I chose to transfer to Lakehead after my first year for the small, cozy community and the dedicated profs. The profs know me by name and they're all extremely supportive. They go out of their way to help you become involved in their research regardless of what year you are or how much experience you've had. They really do make the program. My advice to future students: Don't feel that you're limited to the program you've chosen-if you'd like to give music or anthropology or computer science a try, go for it. University is a time for you to really get to know yourself, discover your passions, and follow in dreams you never knew you had.
Outside class, I work as a field and lab tech for a local archaeological dig, as the news editor for the Argus, and as a writer for the SPARK Newsletter and the Chronicle Journal. I've also served as the President of the Lakehead Volunteer Association and the Vice President of the Anthropology Association. Last summer, I had the opportunity to study in Ireland after taking the ancient DNA internship offered at the Paleo-Lab. Finally, I love soccer and play in the rec league. I also like The Study, it is a nice cozy cafe with an awesome staff. You can study, play pool, or catch a show in the evening. Great lattes :)
