Why I love my program
My favourite thing about Biology is the number of different courses that you can take. I chose the Biology program because I didn't have to take a general first year - I got to take a bunch of biology courses right away which allowed me to discover what I was really passionate about. After first year there are so many course options which allows you to really focus on what you love or get an overview on a bunch of different aspects of the field!
Why University of Waterloo?
Everyone I met in the Science faculty at the University of Waterloo - from students to professors - was so enthusiastic about the programs and they really made it feel like it was the place for me! I felt welcomed into the school even before I came here and I still get that sense of community now.
