Dustine
All about Dustine
Hey Everyone! My name is Dustine and I am in my fourth year of the Business Administration program. However, I will be pursuing my love for teaching elementary school. Here at Brock I have lived in both styles of residence buildings and off campus as well. I have participated in many residence activities such as Residence Action Council and Residence Life Staff. I am also a very active member of Brock Dance here on campus.

I come from a small town called Tavistock, Ontario. We only have one main intersection. I understand how uneasy coming to an unknown place can be. All I can say is that it was well worth it and one of the best experiences I have ever had.

I look forward to meeting many of you on our amazing tours and preview days. If you have any questions you can comment on my blogs.

All about Karen
Hey there Future Badgers! My name is Karen and I'm in my 4th year here at Brock University. I am in the Concurrent Education program with a teachable and minor in Human Geography. I had spent my first two years at Brock living in Decew Residence both as a student and a Living Learning Community (LLC) Peer Mentor. I've lived in my hometown of Toronto, ON my whole life until I started my amazing journey at Brock. As much as I miss the busy city life of Toronto, I have definitely fallen deeply in love with the small town, community feel that Brock offers. If you have any questions, feel free to comment on my blog. I hope to see some of you here for a tour of our lovely campus this Fall or Spring! Take care!

Katelyn
All about Katelyn
Hey everyone! My name's Katelyn and I'm in my fourth year of the concurrent education program here at Brock at the Junior/Intermediate level with a teachable in French. I have always had a passion for working with children, so I knew that the Con Ed program here at Brock was the perfect fit for me! After I finish my five years here, I hope to work as a French teacher in an elementary school. I also hope to have the opportunity to teach in another country, since I love to travel and experience new places and cultures. I grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, but have been fortunate enough to call St. Catharines my home for the past three years and I look forward to what sorts of adventures I will get up to during my last year of undergraduate studies here. This is also my third year as a Campus Experience Coordinator, so hopefully I can answer any questions you may have about being a university student!

My name is Kevin, and I am a fourth year Honours Community Recreation and Leisure student with a minor in Political Science. I have been involved in many community services and programs including Intramural Referee at Brock, working in day camps and programs throughout the summer. Brock University has been a great environment for me as it has provided me many ways to get involved in the Brock community through work, volunteering and programs.

My favourite sports are rugby, hockey, and lacrosse and I try to attend as many school games as I can. I am excited for the upcoming school year as I will be heavily involved in Campus life between the Recreation Services department, the Recruitment department, and the Brock University Students' Union.

Kirsten
All about Kirsten
Hello Brock students! My name is Kirsten and I am a fifth year Bachelor of Science Kinesiology student here at Brock University. To sum up my time here thus far, IT'S BEEN AWESOME! This is my first year being a Campus Experience Coordinator (CEC) and I'm excited to share my love for Brock University with prospective students.

But first here's a little about me. During my time at Brock I have participated in intramural soccer, flag football, hockey and under water hockey (potentially the best sport ever invented). Academically, I have been apart of the MedPlus program, which is a program geared towards students looking for a career in the medical field. Through these activities I've met a lot of new friends. If you see me in the halls feel free to give me a friendly shout out. I look forward to meeting you. Come and explore Brock University with me and see what it can offer you for both sides of the brain.

Hey guys! I'm Lauren and I'm entering my fourth (and final!!) year at Brock in Psychology. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, testing out the coffee shops around town, taking in the sites around Niagara and hunting for steals at the local shopping hotspots. This is my second year as a Campus Experience Coordinator and I'm absolutely ecstatic to be coming back for another year!

I knew that I wanted to come to Brock the moment that I set foot on campus, and it's my biggest hope that you can feel as at home as I've felt with this school. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my blogs and I'll be sure to get back to you with the answer!

All about Mallory
Hello everyone! My name is Mallory and welcome to my blog!
First thing you'll need to know about me is that I love to learn from others... and trust me, this small town country girl has a lot to learn! Joy is something that radiates from each of us, and as a fourth year Concurrent Education student at Brock, I have found so much joy in and around campus. So much to do, so little time.. Brock always has something great planned for all of its students, and I cannot wait to fill you in on each experience. Family, friends, nature, sports, dramatic arts and volunteering is just the beginning. So sit back and travel with me on this fourth year adventure at Brock!

Meghan
All about Meghan
Hello! My name is Meghan and I am attending Brock University in my third year of the Concurrent Education BA/BEd I/S program with a major in Drama and second teachable in English. During my first year at Brock I was able to be part of Brock Musical Theatre's production of RENT. This experience led me out of my shell right from the beginning of my first year, and allowed me to grow into the Brock community. I was able to see how important it is to branch out and get involved which is why last year as well as this year I have been a Residence Don in order to ensure that our incoming first years get the best experience possible at Brock!

A piece of advice:
When you choose a school, you are going there for your academics, BUT, your social and extra-curricular life are just as important in order to be a well-rounded student. Don't be afraid to try new things. Don't let the feeling of "only being in first year" or "having too much work to do" stop you from getting involved because this is the time to do it. This is the time to use 'both sides of the brain' in order to be that well-rounded person. When you find something you love, something that brings out the best in you, don't find excuses to not do it. Let it be your outlet. Let it the thing you go to or do when you're feeling overwhelmed because in the long run, it will keep you happy, confident and sane!

My name is Ryder Damen, and I'm a 4th year Biomedical Sciences student. I just returned from a 15 month international exchange to Australia, Hong Kong, France, and 21 countries in-between, and would love to tell you about how you can do it too.
