We Chose Lakehead...
Chinonye Ojaka Nigeria BA Political Science
"I chose to come to Lakehead University because of its Thunder Bay campus. Lakehead is a quiet and safe place to learn and it also provides small class sizes which appealed greatly to me. I think Lakehead University in Thunder Bay is the best place to complete a post secondary degree because there are fewer distractions and you can really focus on your studies. Also, I found that the people in Thunder Bay and the students, staff and faculty at Lakehead are all very kind, friendly and helpful which is a great feeling once you arrive!"
"I chose Lakehead for an experience no other university would have been able to offer me. Being a global nomad, Lakehead is a university that has been able to provide me with social and mental growth that has made me realize my potential. Lakehead University is able to provide you with an experience that will last a lifetime.
The Environmental Engineering program is designed for someone that prefers hands on experience in their program of study. I have finished 4 years of Chemical Engineering at Lakehead and really enjoyed everything it had to offer me as a student. Students, staff and faculty alike have been amazing! Because of my experience, I decided to stay at Lakehead and complete my Masters level study in Environmental Engineering."
Rome, Italy HBSc Applied Bio-Molecular Science
"Hello there, I am an international student from Rome, Italy and I came all the way to Lakehead to enrol in the Applied Bio-Molecular Science Program. I decided to pursue a degree in
Canada because I found that the more flexible academic system could allow me to expand my interests. Furthermore, after the first and second year of my degree, the opportunity to experience the unique teaching environment offered by Lakehead, together with the hands-on training and the opportunity to work with professors in research, made me realize that Lakehead was the winning choice for me.
I am also happy to say that I found a very diverse university community here that integrates many different cultures. My peers, professors and staff at Lakehead accept me for who I am and allow me to express my international diversity day after day. So, come and enjoy
LakeheadUniversity and let it be your home away from home."
