Why was Lakehead the right university for you?
Lakehead was the right university for me because the education program that I was interested in was the best in Ontario. Yes, the campus of choice was a bit far from home, but it was exactly the kind of independence I was looking for. One of the top selling points for making the decision to attend Lakehead was the small campus, which meant relatively small class sizes. My thought process was that Lakehead University was going to be my home away from home.

What is your fondest memory of Lakehead?

My fondest memory of Lakehead was all the great times that I was able to cheer with the cheerleading team at Lakehead University. I really loved the school team spirit at varsity games. It was almost like that feeling, when you are here, you are family. Everyone had a place where they fit in.

What was your favourite Lakehead hangout?

My favourite Lakehead hangout was the 4th floor of the ATAC building. It has the most spectacular view of Thunder Bay. When I came here I was told about this mountain called the Sleeping Giant, and you can see it from the 4th floor of this building. The view is very picturesque.

What has your Lakehead degree done for you?

My Lakehead degree has opened many opportunities for me. With a degree in education I am not limited to just formal teaching within a classroom setting. Overall, my degree has aided me in being in the position I am in right now. I always knew that I wanted to give back to the community, and I believe that by having a degree in education I was putting myself on the right path to do so.
