I first met my advisor, Dr. Tom Hsiang, in the third year of my undergraduate studies when I took his Forest Health and Disease class. Overall, he has been a huge factor in encouraging me to go forward with graduate studies and continues to make me happy with the decision to do so.
As Canada's Agricultural University, the University of Guelph was my first choice as a food researcher. With the recent addition of the Arrell Food Institute, I couldn't imagine a better fit than the University of Guelph.
I like the fact that you can go out to the Arboretum and walk during lunch. The flowers and the trees provide such a beautiful and serene outlook to the campus. I like how the buildings are not congested into one area but are separated by trees and pathways.
We have AMAZING faculty for cardiovascular research, as well as nutrition, exercise and food science. If you're trying to choose universities and advisors, come drop by Guelph- chat to the professors, other lab members, our support staff. You'll see the difference yourself and be able to make an informed decision!
