The faculty at the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development (SEDRD) have been so communicative and supportive since the first day of the Fall semester, which I'm so grateful for as an international student who is still new to the town. Coming from New York City, Guelph is definitely different but I would say it's been a relief. It truly grounds me to not be amongst the hustle and bustle everyday and it's a small town full of nice people.
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.
