U of G resonated the most with me when I visited campus, especially the green scenic and calm environment compared to Toronto. The kindness of the people that I met while being on campus for the first time facilitated a warm and welcoming atmosphere as well.

One of my favourite classes was FOOD 4400 (dairy processing) by Prof.Goff. I was fascinated by the process and science behind making a variety of dairy products. In addition, we had cheese and ice cream labs, which were so much fun.
