I like UOIT because it quenches my thirst for volunteering. In the previous year I was an active member of various clubs on campus like the Muslim and Pakistan Student Associations and the Engineering Society. I can refresh myself by playing cricket, tennis, squash and even ice skating at the Campus Ice Centre (which I recently learned). Last year I achieved a memorable milestone in my life as a winning candidate in the Student Association elections. In short, my first year at UOIT provided me every reason to cheer academically and socially!

I chose to attend UOIT for the variety of programs it had, which includes my major in Criminology and Justice. My personal research about UOIT found there was an ever-increasing number of international students joining the university and this was important to me, having never been to Canada. I find everyone at this university to be so accommodating and so kind to me that I never had a worry or a care. After graduation, I plan to move back to my home country of Bermuda and pursue my dream career as a parole and probation officer.
