Bachelor of Geography/Bachelor of Education Graduate
Oshawa, ON

"I chose to come to Lakehead because of the great tradition and reputation of the education program as well as the beautiful city it is located in. Lakehead is the right school for me because I feel like an important student through constant interaction with my professors and not just a number like you may feel at some larger institutions. Lakehead's Thunder Bay campus is in a great town with a lot of entertaining things to see and do. The scenery in the area is like nothing I have ever seen before growing up in Southern Ontario. If you want a great university experience as well as the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, then Lakehead is a great choice for you!


Being a Geography and Education student, I find that my program is very rewarding. The educational experience that I have received in the years that have passed has been more than I ever expected it would be.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy fishing and camping in the summer months within the Northwestern Ontario region and in the winter, I am very busy with the Thunderwolves Varsity Hockey program here at Lakehead."
