Why did you choose the University of Ottawa?

I chose the University of Ottawa because of its amazing location near the ByWard Market and downtown Ottawa. The Telfer School of Management’s programs and courses were unmatched by other schools I considered.

Are you involved in any clubs or extracurricular activities? If so, please describe a noteworthy experience.

As VP, Creative, of the Management Information Systems Association (MISA), I had the opportunity to create a website to help hundreds of students buy and sell their used books every semester.

Have you ever received assistance from a student association or service? If so, please describe how the association or service helped you.

The Telfer School of Management’s Career Centre has provided me with great advice and direction for looking and applying for jobs. The Centre has also arranged many information sessions with quality employers.

In what ways do you feel that your uOttawa education is preparing you for your future?

My education at uOttawa has provided me with essential knowledge, communication skills and a personal and professional network that will be extremely valuable in the future. When I graduate,
