University of Calgary is a vibrant community, with individuals hailing from many different backgrounds. All have diverse perspectives on life, love, learning, and everything in between.
Our objective is to share the stories and photos of students, faculty, alumni, and staff from UCalgary and create a greater sense of community.
“Employers are no longer looking for a 4.0 student. They want people who are unafraid to do interesting, unconventional things.
You gain such a wealth of knowledge by going overseas. You could go, come back, and then know what you want to do and get out of life. During my undergrad I left for a semester to travel to Europe, and when I returned I knew what I wanted to get out of school and it helped me realize where I wanted to go. I think too many people are focused on starting their career. They might not realize that this is the best time to get out there and embrace something new, and maybe discover what you want to be in the future.
Now I work as an Instructor with the Haskayne School of Business and it has been amazing to give back to the program that has taught me so much.
