Clarey, who is in his fourth year at Durham College, says he never imagined he would be playing varsity volleyball, since it was never one of his first interests when he was younger.  Growing up as a hockey and baseball player, he began to play volleyball in grade 11.  His love for the sport grew, which sparked the interest to continue playing in college.

Can you get different reactions from the same assignment?

Thousands of dollars later, this should be the best opportunity and experience of my life. I have tried to take advantage and make the most out of my time at Durham College, but sometimes I feel like I’m being held back.

Positive feedback feels nice and great marks make me happy, but recently I have felt discouraged and let down. The positive feedback and great marks continue, but I’m realizing that negative feedback and harsher marking schemes are what I needed.  Negative feedback could have been constructive criticism and harsher marking schemes might have made me work harder to achieve a better grade.

Our professors have helped us a lot in our efforts to find placement and without them I likely would have given up a long time ago.  Thankfully everything worked out for me, but I know others that are struggling to find something.
