Why I Chose Guelph… 

The City of Guelph is a great city with a vibrant downtown. With a walk through downtown, there are many locally owned shops, and a great farmer’s market (which is all year round)! 

About Campus… 

The campus is incredible. The University of Guelph has a relatively small campus, so navigating and getting around is easy. There is also so much green space on campus, which adds an esthetic beauty every time you are on campus. 

About Student Services… 

There are many opportunities for professional development for graduate students through Open-Ed and the Graduate Student Learning Initiative. As a graduate student, be sure to use both these resources to continue your professional development! 

About Financial Support… 

The OVC offers a number of student scholarships for incoming graduate students that really help fund the first few years.
