Meghan is a second-year Social Service Worker student at Northern College Kirkland Lake Campus, who lives in the Kirkland Lake area. Meghan is a strong advocate for ability-related causes, and mentors other students through Northern’s First Year Experience Services.
Q: Tell us your story! What led to you applying to Northern, and accepting an offer?
I accepted Northern College’s offer because I felt that if I studied while still living at home, there was no chance that I wouldn’t be successful. My success up to this point has come from my own determination and a rock solid support system. I also wanted to attend Northern because of the small class sizes and the individual attention that is provided to students, in order to ensure their academic success.
Q: Did your Entrance Scholarship influence your choice?
Yes, the scholarship that I received definitely influenced my choice. When I received the scholarship, I felt honoured to be selected. I felt that I was already being made part of the Northern College community.
Q: If you had the opportunity to speak with the donors, what would you say?
I would thank them for creating the scholarship and for donating money to the school that now holds such a special meaning to me. I will never forget the life-changing experience I have had at Northern College.
