Life beyond the classroom

Aiden Dufty


University is more than just attending classes, studying and then going home though it's easy to get swept up by that feeling! It's important to make memories and have fun during your time at university. It can be tricky to know where to start, luckily for you, I'm a procrastinator and have spent ample time finding anything to do that isn't studying!  So, I've got a few tips to ensure you have the best possible time at university. 


Join a club or society

We've got so many clubs that you are sure to find one that piques your interest! Whether you are into gaming, anime, music or something else you are sure to find the perfect fit for you. Clubs and societies come in all different shapes and sizes for all different students. For example, we have the International Student Association that aims to grow the community between domestic and international students. There's also The Stitching Nook that focuses on crocheting and stitching! There are so many on the list that you will likely find that more than one is the perfect fit for you! If you can't find any that seem interesting, then why not start your own? It's super easy and the Ontario Tech Student Union (OTSU) site walks you through the steps to make starting your club easier!

Ontario Tech offers a vibrant athletics program that provides students with the opportunity to stay active, compete, and be a part of a supportive community. From basketball to soccer, hockey to volleyball, the university has a variety of options to choose from. Plus the fantastic facilities and dedicated coaches make it easy for students to get involved and excel in their sport of choice. If teams aren't really your thing then why not hit up the campus gym or ice centre to get some exercise in on your own? Lace up your sneakers, grab your gear, and get ready to experience the thrill of athletics at Ontario Tech University.


No matter your interests there is so much to do during your time in university. It's important to unwind and have some fun in between your studies and Ontario Tech provides ample opportunities for students to explore their interests and gain new exciting experiences. Dont miss out on these fantastic opportunities!
