It is hard to believe I am going into my final year of my undergraduate degree. The years definitely flew by, but what I am most proud of is studying something that I love. During my first year I had every intention of pursuing a degree in medical science, but come second year I decided to take a more desirable route, Environmental Geoscience. With this change, came many opportunities. I have had the opportunity to help run our undergraduate club, sit on science council as our department representative and do research for a total of four different professors and two companies.
None of the aforementioned would have been possible without pursuing the things I enjoy. Western is a fantastic school with lots of opportunities. My advice to the prospective students, study what you enjoy and you will succeed.
Things may seem overwhelming when you first start your undergraduate career, but stay focused and remember your routines and practices that got you to Western!
Western has plenty of resources for its students; writing clinics, extra help sessions, academic oriented clubs, study groups, and more. Take advantage of as much as you can handle.
Congratulations on picking Western, and best of luck with your undergraduate careers!
