"I was happy to share my time chatting with students about preparing for the workforce, as I feel I would have greatly benefited from that opportunity myself when I was an undergrad. I found this experience to be rewarding and welcome future opportunities to be engaged in student-alumni networking initiatives."
- Ailish Wade, MAES, 2014

Become a Class Champion
The Class Champions programs support alumni volunteers to act as class reps; promoting their class reunion, reaching out to former classmates, and if they wish, even planning a special class activity. If you're a natural connector, volunteer to help get the gang back together.

Read about our latest Co-op Student of the Year: Regan Zink
A message from Regan’s employer:
Regan is intelligent, hardworking and resourceful. In her work with us, Regan has demonstrated that she is quick to learn and willing to take on many complex and varied tasks. I depended on Regan’s abilities for several tasks during her co-op placement.
After her co-op placement at MHBC’s Kitchener office, we rehired Regan as a part-time staff member in our Barrie office. While continuing with her studies, Regan commuted two days a week to Barrie where she again went above and beyond our expectations of a student planner. Regan’s commitment to the company, attention to detail and diligence have made her a valuable asset to the MHBC team.
