting it to slow down? I remember feeling this way when I was in grade 12, and now I’m living it again in my final year of my undergraduate degree. There’s times when I love school, and don’t get me wrong, those times are quite often, but what do you do when you don’t love school? When you feel… done?
Choosing my classes was one of the hardest things I had to do when coming to Ambrose. It felt overwhelming to look at the list of classes and outline my first two semesters without knowing profs or if I would have friends in the classes I picked. I thought that this schedule was something that could not be changed. I assumed that when I pushed submit it was gone and my year was set, but, THAT’S NOT THE CASE!
The transition from high school to university is a big step. University demands greater responsibility, diligence, and self-discipline. You learn to mature because you find the mature and adult perspective of university is balanced by the freedom that comes with being an adult student. In this blog posting, I will discuss the freedoms that a university, like Ambrose University, offers to students.
Upon arriving at Ambrose, one of the things I was most concerned about was making friends in residence and being a part of the many different activities that take place.
It is that time in the semester where every student dreads ‘Finals Apocalyptic Week’. This is where some students leave final papers, take home exams, and preparing those 150 cue-cards for your biology exam, all until the final week of classes.
To be completely honest, I used to think that Ambrose was just another bible college with not much to offer for other programs. I always knew that I wanted to go into a Business Administration program and people would say to me that to do that I needed to go to a provincial university or another big name school.
