Meets my expectations.

I've been in Taylor's for about a year now. What I love most is meeting like-minded and friendly people and feeling like I actually fit in with my course. I also enjoy the subjects I'm taking, as well as being involved in the SHINE award program. It's nice that Taylor's seems to have an event of some sorts almost every week. It keeps things interesting. IMO, Taylor's has a great learning environment; I'm actually in the mood to study when I use the 24/7 silent rooms in the library. What I dislike about Taylor's is the expensive fees and smoking/vaping culture. 

Campus: It's very open-spaced, and it feels very freeing. However, when it rains very heavily, it's almost impossible not to get wet when you're walking in the hallways. I like the food provided at Block D and E (currypuffs, popcorn chicken, etc). Syopz Mall has 7-11, a stationery shop and plenty of restaurants (Complaint: food is pricey but delicious). I've eaten at Taylor's fine dining restaurants (Tangerine, Truffles, Thyme, Tarragon) several times, and I love the food there.

Lecturers: From my experience, most of my lecturers were great.They taught in an effective way and prepared notes, tutorials and workshops (for constructive criticism) for us to better understand the material. However, I've had one lecturer who constantly made snide remarks about my class, didn't teach the material properly because she expected us to know the subject already, had an impromptu quiz which carries 10% that was completely unrelated to the subject and etc.  I've also had one or two lecturers who knew the subject well but did not teach it well, sometimes told us stories unrelated to the topic and made the subject very uninteresting. 

Facilities: A few complaints here. As a member of a dance club, it disappoints me that Taylor's doesn't have dance studios. UniGym fees are expensive, and I don't think it's worth it. I like the PC labs, but I hate the Mac ones because the mouse sucks. I do like the X-Space classrooms though. SLC is a nice place to have discussions and relax..if you can find a place to sit. The library is huge; I go there often to do assignments, print out notes and assignments, watch movies in the theatrette and have group discussions with my coursemates. 
  
Extra-curricular activities: I strongly encourage getting involved in the Shine Award Programme. It takes a ton of effort (organizing events, attending conferences, workshops) but I feel like it really helped me to grow as a person and come out of my shell. If not that, maybe try joining a club to get out of your comfort zone. 

Tips: 
- If you're eligible, apply for a scholarship. I didn't and I regret it. 
- Get your assignments done asap. 
- Attend class and take notes. 
- Use the services they provide (Counseling Services and Career Services)

During LCS

When I was a student, it's located at LCS campus. resources are very limited while lecturer and staff are perfect with professional level. Now, Taylor's had became an well-known university with best facilities in town. The new lakeside campus is awesome.
