2016 Road Warrior Series: Dan Nasso
Everyone give a big "welcome back" to Dan Nasso! After being a Liaison Officer last year, he's been an active member of the Admissions' team since. Being a Bob's Dogs enthusiast, he's immediately liked in the high schools he attends. Let's hope he visits yours!
What is your favourite thing about UofG?
My favourite thing about Guelph is the people. Our school seems to attract amazing students who are caring. I found it very easy to make friends here, and to this day some of my best friends are who I met on campus.
Please describe your campus & community involvement while at UofG.
I had an opportunity to be involved with Gryphon Camps, where I was a counsellor and eventually director of camps. It allowed me to develop skills and take on responsibilities that made me grow as a person. I also got pretty good at dodgeball!
I also was involved in intramural sports and found it to be a great way to stay active. It was a healthy distraction from school.
What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer?
I want students to experience what life is like at Guelph. From our academics to how to be involved on campus. I think it’s important that students not only succeed in the classroom, but also to have the chance to express who they are outside of the classroom.
What advice would you offer to potential UofG students?
Do your research! Ask lots of questions about what University life is like, and make sure you visit campuses to make sure that school is the right fit for you.
Also, be sure to have a meal on our campus. We have some really amazing food…I probably ate a bit too much of it.
We're don't joke about food, and neither does our friend Dan. He's en route to high schools from now until December - give him a warm welcome!
