4 ways to get immersed into campus life

By Angel Torres on April 24, 2024

Starting at a new school may feel daunting. Here are different ways to immerse yourself into NAIT’s vibrant campus life. Before you know it, the first semester has passed and these were the best parts of those four months. 

  • Go to the NEST

Would it even be college if there wasn’t a spot where students can hang out during lunch or even after classes to relax, have a pint (or iced tea), talk about class and play pool? The NEST eatery is located in the S building by the activities centre and it is open Monday to Friday. The eatery opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 3:00 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays. From Wednesday to Friday, it opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m.

If you’re not the eatery-after-school type of person, There are always clubs. Joining clubs can be fun and there’s a lot of upsides to it. You can pursue a hobby, learn more about what you’re passionate about, meet new people and reduce your stress by having fun. If NAIT doesn’t have a club you’d like to join, you can also start your own!

Joining a club may be daunting and may take up too much time so why not check out events? There are always events hosted all around campus. It’s also convenient that all you have to do is go to and RSVP to the one you’d like to attend. Maybe you want to play some Dungeons & Dragons. Maybe you want to make a bee hotel during sustainability week. Whatever floats your boat, you can RSVP to whichever event you want and show them your NAIT event pass when you get there.

  • Explore different buildings on campus with classmates

If any of the other options seem like they’re too time-consuming or they use up too much energy, a little campus exploration won’t do any harm. There’s no time commitment. It’s nice if your classes are in the same building every single day. You may stumble upon places you’ve heard of but not yet visited. It’s fun, relaxing, and walks with your classmates make a great bonding time.

If you haven’t done any of the above, I recommend doing so in the next term.
