Name: Brandon Saikali

Program: Veterinary technician program, second semester

Thoughts on midterms: “They were not too bad. They were a bit of a mess but not too bad. I have two done and two after the break. I’m not too stressed.”

Plans for the break: “I plan to stay at home and relax. I don’t want to leave the house if I don’t have to.”

Name: Nureet Nureet

Program: Dental hygiene program, third semester

Thoughts on midterms: “They are very overwhelming. Way more stressful than they were before COVID. We have less time on our tests and it’s just harder to catch up.”

Plans for the break: “I’ll be studying for the entire break. Right now for me there is no such thing as a midterm break.”

Program: Construction engineering technician program, third semester

Thoughts on midterms: “I am incredibly stressed. I have had lots of assignments and tests. I find that online school is harder because it’s harder to talk to the prof to ask them specific questions.”

Name: Michael Glass

Program: Paramedic program, fourth semester

Thoughts on midterms: “I don’t have any midterms right now because all of our classes are self-directed. Normally fourth semester would be mostly in-field work but the start of that was pushed back with COVID-19.”

Plans for the break: “Because my classes are self directed I don’t really get a midterm break either. I have some case study assignments I’ll be working on and I have a hiring test with Ottawa Paramedic Service next week.”

Name: Tristan Maude

Program: Tourism – travel Services program, fourth semester

Thoughts on midterms: “I got pretty lucky, none of my classes this semester have midterms.”

Plans for the break: “I just want to relax and take a break from working.”
