Why it's important to stay connected with 'myCentennial'
I am often quick to say that my most memorable and Centennial College experience was going on the Global Equity Learning Experience to Walpole Island. What many people do not know is that I found out about the opportunity on the very last day to apply! It was 10:00 am when I read the poster that stated that applications had to be in by 4:00pm sharp. I was excited about the opportunity but I was worried I would not even be able to apply in time. When I sat down with Centennial College faculty to gather more information about the trip, I told her that I had just found out about it and her first question to me was, "Didn’t you check 'myCentennial'"? I didn't, and the information had been there all along. That was a major lesson for me! Since then I made keeping up with 'myCentennial' a priority.
Thankfully I didn’t miss out on that amazing opportunity but I came really close. Imagine all of the hassle that could’ve been avoided if I had been committed to doing that earlier.
