  • What?1?!...I'm supposed to be in charge of myself?

    Sep 28, 2017
    The first few weeks of college or university can be a bit of a whirlwind. New people, classes, professors and routines conspire with long line ups and getting lost to completely fill up your days. You don't really have time to process. Transition seems to happen organically: I'm here, I'm at my class, I am chanting weird songs with my floor mates, I am commuting from home like a boss. Everything is great. But what happens when the roar starts to dim and you need to knuckle down, face the daily grind and try your hand at adulting? This is when the overwhelm can kick in. How do people eat healthy meals and work their part time jobs and study and meet new people and actually get to class on time? The great thing about all the campuses we visit is that they have built in resources (online or in person) to help you navigate your first year (and beyond!). And they are free!

  • The first day of the rest of your life!

    Sep 7, 2017
    Ok, that may be stretching things a bit. But it is the start of a new school year, and for many of you, the first steps into a whole new life: new courses, friends, possibly roommates, maybe even dorm life -- with no parents or guardians to run interference. It's time to get a taste of independence, leave high school behind and find out more about who you are. Take it all in. Go to events you'd normally never, ever, ever consider. Leave your door open and say hi to floor mates. Open yourself to new people, cultures, foods and clubs. And don't forget to check out what's happening on campus. This will be the hub of your universe for at least the next year, so avail yourself to all the campus resources on offer. There is a whole team of people working hard to make you feel at home. Check out Frosh events with fun group activities. Or club days, where you can shop around and join groups that resonate with you – from student issues, to politics to the environment. Or try something a little less heavy and sign up for intramurals (unless you are super competitive, then it's serious business).

  • Busy time at Humber College, North

    Feb 8, 2017
    What a reception the kts2 Team had at Humber! Students flocked to the table as soon as we were set up. I guess they heard scholarship because before we knew it they were responding with chants of “Say no more! We’re in!”

  • Cold and crisp as we make our way to Lakehead!

    Feb 3, 2017
    As the kts2 drives from campus to campus, we are pleasantly reminded of how unique each community is. Fortunate to able to visit Thunder Bay means that the sun doesn’t rise until after 8am and sets late in the day. On our way to Lakehead University we pull over to take in the views of The Sleeping Giant from Hillcrest Park and are blown away by the beauty!

  • A great visit to the University of Ottawa

    Jan 23, 2017
    What an absolutely treat to drive to our nation’s capital for a week of program delivery & how inspirational it was to drive past the Parliament grounds and City Hall covered in snow. And then to arrive on a campus with its beautiful stone fronts—we knew it would be a great visit. And it was. There were so many active clubs and organizations organized in the University Centre, alongside our kts2 display.

  • Ahhh...beautiful Sudbury on a Sunday

    Nov 16, 2016
    What a pleasure to take our time driving up to Sudbury & what a breathtaking drive it was. One of the amazing things about delivering the Know the Score 2 program is getting an opportunity to see parts of Ontario that one often doesn’t get to visit.
