Feeling the rush

Ask any CreComm what they think about the Creative Communications program and they’ll be quick to tell you how busy it is.

It’s no secret there’s no smooth sailing in the program, but student complaints about school being “busy” are nothing new.

Ask a full-time university student how they’re juggling their workload, and they’d be quick to complain about how swamped they are.

Between a million hours of assigned readings, midterms, and essays, life can seem stressful.

But try coming to CreComm, a program unlike any other offered in this province, and a million times harder than any university.

Some simplify it as a Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. kind of deal, but really there’s so much more to it, and that’s what hit me this week.

It’s not the being early for your 8 a.m. class, last-minute deadlines, piles of homework, or fierce marking that’s the hard part.

It’s the strive for perfection everyone in this program is (or should) be trying to meet while their minds are stretched to the max.

That’s the real challenge.

But why complain when overcoming it is what you signed up for?
