Introduction to Marketing – Fall 2019

I had a wonderful experience in my Dual Credit course. During my time, I met many new people that soon became my friends. Every week I was excited to go to Seneca to see my friends and learn about a class not offered at my high school. This course helped me decide on my postsecondary pathway into business marketing.

Overall, I highly advocate for taking a Dual Credit course because of the unique experiences you gain from studying on a college campus.

I've taken three Dual Credits at Seneca throughout my Grade 11-12 year of high school and It has been an amazing experience... The classes are great and there is a variety of courses to choose from. At first, I was unsure about the program as I had never taken part of the Dual Credit Program at Seneca but once I did, I always wanted to keep coming back. It's fun and gives you the chance to interact and meet new people and friends. I created long-lasting friendships with several of my peers in my Seneca Dual Credit Program... I got to experience what it was like to be in postsecondary.

My Dual Credit experience here was much enjoyed and I recommend joining especially at Seneca!

Design I: Composition and Creativity – Winter 2019

I am so fortunate to have taken the Dual Credit program while I was in high school because not only did I experience what a college course is like, I became reassured in my postsecondary pathways and decisions. Before taking the Dual Credit Program, I was indecisive over my postsecondary school plans, but while taking the course, it opened my eyes to the things I am most passionate about and want to pursue in the future. The professors were very enthusiastic and helped us every step of the way...

I would recommend the Dual Credit Program to anyone who is still unsure of their postsecondary plans because the experience will help you decide where to take the next step.

It was an amazing class. You get to see how the college environment is, get to learn about something you may want to study, and you can use the credit later on when you get into college! To my professor: I want to thank you for taking the time to teach each one of us, making us laugh through our screens, answering each question or concern we may have, and making things fun for all of us.

James Yeboah

Introduction to Psychology – Fall 2019

My Dual Credit experience was a transformational one. Although I had an idea of what I wanted to do — become a psychotherapist —I also desired to know what awaited me beyond the confines of high school. That was a desire that was both equally as liberating as it was terrifying to think about. However, when I took the opportunity and was actually in the course in 2019, Introduction to Psychology, it only reaffirmed my career.

My teacher was one of the most amazing people I’ve met for the simple fact that he was simply himself and honestly enjoyed his time teaching us. He cared about our success, which was evident by the variety of enthralling assignments we did, and the compelling readings we were assigned pertaining to human thought patterns and behaviour. All in all, it was simply an experience that has changed my life for the better.

Joshua Campbell

Dining Room Service Management – Winter 2019

The Dual Credit course I took changed my outlook for serving others and the different concepts and skills involved in cooking. Throughout the course of the program, in the different experiences, situations and activities I encountered, I had never gone through an experience that was so influential...

The attitude, perseverance and commitment promoted by my professor was amazing. He was always there to guide our thoughts to be intentional in what we said and offer a word of encouragement whenever needed.

I really enjoyed my course because it offered such a valuable experience and helped show me all the education and jobs options that could be pursued.

Jovan Wilson

Digital Design I – Winter 2019

At first, I was nervous to be in a postsecondary environment in 11th grade. But my Dual Credit leader helped make my experience a very enjoyable one. I always felt comfortable asking questions and my professor was very helpful whenever I had questions. The learning centre on campus with the library and computer area were helpful for when I needed to work on an assignment after class.

The Dual Credit scholarship also became very important to my postsecondary decision. I was very set on going to a university after high school until I realized that Seneca has all of the resources a university does and more.

“[Dual Credit] offered me an opportunity to join a college community and gain credits at the same time, so this program helped me completing my Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and join the college quicker than I expected.”

“The program also makes successful transitions to postsecondary college studies, and it provides orientation about college environment.” 

 

Myah Elliot

Introduction to Marketing – Fall 2018

“I would recommend this [Dual Credit] course to any high school student, no matter what they are planning for their postsecondary education. It is a simple way to get a taste of college life, and help you decide which path you want to go down. I am so happy I took this program.”

 

Lisa Lee

Applied Psychology of Learning and Careers – Winter 2020

“The content of the course was extremely useful and versatile. Before the pandemic started, everyone with different backgrounds willingly participated and was very engaged in class. It helped me be motivated and enthusiastic again. Even after the course had been turned into virtual class, each session was very informative with various types of visual materials. Of course, I could learn theories and knowledge, but the core part of taking this class was finding myself and figuring out how I can be successful both at school and work through practical strategies.”

 

Amina Kerim

“I can say that the whole experience and atmosphere I felt whenever I came to the campus were just positive and engaging.

“Overall participating in the Dual Credit Program gave me confidence and reassurance that Seneca is the right choice for me.”

“Seneca, for me personally, had a warm and welcoming energy to it and I was able to get more clarity and understanding of what it was that I wanted to do after high school.”

“I was so impressed and relieved that such a program …” that helps “people who need the accommodations is as great as it is. I was not judged or  treated less than because of my mental health."
