Know Your Peer: Jessa Dalit

We’re back! It’s the fifth week of the Know Your Peer spotlight! In these posts, we interview one of the peer mentors to get their perspective on working as a Peer Mentor, studying at Sheridan and life outside of school!

This week’s post features Jessa Dalit, a first year Peer Mentor from the Hazel McCallion Campus!

What program are you in?

Business Administration- Accounting Advanced Diploma

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school or helping students?

Cooking, watching documentaries and spending time with my family.

Fun fact about you? (Talent, etc;):

I want to open a food truck selling sandwiches in the future!

How long have you been a Peer Mentor for?

This is my first year as a peer mentor.

Why did you decide to become a Peer Mentor?

I wanted to become a peer mentor for various reasons. One reason is because I wanted to leave my mark on Sheridan College. The other significant reason for my desire to become a peer mentor is because I wanted to maximize the student experience for others in a positive way and becoming a peer mentor has allowed me to do so.

What was your first year like?

Having gone to other post-secondary institutions, I wasn’t new at this college/university thing. I thought I understood what was expected of me as a student. It wasn’t until my first week at Sheridan when I realized what was really expected of me. Throughout my first year, I was consistently inspired to do my best and think “Big”. What this meant was thinking beyond my current intellectual abilities and see what I could potentially be or do five or ten year from now. To this day, I continue to use this mentality to motivate me to do well in school. In addition, being more involved with Sheridan has also given me more reasons to aspire great things for my future.

Any tips you can share from experience?

I’ve got two tips! My number one tip would be: Start studying NOW. Some students think that they don’t need to study until exam time approaches. What I found beneficial was to take notes in class and study them as soon as I got home. When I did this, I began to understand the simpler concepts earlier and the tougher ones were a piece of cake! You’ll be surprised how much less you have to cram once exam time comes. My second tip would be: Ask questions! I cannot stress this tip enough. I’ll admit, in high school when I didn’t understand something the instructor was teaching- I would wait till I got my tests back to see what the right answer was. It’s a little different in college. Not only are you investing your time however you are investing hard earned money and there are no free do-overs or second chances. Your education is something that no one can take away from you, so do it well!


Three early goals power Sheridan Bruins past St. Lawrence into semi final

October 20, 2014

Although they didn’t quite put together the complete 90-minute performance they always strive for, a trio of goals in the first half hour was more than enough to propel the Sheridan Bruins men’s soccer team (7-1-1 OCAA) to a 4-1 quarter-final victory over St. Lawrence College.

“We played alright. We started off really strong early on, but after that and in particular in the second half, we kind of struggled,” said Bruins head coach Andrew Seuradge. “I don’t know if it was because of the wind or if the boys just thought the game was over, but we held them off the scoresheet for most of the game and got the result, so that’s the important part at this time of year.”

Sheridan’s David Velastegui got the team off to the early start, curling a free kick from just outside the area past the St. Lawrence keeper.

Three minutes later Molham Babouli from Sheridan was able to tack on a second one, while Khody Ellis and Raheem Edwards rounded out the scoring for the Double-Blue.

St. Lawrence was able to pull one back late on a Gabe Jones goal, but it proved to be too little and too late. The Bruins will move on to the OCAA Championship tournament hosted by Niagara and face the East Division’s top squad during the regular season, Algonquin, in the semi final.

Seuradge says his side has a tremendous belief in their abilities, but that they also understand the dangers that the East Division champions can offer. “We know they’re a really high quality team, but when you get to this stage of the season you’re always expecting to play high quality opponents,” he said. “We’ll try to focus on doing what we do, and maybe take the time this week to focus on some detail things.”

If the Bruins win their semi-final game on Friday at 11 a.m., the championship game will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 25 at the Youngs SportsPlex in Welland. Live-streaming of OCAA games is available athttp://ocaatv.com/

Know Your Peer: Melanie Harford

It’s the fifth week of the Know Your Peer spotlight! In these posts, we interview one of the peer mentors to get their perspective on working as a Peer Mentor, studying at Sheridan and life outside of school!

This week’s post features Melanie Harford, a first year Peer Mentor from the Davis Campus!

What’s your name?

Melanie Harford.

What program are you in?

Office Administration – Medical.

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school or helping students? 

I like playing with my cat, Gizmo.

Fun fact about you? (Talent, etc;):

How long have you been a Peer Mentor for? 

This is my first year as a Student Advisement Peer.

Why did you decide to become a Peer Mentor? 

I really enjoy helping people. I know my first year was a bit nerving and it was nice to know that I had one point of contact I could always depend on. I wanted (and now am) that person for the first year students.

What was your first year like?

I had been to college in the past and the nervous feeling never changes. I was more prepared this time and got into the flow of things rather quickly. I made friends my first week (and my friends just keep growing as I get more involved in school). I also got use to the school and the quickest ways to get to class in about a week.

Any tips you can share from experience? 

Be prepared. Do things in advance and don’t wait until the last minute. Seek help if you need it as there is tons of assistance here at Sheridan. Don’t be afraid to ask!
