Why I love my program
The flexibility and the vast range of topics/interests all the people I meet in biology possess, everyday I learn something new and feel I am getting closer to my destined topic.
Why University of Waterloo?
The excellent reputation it has for co-op and for STEM work/programs in general and that it is world-renowned. As a high school student I was also heavily influenced by how easily accessible all the information about every program was and how clearly defined each faculty, discipline, major, etc is defined.
