The personalized learning experience was a determining factor in deciding whether Huron would be the best for me. This is because Huron offers smaller, more specialized classroom sizes that allow you to interact with your professors and classmates, enabling you to get help when necessary as well as have meaningful discussions with your classmates both in and out of the classroom. Another defining factor that drew me to Huron was the ability to be able to utilize Western’s resources, especially the sporting facilities and the ability to join Western Mustang varsity athletic teams. This was something I was looking for in my post-secondary education as I am a competitive swimmer back in my home country, Kenya and I wanted to continue with my passion throughout university.
