2017 Road Warrior Series: Danielle

DanielleEveryone give a warm welcome to Danielle, an enthusiastic and vibrant Liaison Officer who graduated from the Bachelor of Science program. 

What is your favourite thing about U of G? What was your most memorable experience here?

My favourite thing about the U of G is how everyone insists on holding the doors open for you with a smile, even if you are 20 feet away; they will wait for you 99% of the time. 

My favourite course was Pathology, where we were given the task of determining which disease had caused death for different aquatic species and had to make case reports for real world fish farmers. It was a collaborative effort among the students and TAs; and we got to work super closely with our prof using the equipment over at the Ontario Veterinary College. Looking back it was truly a great example of the collaborative and supportive environment the U of G has to offer.

Please describe your campus & community involvement while at U of G (i.e. clubs, athletics, student organizations, jobs).

I’ve played almost every intramural sport over the years. Ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, and soccer were my favourite. I have QUITE a few gryphon t-shirts that students have designed every year; it's always exciting to see what the new design is going to be. I also made many life long friends and future roommates through intramurals.

I also worked as an Animal Surveillance Technician at the Ontario Veterinary College taking care of the research animals on campus; as well as volunteering within the Pathology labs.

What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer? What excites you the most about this position?

I will forever see myself as a University of Guelph graduate, and believe in the opportunities a good education in a good environment can provide future students. I hope to be able to share my story in a fun way with other students in order to give them the opportunity to have the best university experience; and maybe even get the chance to improve their lives.

What advice would you offer to potential U of G students?

I would say to find a program that speaks to you; there is so much flexibility, so even if you can't see where it will take you in life, you will receive many opportunities despite which program you choose. Also, get involved as much as you can in both extracurricular activities and academics so you can network on all levels. You will be surprised at all the amazing relationships you will make.
