A Year in the Life of Bianca
Hi, I’m Bianca.
I love meeting new people and learning new things (although I can be shy at first). This is why I’m excited to have the opportunity to get to know McMaster’s donor and alumni community through this project.
I have received bursaries, and to the donors I would like to give a huge thank you. Knowing that I have the support in terms of bursaries shows me that my education is important and encouraged.
I’m in second year Labour Studies.
I chose to attend McMaster because it’s a beautiful campus, very diverse and it is a very well respected university…I also look good in maroon.
This year I am excited to learn new things especially about my program and what I can do with my studies in my future. I’m also excited to meet new people and hopefully get more involved within the school!
September was a great month of fun and hard work.
With Homecoming and events around campus the first months of school are always exciting! More exciting things to come as this year continues.
This fall at Mac
This fall has consisted of hard studying, late nights finishing essays and assignments, and enjoying time with friends.
I spent time during fall reading week at home in Stratford Ontario with my family catching up and also doing work and studying for midterms!
I also took the time to explore more of Hamilton and visited Dundas Peak.
My favourite place on campus
has to be the room full of trees and surrounded by windows found on first floor of the Michael G. Degroote Centre for Learning and Discovery. It's very relaxing and beautiful in that room, and I love that it feels like you are outside when you're inside.
Who's inspiring me?
Dr. Teal McAteer has been one of my favourite professors this semester. I find her engaging and she makes the material very interesting. It's evident that she really cares about her students which is very important for me.
Women's Studies class
This fall for my Women's Studies class we had guest speaker, Tara Thorne, who played some cover songs from Alanis Morrisette's album Jagged Little Pill!
The arts quad at night
I took this picture after finishing a class in Kenneth Taylor Hall. Might bring back some memories for grads who took this same walk when students at Mac :)
Studying for finals at Innis Library (business library)
At McMaster, my classes and professors are a huge help to me realizing my potential and gaining information about what my program entails and what I am able to do with it.
I also am aware of multiple volunteer opportunities that are available at McMaster that can help me gain experience while also gaining insight to the importance of volunteer work. I’d like to volunteer next semester or during my third year depending on my school schedule.
A new semester brings new opportunities
This semester brings new classes that I have been really enjoying so far. I am taking two labour studies courses, introduction to statistics, Human resource management and a religion course. This semester I decided to get a membership to the gym on campus in the David Braley Athletic Centre which I am very excited about as it’s a beautiful gym with lots of different activities to get fit.
