yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
I am currently a second year student in an Ontario uni but really don't like my program so I am looking to transfer. Which of the two schools would be better in terms of the social aspect, reputation as well as which city for general living as I like both of the programs the schools offer, both would be for a bachelor of science specializing in agriculture or environment. Also just any advice or info on any of the schools or transferring would be helpful too! Thanks.
So here's the deal, I got 13 days to accept my offer to either UBC or SFU. I got into the Faculty of Arts at UBC, and I'm hoping that in second year I can do Global Resource systems there. I also got into SFU's bachelor of Environment program: Global Environmental Systems. Both offers are extremely enticing and I'm torn between the two. The thing is though; I can't seem to figure out the difference between the two programs. Does anyone know how the jobs/career would differ between the two programs? How is the student life at both universities? Is there anyone here in any of these programs? Thanks for any help. I really appreciate it!!!
