Why I Chose Bishop’s…

Why I Chose Bishop’s…

The reasons our students choose Bishop’s are as varied as our students themselves, but the common themes are that our students don’t want to be a number and lost in the crowd, they want to be part of a community, a family, and have their voice heard.  They also want to experience university, not just attend an institution of higher learning.  Whatever your reason for choosing Bishop’s, remember that we are all Gaiters and are proud of it!

I chose Bishop’s because…

…it felt like a home away from home as soon as I stepped foot on campus. I really loved how much everyone talked about how happy they were with their decision and that was important to me. I don’t want to go to school somewhere where I dread getting up and going to classes…BU is the opposite of that.Rachel Morgan, Education, Senneville, QC
…something just clicked and I just felt it was right, even though I’ll be a five hour plane ride from home, it felt like a new home for me in the short time that I toured the campus. I know Bishop’s will give me back what I put in which no large university was willing to do for me.Zoe Giglio, Environmental Studies & Geography, Sebastopol, CA USA
…I was looking for a school with a strong sense of community and pride, and Bishop’s seemed to have that to a huge degree. The more I asked others about the school, the more positive reviews I heard. In the end, Bishop’s was exactly what I was looking for in a university.Ananya Srivastava, Class of ’17, Mississauga, ON
…I was tired of just being a number/body at my former university! I believe in a learning community, not just an education system! I want to be somewhere that I can thrive, try, fail, try again and be encouraged throughout! Bishop’s offered a friendly community, interesting courses and clubs and the learning community that I need and want!Courtney Roy, Education, Gatineau, QC
…no matter what type of person you are, you will find your niche.  At BU – with it being small you are forced to meet people you would never expect to get to know.  There are so many ways to meet people and get involved.Ellen Black, Class of ’16, North Vancouver, BC
…you can do whatever the heck you put your mind to while you’re at Bishop’s!Chloe Soucy, English Major, Derry, NH USA
…when I first came to Bishop’s, everyone told me how incredible it was.  Looking back on my four years, I never could have imagined just how incredible it would turn out to be!Lauren Audas, Class of ’17, Fredericton, NB
…Bishop’s isn’t a school where you float alone through your degree, but a school where you are continuously inspired and supported by each and every person around you.  Being a Gaiter is being part of a family.Kate Halliday, Class of ’17, Pictou County, NS
…I feel like each student has a voice here, one that matters and that is heard.  Every member of the community is empowered and encouraged to get involved and I am proud to call myself a Gaiter!Camille Cournoyer, International Studies, Candiac, QC
…you’d have a hard time walking across campus without bumping into someone you know.  No one could hide the Bishop’s community spirit, even if they wanted to.Jonah Fogg, Environmental Studies and Geography, Sault Ste. Marie, ON
…everyone here is open to embrace unique individuals and ideas.  You don’t have to worry about not making friends here – there will always be a place on this campus for you, and there will always be people who are willing to recognize your significance.Junru Bian, Politics and International Studies (Global Governance), Beijing, China
…there really seems to be no separation between the years – you aren’t a first year or a fourth year, we are all Gaiters.Meghan Chase, Elementary Education, Whistler, BC
…I feel like this is where I’m meant to be.  Every student is part of the Gaiter community and, above all, we have access to a liberal education which means the freedom to choose, autonomy and just true passion!Valentin Bach, Business, Mulhouse, France
…I wanted to be in a bilingual environment and when I visited BU, I just felt at home.Lean Piernas, Biological Sciences, Contoocook, NH USA
