Sheridan Creative Scholarship – Writing Contest Results

ImageGreetings and salutations,

This February we had the pleasure of running the first ever Sheridan Writing Contest and were stunned by all the wonderful submissions we received from our student community. We were thrilled to pour through the many poems, short stories, and long stories we received, and we spent many a night cuddled up with a computer on our laps diving into thrilling stories about aliens, time-traveling students, and realistic student perspectives.

We appreciate all the hard work and thought all the applicants put into their work and are pleased to announce the following three first place finishers.

1st Place Poem: “School Dazed” by Sarah Frank

1st Place Short Story: “The Obsolete Umbrella” by Jacqueline Geisler

1st Place Long Story: “A Mature Student’s Perspective” by Tiffany Persaud

Special mention goes out to all our applicants. It was a close race to decide the top three but we are pleased with our decision and can’t wait to run this contest again next year. Winners keep an eye on your Sheridan email because you will be receiving a special invitation to come pick your prizes and certificate soon.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

School Closure!!!

Good afternoon Sheridan,

When will winter go away? Yesterday we had beautiful 10 degree sunshine and now it’s snowing all over again. If you have to shovel when you get home remember to bend from the knees so as to protect your back.

Due to the worsening weather conditions Sheridan College will be cancelling all classes after 1pm today. If you are taking the shuttle back to another campus they will be running until 2pm. Please travel safely and remember to check the Sheridan homepage for news about tomorrows classes.

Champions!!!!!

What’s better than being champions? Well that’s easy…being champions twice.

ImageCongratulations to our Men’s OCAA Champion Basketball team as they hold their Ontario title against Algonquin in nail-biting final match up with a 76-75 finish. Phew talk about a close call. Head coach Jim Flack stated “We played really well and there’s nothing there to choose between the two teams — it came down to one shot with a win by one point. It’s a game of inches and the Algonquin Thunder is one of the most courageous teams we’ve faced all year. They wouldn’t go away, but I think we matched their courage and really it came down to who was going to make one play at the end.”

It is always an inspiring sight to see a team that has practiced so hard, triumphed over all the other competition and climbed their way to the top be successful in achieving an awe inspiring victory. Sheridan Bruins take a deep pride in the sports we play and the teammates we play with. Do you want to be a Sheridan Bruin?
