Vibrant University Life: Alumni Panel Discussion

Emily Tang

On the afternoon of April 26, 2024, Highland Academy of Canada hosted a special panel discussion, in which we welcomed back five previous alumni to share their experiences at the University of Toronto. The discussion provided current students valuable insights into university life such as; application processes and deliberating a major. The alumni detailed their academic and social life at the University of Toronto, covering a variety of topics such as learning methods, accommodations, club activities, and other academic challenges. They also provided advice on how to properly pick a university and provided educational websites and links to help weigh your options. The alumni also emphasized the importance of early career planning as well as setting realistic goals for your future.

This sharing session sparked widespread interest among the students, who eagerly asked questions and conversed with the alumni, seeking practical advice and experiences. This discussion gifted students a rare opportunity to hear these experiences firsthand, which undoubtedly increased their enthusiasm for future university life along with highlighting the challenges they may face and giving them options to face these challenges head-on.

Highland Academy of Canada is fervidly committed to our student's development and will continue to tirelessly provide platforms for engagement with alumni and the broader community, thus supporting students in achieving academic and career success.
