  3. Engineering - it's challenging. Sometimes too much, but it keeps the program I'm in really interesting.

  4. Math Econ - Well mostly the econ, but also the math.

  5. Engineering: literally every day that I attend school I leave feeling like I've made myself a better person in some way, both with technical knowledge/skills, as well as "soft" skills (patience, risk taking, perseverance, critical thinking...)

    1. +1. I can't agree more. The people I'm surrounded are incredibly smart and I learn a lot from them.

  6. I'm genuinely passionate about Maths and every single day I learn something that completely blows my mind. Maths is truth and Maths is beauty.
    All my professors so far have been incredible too- super inspirational, their love for the subject just spilling out of them everyday. Best of all, they take as much of a personal interest in your learning as they possibly can.

  8. Knowing that I'm smarter than people in other programs and working with peers at my level.
    Co-op at big companies.
    Knowing that I'm going to graduate with a job bringing me $$$ lined up for me.
    Being the envy of my former high school friends (at least, soon).

    Stupid bimbos and partiers in arts. They don't know what they're missing out. Who's making the money? Hahaha.

    1. By stupid people in other programs, I mean those in science / arts. They don't even know real math.

    2. Boy, do you ever sound like a bitter little child. No wonder you wrote 'former' in front of 'high school friends'.

    5. @d: that still makes you a frosh to me ^_^ One day you will grow older and wiser and realize that you're not quite the hot shit as you think you are... also, how much you come across as a total ass.

      This kind of retaliatory bs against what I'm sensing as some high school bullying is just childish and insecure. You're becoming what you hate.

  9. I'm a Joint Honours, Arts and Business co-op student.

    I actually really enjoy ARBUS for the classes-- I had never taken a business course before going into university, and to my surprise, I found that I actually liked it. It's also given me a level of flexibility and soft skills that, considering my interests, I don't think I would've gotten anywhere else.
    Also, the absolutely amazing profs (Orend, Carvalho, even the 102 one, haha) are worth every minute of the 101 profs, and I still keep in touch with my 202 one (we talk about comic books, which is awesome!).

    I really love my Joint Honours for the sheer subject matter, and how I've actually been able to combine the two of them-- I've looked at Queen's, Western, and UoT, but none of them had combos I wanted. The profs, because both are smaller programs, are super chill-- the ones who are really good teachers are always so eager to lend a helping hand and to explain things that are for grad students or beyond, and the ones who aren't so hot at teaching are still really kind and still help out the best they can.

    I've also met some really wonderful people in all three of my areas, and made some really good friends.

    I honestly... I lucked out a lot. My degree fell into place, and both of my Joint Honours are very different but so complementary that everything from law to big data analytics to public policy to journalism is open to me as a graduate student. I love this school, I have an amazing support system, I love what I'm studying-- what more can I ask for?
