Why McMaster: "I chose McMaster Engineering because of its reputation as a program but also the community surrounding the engineering faculty. There seems to be a lot of student support and guidance within the program and I felt that this would be the best fit for me. I was also raised in Hamilton and have been living here my entire life. I am in love with my city and having the opportunity to go to school here makes it even better! After taking another semester of high school and a semester off, I am just so excited to get into the swing of things again! I miss being in a class setting and being exposed to new concepts and ideas in science and math. I’m excited to see what i’m capable of and i can’t wait to make friends that will hopefully last a life time."
