A new year on the calendar means that it’s a great time to kick off another semester and set some goals for the next few months. This year seems to be the one when students stay focused on their school tasks, while also remembering to recognize the importance of their well-being.

Here are some Ryerson students and their goals for this semester:

“My goal for this semester, I would say, is to find an opportunity to help me grow in my profession, business management, or any kind of management. I would love to find a mentor or people who can help me out.”

“My goal is to be more social and more involved with the school. I want to make more friends and do more down here because I am a commuter, so I don’t really [spend much time] here.”
