Why did you choose Carleton:
I chose Carleton University because of its beautiful location and for the Integrated Science program. I immediately fell in love with the campus during a summer tour. My program also provided opportunities to work with the RCMP which was very appealing as I hope to pursue a career working in a law enforcement laboratory.
Why do you recommend Carleton to prospective students:
I would recommend Carleton University to prospective students as there are a variety of excellent programs and majors to choose from. We have a more intimate campus setting with many services available to students on-site. Having smaller classes also allows you to get to know more students as well as your professors and instructors.
What are your post-graduate plans:
I plan to pursue graduate studies in Toronto for Forensic Science in the hopes of starting a career with the Toronto police force or the Ontario Provincial Police.
What clubs/events/athletics/extra-curricular activities do you participate in at Carleton?
I am the Promotions Coordinator for the Carleton Integrated Science Society. I am also a team member for the Science Student Success Center, a volunteer note taker for the Paul Menton Center, a former Orientation Facilitator and current Vice Head Facilitator for Fall Orientation week at Carleton. I have also volunteered as a Mentor for the Student Experience Office Orientation Mentorship Program, served as International Ambassador for the International Student Services Office, and volunteered for the Canadian Biodiversity Institute during Carleton Serves. I am also a member of a sorority and serve as the sorority’s Merchandising Coordinator.
Where is your favourite place to hang out on campus?
My favourite places to hang out on campus are the Integrated Science workroom in the Herzberg Laboratories building and at Oliver’s in the University Center
Where is the best place to eat on campus?
The best place to eat on campus is definitely Oliver’s in the University Center. It’s great food on a student budget and is open late, especially during the summer semester.
What is the most interesting class you have taken at Carleton?
The most interesting class I have taken so far is a tie between Analytical Chemistry and Criminal Behaviour. Analytical Chemistry has diverse applications in the real world and you are trained on instruments that are currently used in laboratories. Criminal Behaviour is really interesting as you learn about high profile criminal cases and why people commit crimes.
