So tired of people complaining about PSY1101!
Lately on Facebook, a LOT of my friends have been making statuses complaining about their Intro to Psych classes:
To quote an amazing song, "Nobody said it was easy"
Is it hard to become a CA?@Anonymous
haha I’m not sure, I’ll let you know!
It is a very competitive program though, and you have to be bilingual from what I understand
Where are you planning to live next year?@Anonymous
Plan A) Become a CA or Building Rep so I can live in Rez again muahaha
Plan B) Get an apartment with one or two people
Plan C) Get a house with a few people!
do you pay 9.5 thousand for one semester?@Anonymous
No no no that was for the whole year, with food, and my upass and my residence and everything!
whats wrong with the meal plans?@Anonymous
Oh anon…oh sweet, naive, innocent anon..
See, the meal plans here have two options; you either get a ‘one semester’ meal plan, that lasts about four months, and costs around 1.5K.
I’m telling you right now, there is no way you’re going to spend $1500 on caf food at uOttawa in one semester.
Meal plans ‘expire’, so at the end of the four months - or if you do a full term meal plan, one year - you lose all the money that’s left on the meal plan. Everyone I’ve known that’s had the meal plan has said not to get it.
"But Chloe," you might be saying, "How do you expect me to eat? I’m in a double room in LeBlanc, and there’s no way for me to cook anything"
My solution? Flex dollars. You can buy caf food, along with food/drinks at any of the cafés/restaurants on campus, but these babies don’t expire, and they are reloadable, almost like a visa gift card. Instead of a meal plan, I convinced my parents to just give me 500 flex dollars. I’ve used about 275, and the year is almost halfway over.
If you are really, really into shwarma, pizza, burgers and fries, then get a meal plan. But there isn’t really any variety at the caf. The actual food isn’t bad, it’s just the fact that they never really switch it up, and there aren’t many “healthy” options at the caf. It’s up to you!
Me during psych exam:
|Me:||Oh..I know this! The answer's 4!|
|Exam:||a)5 b)7 c)8 d)9|
|Me:||Well, 5 is the closest to 4, so...|
hey! so deciding what schools and programs to apply to is proving to be really difficult, but uottawa has always been at the top of my list! i love that you're doing this and i think it is awesome! do you think we could have more pictures or a room tour video of 90u?@Anonymous
Hey! I’m sorry you’re having difficulty with it, but I’m glad uOttawa is at the top of your list <3
Of course I can do a room tour of 90U for you, if you would find that helpful! My room is a little messy right now, but expect a new video within the next few days :)
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
do you like 90u? do you know what any of the other residences are like?@Anonymous
I loooove 90U. It’s a little more expensive than other traditional residences, but if you ask me it was worth the splurge. I have a cute room, great view, great roommate, my own shower….
Because I have a fridge and a hot plate, I didn’t get a meal plan, which saved me a looooottt of money. (While we’re on this topic, don’t get a meal plan!!)
