2017 Road Warrior Series: Jade

Posted: Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 12:24

JadeJade is returning to the Recruitment Team this year; she can't get enough of speaking to you #futuregryphons about U of G! Hailing from the Bachelor of Arts program with a major in Psychology, she will be sure to tell you how the University of Guelph can improve your life. 

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. 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 U of G. 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 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.
