Living Arrangements for Out of Province Students

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Assuming classes are completely online in the Fall (which seems likely at this point), is anyone planning to live in their home province as opposed to moving to Kingston for the term?

 

I have seen the idea thrown around but it doesn't seem like the smartest idea. You would likely save some money in the end, but I imagine you'd miss out on a lot of the 1L experience, even despite the current situation (i.e. meeting new people, attending social events, familiarizing yourself with the campus/city, etc.).

 

I guess the potential for a hybrid, in-person class approach is another thing to consider (if they end up doing this at all). Would they conduct these in-person classes all at the end of the term for the classes that needed it? Or would they likely take place throughout the term at different points in time?

 

I would appreciate anyone's insight on the thought of staying in your home province for the term if it is completely online. 😊

 

Thanks!!

From the last official statement Queens put out, it's entirely possible it could be a hybrid.

Yeah I suppose I'm wondering if, even if it is hybrid, we would be required to live there for the entire term.. or if the in-person portion would be conducted at the end of the term and could be something we could just fly out for for a couple weeks. I guess only time will tell.

From what I’ve seen with other schools in Canada and the US, even if it is hybrid, the in class portions will be optional. So you wouldn’t be penalized if you don’t move and opt for distanced learning only.

Queen's just sent an official email out saying they are doing a hybrid model, but it will not be mandatory for everyone. Now that they have officially sent this email out, I anticipate that many people will move to Kingston. In terms of your concerns of missing out, I think if you don't move it will make it that much harder to bond with the people that do (which will likely be a majority of the students)

Yeah this was my exact thought too!

The most recent communication today makes it sound like it wouldn't be a problem to live in your home province (as the in-person portion will not be mandatory like you mentioned), however I still feel like it would be a mistake to pass up the somewhat hindered 1L experience.

Honestly I mostly skimmed through it, but they are planning a hybrid model but it will not be mandatory to attend the in-person component if you don't feel safe. Additionally, extra curriculars are probably going to happen in a modified way

They said that there will be in-person stuff in addition to the online courses but that if you didn't want to move because of health or family reasons, you can do the entire semester online. They would have arrangements made for the in-person stuff to also be online. As well as speaking events and the like.

I agree. We are having enough of 1L taken away from us, I don't think choosing to miss out on what's being given to us would be a great idea. Of course, these are just my personal opinions and everyone has unique circumstances amidst COVID

It depends where you are! I'm currently doing online classes from B.C. and I have to wake up at 7:00am for a 10am class. I'll be going back to Kingston in the fall, since 830am classes would not be feasible for me.

    • Maybe in the future things will change, but at the moment no law is applicable to this currency, and any other cryptocurrency in general. Law is a great specialty overall, so it's a great choice, but its connection with cryptocurrencies is questionable. On the other hand, the blockchain technology is going to expand in the future, so maybe a specialty related to security or online transactions can be useful. I think trading, in general, it's a remunerative activity because I've been performing eos canada transactions for a while, and it's a real source of income. As for me, it's your choice, but its lucrativeness in the future is doubtable.  
    • I would think they would just reject/accept or waitlist people at this point. I understand that they are holistic, but this is a bit ridiculous. I almost want to move on with life and be pleasantly surprised if they accept me, but I’m really running out of distractions thanks to all of this free time.
