Sharon in front of Rideau River

Sharon B. from Ghana (Bachelor of Arts in Psychology)

“It was Canada’s openness to different cultural groups that enticed me. It looked like a place I could study, grow, and call home. On the other hand, what really drew me to Carleton was the beautiful scenery.”

Mariam on campus

Mariam O. from Canada and Nigeria (Bachelor of Commerce)

“The Sprott Business School Society is a lot of fun, and you also meet your classmates. They’re all in your program, so from there that’s how you make friends, and make connections. Before you know it, you’re going to networking events together! So actually joining one or two clubs is really good. It’s amazing to join clubs on campus. That’s how you make friends – and from there, you never know!”
