"I chose Lakehead University because I have lived in Thunder Bay all of my life so I felt that it would be an easy adjustment to make, compared to going away for school. Lakehead is a smaller university which is better for me because I like the idea of smaller class sizes and more one-on-one time with professors. Lakehead also offered me a program that I was greatly interested in and at an affordable cost. The university community here is very friendly and it's easy to meet people because the atmosphere is very relaxed. The educational experience that you receive is second to none since the interaction with profs is more frequent than it would be at larger institutions.
When I am not in class, I am a TA (teacher's assistant) for the Physics department and I play for the women's Varsity Volleyball team. I love staying active and trying new things."
