There are many options available when choosing a post secondary program. However, there are different factors that need to be considered, as everyone’s needs and desires are different. These factors can include transfer options, special courses, and other benefits that no other college program has. My reasons for choosing Canadore’s Advertising program are as follows:
Media Arts: The program is part of the School of Media Arts and Design. Other Advertising programs such as the one from Georgian College is part of Business and Management.
Transfer Pathway: Canadore’s program allows graduates to further their education in other programs within the college through a transfer pathway. The other two programs available are Graphic Design and Public Relations.
Shared campus: Canadore College shares its main campus with Nipissing University. This gives students the opportunity to meet other students from a different post-secondary institution on campus.
Campus Trails: Canadore College (& Nipissing University) has its own campus trails that are a short walking distance from the main campus and from lower residence. This gives students an opportunity to take a hike whenever possible and to connect with nature.
Close to home: The fact that the college is located only 200 kilometers away from my home gives me the chance to go home whenever possible to help my parents on the farm. (This was their idea, not mine.)
