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

My favourite thing about U of G is the campus, there’s something about it that pulls you in and makes you feel like home. Everything is so accessible within the city and campus. Everyone is so friendly and supportive, and you will always have at least two people running to hold the door for you. You will also hear the words “thank you” about 100 times a day on campus.

My most memorable experience was the pep rally in first year. It’s how I bonded with those in my residence, making lasting friendships. This led me to become a OV the following year.

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

  • Orientation volunteer: I wanted to express my love for U of G to incoming students and welcome them around campus to answer any questions.
  • Multiple Intramural sports: starting in first year with the residence intramural option. Then women’s and co-ed soccer.
  • Multi-sport: great way to bring a more relaxed approach while getting active, having fun.
  • Work study program: Recruitment and Admission Assistant within my 3rd and 4th year. Experiential learning, and allowed me to learn more about the U of G.

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

I wanted to share my passion for the U of G and help guide prospective students decision in regards to navigating their interests and finding the school they can visualize themselves. I had such a great experience and my job in the work-study program prompted me to become an LO. I’m excited to see how I can impact a students decision, by helping them find themselves ad a program that interests them. I find excitement in sharing my stories and it will be so rewarding to know I made a positive impact on someone’s future.

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

Choose the school that is right for you! Think about the program, the people and the place you can visualize yourself at. This is all about you.

Anything else to add?

Explore your options, ask questions, because you are making a decision on a place that will impact your life beyond the next 4 years.
