Year and Program: 4A Biochemistry

Best experience at UW: I have loved getting to work with student staff in my time here. From dons, to orientation leaders, science ambassadors and outreach staff and volunteers!

Future goals: I'd like to work in education

Advice for science students: Find something that you love to do and get involved with it!

Year and Program: Fourth year Biology

Best experience at UW: I really enjoyed the Science Society end of term event in Winter 2018. It was a lot of fun and a great way to decompress before the start of finals.

Future goals: I will be applying to the Ontario Veterinary College at Guelph in this upcoming year. I hope to one day work with exotic species, possibly at a zoo or wildlife rehabilitation centre.

Advice for science students: My biggest piece of advice for any UW student would be to attend all of your lectures and be active in your own learning. Learning and retaining concepts and information is a lot easier when you acquire it on a regular schedule. Going to lectures also allows for quick clarifications with your professors, and time out of class can then be used for review rather than initial learning.
