Get involved as much as you can during your undergrad. You can do this by building your Co-Curricular Record or getting involved in the wider community. The post-secondary experience shouldn’t only be about getting good grades. It’s a place for you to connect, establish new relationships, and start building your network!

“The university is a diverse place with diverse people. Take advantage of that by learning from those around you and engaging in the immense variety of opportunities. Whatever you do, do not just stay in your room and study; the world requires you to do much more than describe the Theory of Relativity or the stylistic prose of Mark Twain.”

“Every day, try to talk to someone who is very different from you. Ask open questions and listen to understand, not just to hear. You will learn much more from people’s stories than any textbook. (But also read your textbook… before class).”

“I would tell myself that it’s OK not to have everything figured out, and that study/research skills, personal development, and cultivation of hard work and curiosity are all more important than the details of my program and course choices. Also, I would have told my younger self that success at any endeavour is just the tip of a large iceberg, the remainder of which almost no one will ever see.
