Three keys to a good education:
- Listen earnestly to your professors when they give a lecture, and to your colleagues when they share their thoughts. Understanding others can widen our own perspective.
- Don't let confusion build up — it can hamper learning. Clarify concepts or processes you don't understand as soon as you hear about them.
- Learning should not be a lonely process. When you're having a hard time, ask for help. Concordia has many resources you can tap.
Two lessons learned at FAS:
- Information is never neutral. It must not be simply digested, but carefully examined and reflected on.
- The world is built in a way that we are unequal and completely reliant on each other. The comforts we may have are at the expense of others, and this makes us our brother’s keeper.
One piece of advice for other students:
- Studying to just get the grade can be tedious and off-putting. Relate your coursework to your passions, long-term goals and aspirations. This approach can give you encouragement during difficult times.
