Where Alison reflects on her eighth and last open house at Glendon
What is your opinion on taking a year off/victory lap and just going straight to university?
IMO everybody should do what they need to do to achieve their goals. If that means you need to take a year off to think about what you want to do after high school, do it. If a victory lap means you’ll be able to go where you want to go and not have to settle, do it!
If you know you’re heading to university and you know you want to study something in the humanities, social sciences, or anything else in the liberal arts, Glendon offers the Undecided Major as an option for first year students. This relieves you of the anxiety of having to choose a major when you haven’t even taken a single university course yet.
A couple of our eAmbassadors have taken a year off before going into university, or started somewhere else and decided to transfer here after a year. Michelle has two great blog posts about her experiences which I totally recommend (here annnnd here).
If you have any other concerns about the topic, feel free to ask us on tumblr or Twitter! Best of luck.
Not at all! You can be a complete beginner at French, you could have core, immersion, or extended French. We have a bilingual requirement at Glendon so you’ll have to work up to a certain level of our French as a Second Language (FSL) courses, but you can start from any level to study at Glendon.
