|Argonauts football action from Rogers Centre in Toronto as Seneca summer students look on.|
By: Imran Rhemtulla, Seneca Recreation Reporter
The summer is usually a time to relax, kickback and enjoy the beautiful weather Toronto has to offer.
Thankfully, that's also been the case for those who are attending summer school at Seneca during the day.
The college offers recreational programming year-round because it understands how hard students work and the dedication they demonstrate in the classroom - and that an integral part of the college experience is getting involved and meeting new people.
Alongside academic offerings, Seneca also delivers unparalleled student services like campus recreation programming and events that give students a chance to leave the busy work-day behind for a couple of hours to enjoy some activities that allow students to make friends and have a good time.
The latest of these activities was a Toronto Argonauts game which took place at Rogers Centre in mid-July. The recreation crew at Seneca, led by coordinator Shannon Wright, alongside an enthusiastic group of Seneca students from all four major campuses, were very happy to have witnessed a Canadian Football League game; some for the very first time! Toronto was facing the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Seneca's students were part of an excited crowd that generated loud cheers and the occasional "booooo!" for the visiting team.
The best part of the evening, however, was with minutes to go in the game, with the home team trailing, Toronto rallied into the endzone to win it! The homecrowd including the students from Seneca (especially the first-timers) let out cheers that rocked the quietest parts of the stadium.
Seneca students couldn’t stop talking about the fun they had and what an amazing night it had turned into.
Colin, a pilot in his last year at Seneca, described himself as a huge Argonauts fan.
“This outing has been so much fun and I hope Seneca has more events like this one, especially at Argos games, because it’s just so much fun watching them!”
