Student Testimonials

Kate Murphy

“I did my Undergraduate studies at the University of Guelph, and I really enjoy both the city and the campus. The atmosphere here is unlike any other University I’ve been to. When I was given the opportunity to stay here, I did not hesitate to take it.”

“I chose to attend the University of Guelph because of its reputation and great teaching facilities.”

Agata Zienowicz

“The University of Guelph is large enough to accommodate a variety of opportunities for students (programs, classes, clubs, etc), yet still small enough to provide a low student to faculty ratio. This makes it easy to interact directly with your professors and get individual attention whenever needed.”
