Explore extracurricular activities, week 5!
Continuing the series from earlier this week, here are a few activities that some institutions offered last year in their fifth week of Explore. These are both ESL and FSL institutions, and the featured activities may or not have been free.
- Brock University took Explore participants to Canada’s Wonderland, the country’s largest theme park, with 16 roller coasters and a 20-acre water park.
- Collège Saint-Charles-Garnier held a kermesse, which is a type of fair or festival that originated in medieval times in the Low Countries (Holland, Belgium, Flanders) and northern France and included feasting, dancing, and sports. Meanwhile, students at l’École de français du Cégep de Trois-Rivières walked on the wild side at Granby Zoo, home to over 225 species of native and exotic animals and one of Quebec’s major tourist attractions.
- York University’s Glendon College held a fun and creative graffiti night, while participants at Université de Montréal laughed their way through one of the Juste pour rire [Just for Laughs] comedy shows.
- Students at Université de Saint-Boniface went to St. Malo for a relaxing picnic, and artistic students from Université de Sherbrooke painted a mural on a tunnel wall.
- Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) students danced under the stars at the Festival international de jazz de Montréal, and aspiring singers from the University of New Brunswick performed at a glee club concert!
- University of Regina students attended the Cathedral Village Arts Festival, a local celebration of the arts, life, and the spirit of community. For one week each year, residents of the Cathedral Village area invite their Regina neighbours, as well as visitors from afar, to celebrate the gifts that arts and culture bring to our communities.
