Once upon a time, I had a dream. When I was about 20 years old, I dreamt of becoming the world’s oldest student. That’s right. A student for life! I loved university so much I didn’t want it to end. I was surrounded by other people who love to learn. My parents weren’t around. I didn’t have to work. Um, well. See that’s where my dream ended, unfortunately. We won’t dwell on that.
But think about it. Canada’s university campuses have it all! Not only are they wired with the latest in technology, but countless other modern amenities as well. From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada’s post-secondary campuses offer you enormous possibilities for learning and leisure. Plus, you’ll have incredible opportunities to meet like-minded individuals and gain valuable experience through student-run governments, radio, newspapers and businesses.
So ‘drink it up’, people! Enjoy every last part of campus life. Meet new people, try a new sport. Canada is a land of opportunity, after all! And see if you can beat my record. Including my undergraduate degree, special qualification courses, and my Masters, I’ve been a post-secondary student for nine years. Yet somehow I’m not a doctor. A few more years should do it, eh?
