Which Huron Residence I lived in: O’Neil Ridley and Hellmuth Hall

Career Goal: Still trying to explore different fields but I am interested in the education sector, and would like to further explore sustainable development and global affairs.

Before Huron, I used to think of university as a place where you attend class and then go home and complete assignments. Huron was completely different. When I came to Huron, it felt similar to the immense support I received back in my high school with smaller class sizes that are highly interactive and discussion-based in nature, with invaluable personal connections with professors. Beyond class, there are lots of engaging activities and extracurricular opportunities, in addition to academics. Huron’s Career Development Centre in particular has been exceptionally available and supportive in helping me apply for my Community Residence Don position and helping me get different interviews for jobs and paid internships.
