2016 Road Warrior Series: Steven Kavaratzis
Steven is a new face to the Road Warrior team, and one that you'll be very lucky to have come to your school. You'll witness Steven's enthusiasm for U of G as soon as he begins his presentation! He is a Bachelor of Arts graduate, majoring in Theatre and Environmental Governance. He was also EXTREMELY involved on campus, so you'll have to ask him about all of his experiences. You can also meet him this weekend at the Ontario Universities' Fair!
What is your favourite thing about U of G?
My favourite landmark at Guelph is the brick walkway that navigates students (and me) through campus, and their undergrad. Every time I stepped onto Winegard Walk I felt like anything was possible!
Please describe your campus & community involvement while at U of G (i.e. clubs, athletics, student organizations, jobs).
I was involved in Student Governments (Interhall Council, the Central Student Association), University boards (Chair of Hospitality Advisory Committee, University Judicial Board and University Centre Board), Residence Life and the Guelph Symphonic Choir.
What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer? What excites you the most about this position?
I wanted to become a Liaison Officer because I felt it was the perfect time to give back to the University that was integral in shaping my professional, academic and personal identity. I remember University shopping as being an exciting time, but also one that requires careful thought. I am ready to help you find the perfect fit!
What advice would you offer to potential U of G students?
“Picking out a University, and program, is like picking out a new shirt. It might look great in the window, on a hanger, or on someone else, but you won’t know if it’s right for you until you try it on. And when you do, don’t just buy the first shirt you try on, put on a few, and when you know, you’ll know!”
Give Steven a warm welcome for us, and let him help pick out the right "shirt" for you.
