One of the most active departments on campus, especially in terms of engagement with students and social media presence, is our History Department!
The History Department at X offers tons of unique program opportunities. Students can enrol in concentrations in Medieval, European, Latin American, Canadian History and more, as well as Art History and Anthropology. Introductory courses in Western Civilization, Global History, and and the History of Canada offer first-year students plenty of options while discovering their interests. With professors who are passionate about each specialization and truly care about student success, I can personally attest to the greatness of this program.
I’m talking about the X-Ring, of course. The thing graduating students have been looking forward to for the past hundreds (or thousands) of days. Sure, degrees are cool too, but the ring! It’s so shiny and magical.
(As someone who’s typing this with sparkly gold metal already on her finger, I can fully attest to its magical powers.)
It’s absolutely true that once people see it on your finger, whether you’re down the street or across the world, you instantly have a connection. It’s a conversation starter, the best fashion accessory, a link to alumni from last year and last century, and potentially your new most cherished possession. K definitely your most cherished possession.
