What is Sheridan’s CCR???
Sheridan offers its students numerous opportunities to engage in activities outside of the classroom and academic studies. CCR is an institutional document that formally recognizes a student’s participation and involvement in such activities.
The opportunities directory provides you with all the details of currently available activities. For instance, the duration of available activities, the campus at which the activities will take place, the responsibilities involved in becoming a participant, an average weekly time commitment, and the minimum number of participation hours required to add the activity to your CCR record. The activities list in the directory includes student leadership development programs, community engagement activities, student life programs, athletics, project teams, and research.
What are the benefits of having a CCR?
CCR would benefit you when applying for jobs, internships, bursaries and scholarships as it would be concrete evidence of your involvement and participation in professional development as well as activities in the community.

So, picture this. You’re in the Business Administration – Marketing program (or any program), and you’re not sure if you want to become a marketing coordinator, or a social media manager, or a sales representative… Or maybe you want to go on to get your undergrad degree, heck, maybe even a masters? Can you get a PhD in marketing? Wait, maybe I don’t even want to go into marketing. I’ve always thought that I’d make a great Software Engineer. 🤔
If this sounds like you, it’s time to take a trip to the career counsellor. The career counsellors on campus can help you with:
- Career testing & assessment.
- Exploring career options, finding direction.
- Research & evaluation of career alternatives, setting career goals.
- Labour market information, outlooks & future trends.
- Planning further education (university, college programs, transfer agreements, apprenticeships, etc.).
Appointments are typically a half hour in length, and can be booked in the Centre for Student Success (Trafalgar: B104, Davis: B230, HMC: A247). The sooner you book, the sooner that you can start taking the right steps on your career path whether that be looking for an internship, or filling out a university application.
Hopefully this gives you some direction on… where to find direction. ↗️
All the best!
We are already in week 6 of our classes. I know everyone is getting busy with lots and lots of assignments, tests, quizzes, group projects… and how can I forget about the upcoming mid-terms! Despite all of the course load, many of us are also working part-time. Of course, all these things form an integral part of our everyday college routine, but is this what student life is all about??? Or, do we have some super powers that will help us to cope with all the stress? Yes, we do have some super powers that make our student life fun and amazing! I have listed my top three below:
- Determination: I keep myself determined, no matter what the circumstances are, I try my hardest to extract the best out of any situation because I believe no victory is possible without determination!
- Friends: My friends are the stars that make my student life glitter. They provide me with help and support when I need it the most.
- Social connections: I know if you have friends, you’re a social person, but what I mean by social connections is the networking that you build when you step outside of your comfort zone. I strengthened my networking by ‘getting involved’. Sheridan provides tons of options to get involved on-campus either by joining clubs, through volunteer activities, or by participating in campus-wide events.
Let me know about your top three super powers that make your student life happy and bright!

Welcome back everyone!
It’s the start of a new semester. Whether this is your first or second (or third or fourth) semester at Sheridan, this is the time where everyone is getting organized and settling into a new schedule. Below are two things to keep in mind that can help you have a really great semester!
- Ask questions: You are in charge of your education- don’t be afraid to ask questions! This could be in the area of academics, finances, extra-curricular or anything else. Ask, ask ask. There are lots of people who can help you out! Professors, peers, peer mentors, student advisors, the financial aid office, office of the registrar- the list goes on!
2. Take initiative: For some people, this is really easy, and for others this can be really hard. I get it. Taking initiative, though, is a really great skill to develop. It helps you grow, personally, it makes you more visible to professors and future employers, it gives you a sense of control, and, in the long run, it can reduce stress. Here are a few ideas of areas where you can take initiative this semester:
- PROJECTS AND ASSIGNMENTS: offer ideas in group projects, be proactive, get a head start when possible, challenge yourself to go above and beyond in your work, hand in your work on time!
- SCHEDULE: stay on top of your work (volunteer commitments, academics, part time jobs, etc), find a good system of organization, and show up to class
- PRIORITIZE: figure out what your priorities are. Narrow down what you want to commit time to and what opportunities you are willing to let pass. Do you want to join a club, or do you need to commit more time to studying? Do you have a part time job? How many hours a week do you need to do x,y,z? Is there anything you are doing right now (that you don’t have to do) that you can maybe drop? Try to get the clearest idea possible of your priorities early on in the semester. This can take some trial and error to discover, though, so cut yourself a bit of slack!
Some of these things might seem obvious, but little things like going to class and doing assignments on time really add up to benefit you in the long run!
