I am proud to be a graduate student at Guelph. We strive for excellence and are pushing research frontiers. The graduate student community is also tightly knit which creates a great sense of comradery.
Whether you want to walk though the Arboretum and commune with nature, grab a quick bite to eat between classes...or see which friends you can find strolling across Johnston Green, there's always something fun do to around campus.
The city of Guelph has a community that cannot be matched. It is possible to have fun with friends downtown but also immerse myself in music festivals and learning new skills like pottery. It's easy to take advantage of all these great activities because everything is close by.
I chose to complete my grad studies at Guelph because of the faculty in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development and the connections that the University has to several provincial ministries and government organizations.
I chose the University of Guelph because I knew the DNA barcoding initiative originated here and I was interested in its potential applications as a diagnostic tool in food inspection, forensic science, and environmental monitoring.
