Alumni Testimonials

Description

"My time studying philosophy at UFV was formative and it provided me with fantastic opportunities to work and volunteer within the school community. Meaningful conversations with professors and the opportunity to pursue my particular academic interests through directed studies made for a truly exceptional and individualized experience. This year, I am beginning graduate studies in the UK, and I credit UFV for preparing me for this exciting new venture."

Description

"UFV has been so great for me. When I was in high school I felt really untapped. There was so much I wanted to do and learn and I didn’t really find that in the high school setting. I actually started coming here and volunteering with Indo-Canadian Studies when I was fourteen doing little research projects, and I found faculty and staff here have been really incredible. I was always able to find ways to grow and push myself here, and those resources have been really incredible."

Description

"I graduated from UFV in 2014 with an Honours degree in English literature and am now the managing editor of PokerNews Canada, the country’s largest poker news website. The faculty in the English department were incredible. They always took a personal interest in the areas I wanted to research or discuss and treated me like an equal. I believe this went a long way in giving me the confidence to get to where I am today, not just professionally, but personally."
