It's Easy to Get Involved

I found that the University of Guelph is excellent for exploring new opportunities and building your resume. Numerous professors in science are incredibly welcoming and would love to have you volunteer in their lab with potential to join the lab through research/lab courses and summer employment opportunities. All it took was an email for me to delve into environmental/agriculture-related lab and field experiences. Many of my courses in environmental science took me outside into the field to gain hands on experience in identifying plants, collecting soil samples and more. I also completed a field biology class that took place in Central America. That particular course was made possible for me with the assistance of a travel grant. Outside of class, I joined many clubs such as TEDxGuelphU, the Artistic Swimming team, and the Red Cross Support Group that helped me learn event planning skills as well as opening my eyes to engaging with the community while being a part of a team. Overall, the people at Guelph really made my experience on campus worth it as everyone is so friendly and helpful. The opportunities are endless, and I found out about so many of them through the friends I made on campus. In terms of difficulties I had on campus, there were some professors who were more difficult than others. Before signing up for courses each semester, I made sure to ask multiple people in my program about each course. Understanding how other students responded to a professor’s teaching and grading methods was critical in my course selection process as I wanted to ensure not all my courses were incredibly difficult. I avoided a professor completely after I had heard about his harsh attitude towards students and his alleged homophobic remarks. Overall, I highly recommend the University of Guelph and recommend that everyone really make their time there worthwhile!
