Why I Chose Guelph...

“I chose to study at the University of Guelph because I wanted a research-intensive program that would combine my undergraduate psychology and marketing education. The thesis-based MSc here did just that!”

About the City...

“I love the people! Everybody is so friendly here. It was almost like a culture shock.”

About My Program...

“Graduate students have a lot of autonomy, support and encouragement from faculty and admin to pursue our interests. Since we are a small department, it’s easy to spend time with professors and develop an in-depth research experience. I enjoy being a TA and relating to students to help them grow as people. It’s nice to be on the “other side”; a lot of big-picture perspective is gained here.”

Other Thoughts...

“I really enjoy the sense of community in being a student here. Students come together to support each other creating a very happy environment. I love walking around campus without worry. I know that if I ever run into any sort of problem help is just around the corner. It’s very easy to approach people because they’re always smiling.”

My Future Plans...

“After graduation I plan on working in market research while starting up an entrepreneurial project I have in mind. I am really excited for this next stage in my life! I feel very prepared.”
