Nicole's Story - Courses at a Regional College

Hi! My name is Nicole and I am from Swift Current. I was accepted into the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina. I have wanted to become a teacher ever since I was young.

I am now in my second year at the U of R.

I chose going to a local college for my first year because it allowed for the transition from high school into university to be smooth. I was still at my family’s house (which saved a lot of money), studying in the same spot I studied all through high school.

Another reason why I took my first year of university at Great Plains College was because the class sizes were small for my electives- I got to really know my professors and they got to really know us too.

I couldn’t take all of my classes face-to-face, so I took online courses!!

Online courses allowed me the flexible learning to complete my first year of university while all in Swift Current. Online courses taught me a lot about myself as a student and how I needed to manage my time accordingly. With flexible learning I also was able to work part time at the daycare I worked at for the past 4.5 years.

Flexible learning has allowed for an exciting alternative and I am very honored to have this opportunity.
