Advice for Current and Future Students:

Get involved…make friends, make connections, join clubs/sports teams and pursue opportunities. Being involved and engaged truly enhances your experience and complements your studies.

My favourite spots:

Carleton and Ottawa are both so homely, there’s enough going on but not too much that it’s overwhelming. There’s so many activities everyone can find something they like. My favourite spot at Carleton is “the quad”, it’s a great place to study or to hang out with friends. My favourite place in Ottawa is byward market, there is so many cool places to check out and so much to explore.

Fun Fact about Me:

I took a gap year between university and high school, and travelled loads. It was an incredible experience, it’s prepared me even more for university.
