2016 Road Warrior Series: Jade Sachdeva
U of G welcomes Jade to the 2016 Road Warrior team! As a Liaison Officer first-timer, you can already feel her enthusiasm for getting on the road, and chatting with each of YOU about what makes Guelph unique.
What is your favourite thing about U of G?
My favourite thing about U of G is that the minute I stepped on campus, I felt comfortable and at home and I think part of that comes from the physical beauty and green spaces.
Please describe your campus & community involvement while at U of G (i.e. clubs, athletics, student organizations, jobs).
I volunteered with the Peer Helper program for 2 years at Co-operative Education and Career Services where I was both a regular peer helper as well as a senior peer helper. I also worked at Alumni Advancement and Development as a student caller and a student caller supervisor for a total of 2 years.
What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer? What excites you the most about this position?
I loved my time at the University of Guelph, and I want to be able to show students the great time they would have here if they chose Guelph. It is a beautiful campus, with endless opportunities to fit each person. To be able to share my love for the university and show a potential student just how well they would fit into campus would be very rewarding and exciting.
What advice would you offer to potential U of G students?
Get involved at while in school. Obviously classes are important, but some of my best memories are with the people I met while volunteering and helping better campus and the community around us.
Isn't she great? And look at that face! Hailing from the Bachelor of Arts, Psychology program, keep your eyes peeled for Jade in the next couple of months.
