Why I love my program
I'm gaining more appreciation for the biochemistry-specific courses and labs that I am taking, and as I continue through my undergrad studies! Our biochemistry program allows you to be exposed to many different aspects of the field, which is awesome but there were definitely some courses I had to persevere through. Now that I'm in a place where I get to be more specific in the courses I'm taking, I feel like I have a greater appreciation for how amazing the systems that occur in all living organisms that took billions of years to evolve so that now we're in a place that we can study them today!
Why University of Waterloo?
What originally brought my attention to UWaterloo was hearing the amazing experiences of my step-mom who went here. Obviously all the amazing features Waterloo had to offer were all factors that contributed to me applying. However, I think it was hearing about all the friendships and stories (basically all the experiences that you can't necessarily know about unless you talk to someone that went/goes to Waterloo) was what got me most excited about being here. Now that I've made my own friendships and truly feel like I belong here, I hope that I can share those experiences back to our prospective students.
