Mark down these dates in your 2017 calendar!
Sleep. Hanging out with the family. Catching up on Netflix. Seriously, who isn’t planning this for their winter holidays?
Family time is on the agenda for Amanda Massarelli, an Arts, Literature and Communication (ALC) student who came to Marianopolis from Polyvalente Pierrefonds: “For me, the holidays are most importantly about spending time with family. However, even though it’s the holidays, I still want to be productive. Of course I’ll be catching up on some much needed sleep, but also I would like to resume working on a short story that I started writing. A combination of family time mixed with late night writing sessions sounds like a special treat, in my book.”
Rachel Campbell-Johnson, a Howard S. Billings alumna and Social Science – Law, Society and Justice student, plans on spending her time off with Mickey and Minnie! “This winter break I will spend my time crossing a few books off of my Must Read list before I take off on an airplane with my best friend, headed to Florida on Marianopolis’ trip to Walt Disney World!”
While you are relaxing in fluffy socks, we hope you jot down some important upcoming events and dates in the new year:
- January 9, 2017: that’s when you can start signing up for our very popular Student-for-a-Day program, which starts up again in February. This is an awesome way for you to spend a day as a Marianopolis student, checking out the social scene, sitting in on classes and asking actual Marianopolis students anything you like.
- January 12, 2017: that’s when the Marianopolis application system opens and you can apply online to be admitted to the College.
- January 30, 2017: that is our Admissions Information Evening. It takes place from 4 to 7:30 p.m. It’s a fantastic source of information for you and your parents. Make sure to sign up and tell us you are coming. We would love to meet you and answer your questions about everything from admissions and academic offerings, to financial aid and more.
- March 1, 2017: that is the deadline to apply for admission.
The Marianopolis College Admissions Team wishes you happy holidays. See you in the new year!
See what else our students will be up to this winter:
Alexandra Sarmiento, 1st year Health Science student from Marymount Academy: I’ll be seeing the friends, eating, sleeping, watching my Filipino dramas, tutoring kids and repeating. I just wanna bake some Christmas cookies and listen to my ever so cringy Christmas playlist.
Ousmane Diagne, 1st year Social Science – Law, Society and Justice student from Collège Stanislas graduate: “During the vacation, I’d like to catch up on sleep. At first I probably won’t be that active and will be watching Netflix all day while stuffing my face with food but after some time I just might meet up with some friends. We are planning a family trip to Cancun for New Years which should be fun, though I dread the return to the cold afterwards. Christmas though will be here in Canada. Maybe, and that is a big maybe, if I find motivation, I’ll clean my room.”
Lea Jankouzian, 1st year ALC student from L’École Arménienne Sourp Hagop: Always keeping busy, I’ll be doing some volunteer work over the holidays at my local community centre. I usually spend most of my break with family but I always make time to decorate gingerbread houses with my best friend (it’s a tradition). Most importantly, I sleep in. Happy holidays everyone!
Neha Karanth, 1st year Social Science – Law, Society and Justice student from École Saint-Georges: This holiday season, I will be traveling to India for 2 weeks…I will be going to the beach, visit some family and spend time relaxing after this exam period! I hope to catch up on my sleep and my favourite shows! Before going I will spend some time with my friends , go do some shopping and try this new Korean BBQ restaurant downtown. Basically taking it easy and getting ready and refueled for the coming semester!
Emily Andrews, 2nd year ALC student from École secondaire Augustin-Norbert-Morin: Thankfully, CEGEP allows me to have a month on break… which should be just enough time to recover from my sleep-deprived state! Other than sleeping, I’ll be taking this time to prepare for university admissions, reconnect with my family and ski! I’ll be enjoying the snow (instead of having to commute in it), and mostly spending time with people I care about.
