DP_Professional_Main_big.jpgI am an LU Alumni and I grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario (Manitouwadge), four hours northeast of Thunder Bay.  I spent many years going to the city as it was the closest one to our hometown and I have fond memories Thunder Bay.

When I completed high school I wanted to get as far away from my hometown as I could and so I decided to attend the University of Western Ontario (Western) in London.  I stayed for two years and realized that, while the school and the city were beautiful, it just wasn't a "fit" for me.  I would meet a person one day and they wouldn't remember me the next...

I transferred to Lakehead University to be closer to home and to complete the last two years of my four-year bachelor's degree - it was one of the best moves I've ever made.  Not only did I feel at "home" in Thunder Bay, and at Lakehead, but the faculty and the culture of the University inspired me in ways I did not expect.  The learning environment was one where the professor knew you by name (not by number), and was one where [again] you felt at "home".

I have several friends who also attended Lakehead and have gone on to become successful professionals.  I have a successful career and have traveled the world (and lived throughout Canada and overseas for my career), and I AM truly proud to be a Lakehead University graduate and to have had the opportunity to live in Thunder Bay.

Thank you Lakehead.
