How are the nuclear engineering students liking uoit?
And how are students liking uoit overall? Student life, res, profs etc
Can any nuclear engineering followers answer the first part?
I also encourage followers to add their input for the second part, too! Just remember that submissions should be respectful—don’t hold back if you think something’s an issue, just don’t be rude about it.
As for what I think… like most other universities, it’s a mixed bag. I personally liked UOIT, with some exceptions. I enjoyed my program, the compact size of the main campus is really convenient and the smaller class sizes made it really nice. I wasn’t that involved with the school, but there were lots of clubs and student associations that other people really enjoyed. In any case, whether you’re into partying (there’s plenty of that, so don’t worry) or not, I’m assuming it could be less daunting to make friends because of the smaller class sizes and the structure of Orientation Week.
Administration can be frustrating, but after complaining to friends who went to other universities, UOIT isn’t the only one who suffers from this issue. Things like the Centre for Disabilities and academic advising can be a real headache to deal with, and they definitely could use some improvement. Just because other schools have these issues doesn’t mean they don’t need fixing!
Rez can be a positive or negative experience depending on your luck and personality. I’m a fairly reserved person, so I didn’t do much socializing when I was in rez. Sometimes, the noise levels got really frustrating, and the RAs weren’t particularly helpful. Other people didn’t mind it so much, and even had a great time, though most people leave rez to rent the nearby student apartments and houses after first year. Gives a little more leg room, so to speak. There are plenty of rez events, and I remember there being movie and game nights, and stuff like that.
To be honest, it’s a hard question to answer because everyone experiences things differently. It’s cliched, but time and time again, I’ll say that university is what you make of it. Sure, particular things about a school can definitely affect your experience, but aside from stuff like the curriculum and profs and stuff, the rest is pretty much up to you.
