Chantae Robinson, Biomedical Biology

I require an environment that provides me with many opportunities to flourish and grow intellectually as well as socially, and Laurentian has been that for me. For example, Laurentian has given me many avenues to get first-hand experience within the field I wish to pursue post-graduation. For me particularly, this is the research field. There are many opportunities to work with professors, where you are able to apply your theoretical knowledge in a practical setting. Because of the smaller campus, I have greater opportunities to network and I advise prospective students to do the same as Laurentian is firmly built for student success.
