What Students are Saying

"I was looking for programs that would allow me to pursue food security and resource studies and Guelph’s program was the most comprehensive. The OAC has so many traditions and when I went on a campus tour it felt like the right place for me to be. The University of Guelph isn’t too big or too small; it has a great atmosphere and I love the campus. " - Laura, food, agriculture and resource economics student
