Testimonial

Greg Toole, BBA 2011, on exchange in Winter 2010.

“Looking back one year since leaving for my exchange in Austria, I still consider it to be the best decision I've ever made. In the five months I spent studying abroad, I had some unforgettable times and forged friendships that will last a lifetime. Immersing myself in another culture was a great learning experience, and it made me reexamine what it means to me to be Canadian. Not only was my semester abroad the best I've had yet, it contributed something special to my university experience that I couldn't have gotten any other way.”
