Tristan Smyth, BSc (Hons.) Chemistry/16

“Joining the Undergraduate Chemistry Society (or “Chem Club”) was easily one of the best things I did. University isn’t just about studying/working 24/7, but also about the relationships and network you build during your time as an undergraduate.”

Ellyne Geurts

Undergraduate Biological Sciences

“I chose to study biology because I love animals and I want to contribute to their conservation. I also really enjoy working outdoors because every day is like a mini adventure, so I am currently pursuing a degree in field ecology.”

Josh Garfalo

Undergraduate Co-op Microbiology

“What stands out about my experience at the University of Manitoba are the professors and students I’ve met, they’ve been very approachable, and I’ve made many new friendships. I’ve also had the opportunity to work in a research lab and gain first-hand experience in a field that interests me”

Cindy Vuong

Undergraduate Genetics

“There will be times when certain courses will make you feel unsure and you’ll question if you’ll make it through. Stay true to what you are passionate about and press forward, soon these hard times will be over, and you’ll emerge a new strong warrior.”

Harley Bray

Undergraduate Chemistry Schulich Leader Scholarship Undergraduate Student Research Volunteer

“One of the things I’m super passionate about is volunteering for Science Rendezvous. Yes, we can do science and research and all this cutting edge stuff, but if we can’t communicate it to the rest of the world, then what’s the point? Science is for everybody.”
