Why I Chose Guelph...

“My interests are all related to agriculture and food. As a result of this, the University of Guelph was a natural fit. I did both my undergraduate and MSc degree here science in the OAC. Now I'm working towards my PhD!”

About Financial Support...

“As part of a scholarship I received for my MSc, I was required to take a business class and complete a semester long work placement. This was a life-changing experience. I was given the opportunity to interact with some very helpful and engaged people in both the business world and with those in academia who had a very clear business perspective. ”

Continuing at Guelph...

“One great thing about being a graduate student at Guelph is the opportunity to discuss and develop ideas with eager minds that are looking to discuss and develop their own ideas as well. Having the flexibility to read interesting research and then contact and discuss it with the person responsible for it is amazing. At the University of Guelph, I have never encountered an academic who shies away from an interesting discussion. ”

Other Thoughts...

“Figure out what motivates you, what you’re passionate about and what will drive you now and in the future. Start talking and engaging with people around campus. Go out of your way to get involved. It will pay off! The University of Guelph is full of passionate and interesting people and your attempts to connect with them can create opportunities you wouldn’t expect.”
