“University is not a race and it doesn't have an expiry date. It’s not about who finishes the fastest, but about the experiences you gain while you’re in it. Gaining work experience while you’re in university is easier and it makes life easier after graduation.”

- Robyn Ho, co-op alumna


“DO IT. I tell everyone I meet through Students in Communications, or even just class, to pursue the co-op program. It quite literally changed my life, and for the better. Pairing your academic skills with applied experience while still in university is instrumental in becoming competitive in your chosen field and learning about yourself.”

- Mia Loiselle, co-op alumna
