So I had to update you guys about my enrolment appoinment! Yes, I did go to my enrolment appointment which was on the 8th of December at 9 am.. I wasn't quite impressed with my selection of time slot since I had to get up super early but thanks to my dad who gave me a ride to York University! Thanks Dad, love you! So i reached school around 8:30.. I am going to include a campus map so you can have an idea of where your enrolment appointment be.
Note: My enrolment appointment was at Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies. Depending on your program, your appointment will be at the respective faculty. But if you are a LA&PS new student then you can read the map otherwise, skip it :)!
So if you haven't noticed yet, I was coming from the Finch Avenue towards Keele. Follow the orange Follow Me line and it would lead you to the where I got dropped off. Now you would see a lime green color Follow Me line right after the orange. Just to clarify, orange line stands for me in a car and green line shows how much I had to walk to my building which wasn't much, trust me!
After I got off the car, I just followed the signs on the Campus Walk (which is the green line) and the other thing I had was a Campus Map in my hand which is crucial if this is your first time coming to the university. It was my fourth time and I still carried it around with me. It is very easy to follow, I didn't get lost on my way to the LA&PS. So I reached there around 8:40, glad that I had made it on time. I went to the reception and they guided me to a room and two people were there already. I introduced myself to both of them, found out one of the girl was in my program. Lovely girl, must say! Then we heard somebody call us in to a small computer lab which was connected to the room, and the person was a student himself who was going to help us enrol in our courses. Oh wait, before we went in there we had to sign off an attendance sheet. I walked in with my new friend ( I think it's right to call her a friend, since we are trying to make the exact same schedule so we get to be together in all of our classes). We sat there, reading our program requirements and trying to understand but it didn't really make any sense until the presentation was given by our coach (the same student who guided us to the lab). He was very helpful and was ready to answer any questions we might have about our program and the degree requirements.
The enrolment appointment was fun, I think I asked probably most questions out of everyone there. Oh yeah, there were approxiametly 8 other people from different programs with us as well.
At the end of the appointment, me and my new friend (Nadia) exchanged numbers so we can stay in touch with each other. I didn't even have to try that hard to make friends at York. She was as nervous as I was until I said Hi to her and soon we found ourselves talking about everything! Women just can't keep their mouth shut :)!
There are some key things which you should do before your appointment:
- Carry a campus map with you, no matter how good are you with the directions.
- Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment.
- Have a pen and a notebook with you to jot down key points in there.
- Activate your Passport York (It's very easy, just go to www.yorku.ca and click on Current Students. On the right hand side, you would see a Passport York button,click that and have your stuff ready and activated before you get to your appointment since you would need that to make your timetables).
- Just smile and try to make friends, you never know you might find someone from your program like I did.
