The average college freshman changes their major seven times. It's okay if you don't know what to be. But work on finding out what you want. Childhood was the time for well-rounded approaches, but as a young adult, you'll need to narrow your focus in order to achieve excellence. Getting by will not attract the right connections and opportunities you'll need to enter the job market.

Gender inclusivity isn't about young people being too "sensitive," as a professor at the University of Toronto would have us believe. It is about people having access to facilities that many of us take for granted. And it is about dignity. It is about human rights.

Leaving home, new classes, new friends and new activities, it can be a lot to handle. While attending post-secondary school is an exciting chapter in anyone's life, it can also be a transitional period for students experiencing it all for the first time.

If you think travel is all about eating banana pancakes and lying by the beach, then you're very mistaken. Travel is all about stretching yourself in ways you wouldn't each day. What's an adventure you've always had on your bucket list? Maybe it's summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro or sailing across the Caspian Sea -- whatever it is, it will be sure to add some 'oomph' to the 'additional interests' section of your résumé.

The winter semester has just ended, and instead of feeling relaxed and elated, I feel tense, exhausted and utterly tortured. The last few months of university had proven to be extremely challenging for me. I could barely manage to stay afloat.

The rise and fall of BlackBerry is a well-documented. The BlackBerry was an iconic product and a Canadian tech success story. However, with the launch of the iPhone in 2007, Apple went beyond handsets and showed that the real value lay in what is called by product marketers, the whole product.

Success in higher education depends on attracting highly qualified professionals -- graduate students, researchers, and professors -- to universities. In a world dominated by brands, Canadian universities lag far behind their American and European counterparts to attract global talent to Canada.

Don't Let Yourself (Or Your Kid) Be The Next BlackBerry

David Finch | Posted 09.13.2016 | Canada Business
David Finch

As former marketing professionals, we are struck by the parallel between the formative years of young adults and product design. Delivering a valuable product is rarely about a single feature (such as a degree), rather, it's about the "whole product."

Militaries come and go, regimes rise and fall. But the social change that comes from education is irreversible. Every teacher capable of inculcating curiosity in a young mind, every individual who persists in questioning, every student who learns new ideas and spreads them to others, is a menace to the Taliban's plans.

If you're a freshman, you must be getting ready to spread those wings and fly. But let's make sure you land on your feet when you get on campus. The first step is walking into your new dorm room like you own the place. This is your room now and for it to feel like it, it needs to look like it. After all, you can tell a lot about a person by their room, and you want to attract the right kind of attention with your mature taste and good sense of style.
