Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

“What to do with your BA?”

March 10, 2021

The Ontario Tech Humanities Society, also known as the OTHS, is the governing body for the Faculty of Social Sciences & Humanities (FSSH) at Ontario Tech University. As an organization, one of their missions is to educate FSSH students about career opportunities in their respective fields. Their biggest event of the year, which now on its 10th anniversary, is “What to do with your BA?”. The aim of the event is to help students navigate their post-graduation options. Each year, the OTSU brings together a number of experienced professionals to participate in a discussion around the topic of how they explored their options and how they decided on the career path they are currently pursuing. This year the event will be taking place on March 16 at 6 p.m. Check out Ontario Tech Humanities Society on Facebook for more information.

Watch my interview with Michael, the Director of Events for the Ontario Tech Humanities Society to learn more about OTHS’s upcoming “What to do with your BA?” event. 

Introduce yourself and your role with the OTHS

My name is Michael Di Lorio. I am a second-year student in the Political Science program and a minor in sustainability studies. I am a part of the Ontario Tech Humanities Society, OTHS for short and my role is the Director of Events. My main role is to fill out event forms for the OTSU so that the OTHS can actually host events as well as help the team wherever I can.

Can you tell us a little about the “What to do with your BA” event?

I would love to talk about this event! This is an event that the OTHS does annually, it's their biggest event of the year! The reason that the “What to do with your BA” event is so amazing for any undergraduate student, especially upper years, is because it can help them understand what they may potentially want to do with their careers. Seeing former Ontario Tech alumni and where they are with their careers can help current students realize that there are so many options out there and that they're not limited. The possibilities are truly limitless.

How will students be able to register once the event is live?

Look out for the Ontario Tech Humanities society social media page @ontariotechhs because they have been posting updates about the “What to do with your BA event” as well as announcing all of the panellists in attendance. Go and register because you will not want to miss this event!
