Top Ten

By Lisa Scott (Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada).

Four days ago I completed my final exam of the fall semester at Queen’s University and now it is time for me to embrace on a four week vacation in North America, which I am extremely looking forward to. As the semester is over and a lot of my new friends are leaving (they were only on exchange for a semester). I decided now would be a perfect time for me to reflect on my favourite and most memorable moments of the semester.

So here is my top ten (not in any particular order);

1 – Celebrating my 21st Birthday in one of Canada’s largest Cities – Toronto

2 – Visiting Niagara Falls – one of the natural wonders of the world

3 – Frosh week – A whole new meaning to the first week of university and a great way to make friends

4 – Halloween – Including some crazy fancy dress parties and a trip to a pumpkin field

5 – Wine tour and Sand dunes – Going on a wine tour and stopping for lunch to enjoy the beautiful sand dunes in the same area

6 – Visiting Montreal – My whole flat from residence decided to go on a group trip to Montreal

7 – Homecoming – This is a Queen’s tradition and occurred over two weekends and everyone dressed up in Queen’s clothing. It gives alumni the opportunity to return to campus and celebrate their success. The Alumni were really great to talk to and some of them even joined us when we were partying.

8 – The lead up to Christmas – Everyone in my flat starting wearing their Christmas jumpers, we went to visit Santa (turns out your never too old) and we had a big Christmas dinner

9 – Meeting people from all over the globe, e.g. Australia, Austria, Belgium, Malaysia, Germany, and Spain to name a few

10 – Jumping in Lake Ontario on glorious sunny days

I have had an excellent semester at Queen’s University and I am thoroughly excited to see what the winter semester will bring.

Happy Holidays
