Meet our Students

Agata Zienowicz

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. ”

“I have had a unique experience in that I split my time between the University of Guelph and Public Health Agency of Canada. Both agencies provide support for my research, and this collaboration has provided me an insight into what is required to be a successful research both in academia and as a public servant.”

“You will be training with some very accomplished pathologists who often treat you as their equal. You will be challenged constantly to grow as a scientist and as a person. You will learn the basic skills in science and pathology and expected to contribute more to your field than those who have trained you. ”
Program: Pathobiology

“The University of Guelph's Criminology and Criminal Justice Program is an interdisciplinary program which includes components of criminology, political science and sociology. As a result, students are able and encouraged to view their research through several different lenses.”

“Being a graduate student at Guelph is a lot like having a full-time job where you get to study and learn about something that really interests you. Although graduate school has its ups and downs, Guelph provides a really supportive community environment that helps to buffer against the more challenging times. ”
