Rachel is proud of her achievements in the Economics Department:
My experience in the Economics program at UWaterloo has been great. The professors are always helpful and wanting you to succeed. On top of that, the co-op program has allowed me to put classroom knowledge into practice, while developing skills that would help me in the workplace later on.
