I’m the type of person who likes to go with the flow and not have every moment of every day planned out. So what I do between classes varies on the day. Most days you can find me in the graphic design room working on projects, since school kinda' takes up most of my time. I actually really enjoy the graphic design program and I’m pretty much friends with everyone in my program, so it doesn’t bother me to spend so much time in the graphic design room.
But there are times when I will go crazy if I spend too much time on a project or spend too much time in that room, so I need to get out. On those days when I do decide to get out of the room there are a few things I might do depending on the day. Sometimes I will hop on the student shuttle and head over to the Cambridge campus and visit my friends over there (they are in the Electrical Engineering program). And when I’m at the Cambridge campus with them we will either hang out in their classroom where they will show me some of the cool projects they have been working on, or we will just hang out in the caf. Sometimes we go to the Game Room and play pool (because they have a pool table).
There are other days that me and my friends from my class will go to the Venue (especially on Tuesdays) and compete in their Trivia Tuesdays event. It’s a great way to relax and have fun! And some days I just like to go to the gym alone. I find when I’m really stressed about a project or quizz it really helps me de-stress and get rid of some of the anxiety that I may have.
Another thing I do between classes is go to the Rec Centre and play pingpong with my friend Dani. We don’t get to see each other very often, so we made it a thing to go to the Rec Centre every Thursday and play pingpong either before class or in between classes. And if there’s ever a day where the pingpong tables aren't set up, we will get a coffee from Tim Hortons and go upstairs at the Rec Centre and just relax on the couches and catch up with each other.
Sometimes I like to visit my friends at their jobs on campus. I have friends who work in the Student Life Centre, the I.T service desk, and at the Venue. You can often find me between classes just hanging out at the Venue with some friends. I really enjoy live music Thursdays. I love listening to music and live music Thursdays gives me the chance to hear new music and check out artists from the area. They also have great food at the Venue which is a plus.
So as you can see there are a lot of things that I like to do in between classes on campus. So if you ever don’t know what to do between classes on campus I hope this helps to give you some ideas!
