Update: The Question Period Has Finished. What Happens Next?

Wow. That was a crazy month of April. 

What started off with a 'what if' scenario, quickly turned into more than 300 high school students submitting their questions to be answered. 

Now they need to be answered...

Throughout the month of May, the Students Offering Support volunteers will be answering your questions. 

Many questions were similar in nature, so we will be creating different categories of responses to your questions. 

Using the email you used when submitting your question, myBlueprint will email you by no later than June 15th with a link to go and view the responses. 

If you were one of the lucky winners of one of the five Amazon.ca gift cards, you will also be notified by email by June 15th. 

In the interim, you can read up on Student Offering Supports 10 (Useful) Tips for Transitioning to Post-Secondary.

The '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! 

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)
