    Engagement within the University of Waterloo and its University Colleges has been a defining element of Lorena Diller Harder’s university experience. Lorena is in her fourth year as a French major with a Teaching Specialization and a minor in History. She is also a candidate for the Global Experience Certificate, which recognizes student experiences in intercultural living and study. After studying abroad in France for her third year, Lorena decided that Conrad Grebel University College held the community she wanted to return to as she finished her university career. She noted that after first-year, “sometimes people move out of their residence or college from a fear they’re going to be stuck in this one small place. However, Grebel functions as a home base for me, as somewhere I am going to continue to grow and be able to contribute to a community.”
