My Blueprint ‘Ask Us Anything’ Contest
Making the leap to college or university next year? Do you have questions that your guidance counsellor can’t answer?
Maybe you are curious about…
- what your first week on campus will be like?
- top tips for making friends with your TAs and Professors.
- why you should be friendly to your TA?
- how to get involved with the school community when you’re commuting to school?
- what will food on campus be like?
- how do you pick courses?
- how did you pay for tuition?
- anything else you need an answer to
Want to ask someone who has recently ‘been there, done that’ and already answered those questions for themselves?
Good news! The ‘Ask Us Anything’ contest is giving high school students across Canada a chance to have their post-secondary questions answered by current college and university students! Click here to visit the website.
The best part? For submitting a legitimate question to be answered, you will be entered to win one of five ($50) Amazon.ca gift cards before the school year wraps up. (Deadline to submit is April 30, 2019)
