Some U of G financial aid for you XXXX

Hope studies are going well XXXX,

Having been a student myself at Guelph, I know this time of year bank accounts start to get low. Between partying, food, books, tuition and a whole new wardrobe-change as summer approaches, University is expensive. What you need to know is that since you are an educated University student, companies will pay you for your influential opinion on matters important to Canadians. Opinions on questions such as “Is marijuana good or bad for Canada?”. Your opinions help shape the decisions made by businesses, media and policy-makers across Canada while you are directly rewarded for your input.
