What is your favourite thing about U of G? What was your most memorable experience here?
My favourite thing about the UofG is the balance of academics, athletics, and student life. I was actively in involved in the Guelph community and it was the people that I met throughout these experiences that made my undergrad so memorable! One of my favourite memories form being a student is painting the cannon during the 1st year!
Please describe your campus & community involvement while at U of G (i.e. clubs, athletics, student organizations, jobs).
With so many opportunities to get involved on the campus, I made sure to try a bit of everything! I was a tour guide, athlete on the novice rowing team, and a student rep for my program where I spoke to prospective students and families at Campus Day Open House Events. My favourite job on campus was running the Admission SnapChat account during my 4th year!
What prompted you to become a Liaison Officer? What excites you the most about this position?
I am extremely passionate about the University of Guelph and wanted the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience about the school to prospective students. I cannot wait to start the travel season and to meet the #futuregryphons
What advice would you offer to potential U of G students?
Come and visit our beautiful campus, the vibe at the UofG isn’t something that I can describe, you have to come feel it for yourself! The best way to learn about all the opportunities at the UofG for you is to go on a campus tour and hear from a current student! When you are on campus, make sure you see the Cannon, and grab a bite to eat at Creelman Hall, my favourite dining facility!
