Why I love my program

Entering university, I didn't want to choose between biology and physics, so Life Physics was a perfect choice for me. It seamlessly blends the two fields together making learning super interdisciplinary. Since we’re a smaller program, you truly get to know the other students in Life Physics really well over the years and I’ve become lifelong friends with the people I’ve met.

Why University of Waterloo?

In addition to the amazing co-op program, Waterloo is the perfect home away from home. It’s close enough to my hometown of Unionville that a quick weekend trip is super convenient, but far enough for me to grow as an independent adult. Everyone on campus is super open and welcoming, making it the perfect environment for learning and growth.
