The excitement of Orientation is still running strong as students return to campus ready to face the challenges of a new school year.
For many, the decision to come to Humber is about getting one step closer to their dream job.
Manu Joy, an international student from India in Canada for the first time, believes that the Culinary Management program is his key to one day opening his own restaurant.
“I completed a degree in hospitality management but I decided I wanted to specialize in culinary,” said Manu. “From what I’ve already learned about Humber in my first week, I think it’s going to help me become a great chef.”
Noah Okiror, a first-year student in the Fitness and Health Promotion program, has plans to improve community health.
“I’m looking forward to learning more about health promotion and getting involved with the community,” said Noah. “My goal is to help people from low-income areas be healthy without costly gym fees.”
For Rebeca Hartmann Epp, a Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training student, the first week experience was everything she hoped for.
“It was so exciting getting to meet the captains and the chief and learning all about the responsibility behind wearing the cool uniform,” said Rebeca. “I’m excited for the hands-on work we’ll be doing in second semester, especially the burn tower.”
