Q: Tell us your story! What led to you applying to Northern, and accepting an offer?
Originally, I was going to university for Psychology. Late in my Grade 12 year, I changed my mind and decided business was better suited for me. I had heard great things about Northern’s business program, and Northern was close to home for me. I loved the idea of a small school where I could be a name, not a number.
Q: Did your Entrance Scholarship influence your choice?
Of course the entrance scholarship influenced my choice! A $500 bursary is significant for someone who is paying for their own education. If I had the opportunity, I would thank the donors for making my transition to college a little easier. It’s really nice to see my hard work and dedication acknowledged by the school I wanted to attend.
Q: What is your favorite thing about studying at Northern?
I love studying at Northern because it’s a small school with a friendly atmosphere. Your teachers and program coordinators know you by name and it’s really easy to get to know your classmates. There are no unfamiliar faces at Northern!
