As we’re closing in on this academic year, you’ve probably started to think about next year, and whether you’re returning or not. As a second year Dal student, I’m already looking forward to coming back for another great year at Dalhousie/King’s.
So why I am coming back for September? Because I love it here—I love the atmosphere of Halifax and Dal, the awesome courses and profs and the great community.
I love that the ocean is only a 10 to 15 minute walk from Dal. I enjoy talking a stroll down Spring Garden Road to buy a coffee from Starbucks, or just to relax. I love that I can walk or bus to the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market to buy fresh fruit.
Enough of all the reasons to love Halifax—let’s see why I want to continue my education at Dal, and not at another university.
Well…if I want to continue on with sociology and journalism, I’m at the right place. Here, I receive the best of both worlds.
Dal has a great sociology program, the profs have taught me so much and I can’t wait for another year of gathering experiences. The University of King’s College has a great journalism program, which I hope to enter next year.
So, I ask the question again…why am I staying? Well…why wouldn’t I stay?
