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. ”
