Hey there! My name is Christina-Jade Contrino and I’m from Montreal. I recently graduated from Bishop’s University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Global Management and Leadership. I first heard about Bishop’s at a school fair when I was studying at Dawson. Bishop’s was hands down the best decision I ever made from meeting some of my best friends, going on exchange or getting involved in the many extracurricular activities BU has to offer, I couldn’t have found a better fit! I am very humbled to be part of the recruitment team and to have the opportunity to meet all you future Gaiters across Canada!!
Hi! My name is Kelly Dean-Feldman and I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. I am originally from the South Shore of Montreal, but I now consider Sherbrooke to be my home. When I came to Bishop’s in 2016 I never imagined myself staying after graduation but throughout my time here I fell in love with the community that both Bishop’s and the Eastern Townships have to offer. While I was in high school and CEGEP I had never heard of Bishop’s University before, that is until I met a recruiter at a university fair. From that day I knew Bishop’s was the right place for me and I have never been happier with my decision to study here.
Hi there! My name is Jeremi Harrison-Lalande, and I am originally from Montreal, Quebec but completed my high school in Ontario.
I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and a Minor in Entrepreneurship. I first heard of Bishop’s while looking for English only universities in Quebec, and it was hands down the best school I could have ever chosen. Bishop’s provided me with the great experiences and opportunities I was looking for during my journey through post-secondary education.
At Bishop’s I was able to make lifelong friends while living on-campus and help guide incoming students as a student ambassador. I was able to take part in several business case competitions and understand the business world’s competitive nature, while being a part of awesome internships and projects. Bishop’s offered everything I was looking for and much more.
I am very humbled for this chance to be a part of the recruitment team and to have the opportunity to meet so many future Gaiters.
Graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in modern languages, with a concentration in Japanese and Italian Studies. I was born and raised in Sherbrooke, QC and I first came to BU as a transfer student from another local university. I wanted to continue my study of languages and the setting I found at Bishop’s was perfect for that. Towards the later years of my degree, we were fewer than ten students in my classes. I did not know what to expect from Bishop’s before coming here, even though I had always lived fairly close. The liberal education model allowed me to learn about many different subjects, but in the end, it is about myself that I learned the most.
Hey future Gaiters! My name is Sophie Jacques and I am from Sherbrooke, Quebec. I graduated from Bishop’s with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources. Before attending Bishop’s in 2012, I had never studied at an English school. It was a huge challenge, but look at me now, graduated and now working with the recruitment team!
Before being a recruiter, I had always worked in retail so I obviously LOVE talking and being with people. I started with the recruitment team in 2017 and traveled around the world to meet future students. During my undergrad, Bishop’s gave me the confidence to be who I wanted to be. With its small and close-knit community, Bishop’s was a safe and supportive environment to learn a new language while completing a degree. It is now my time to give back to the university that allowed me to become the person I am today. I look forward to sharing my passion for Bishop’s University to future prospective students! Au plaisir de vous rencontrer et de discuter avec vous!

I may be the only member of the Recruitment and Retention team that did not do my undergraduate degree at Bishop’s, but I was a regular visitor to the area and to the campus for fifteen years before moving to Lennoxville in 2017! Before taking on the role of Student Retention Programs Coordinator, I worked at Bishop’s as an Admissions Officer for three years, and before that I taught students from grade 4 to grade 12 in Ontario. I am gradually working my way up through the education system for a second time; I am even working on a second Master’s degree, so it won’t be long before I can call myself a Bishop’s grad, too!
Born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area, I also lived in the Midwest and in New England, where my husband taught at American universities before joining the English department at Bishop’s. We have three kids who can often be found playing around the campus or decked out in purple at Bishop’s sports events!
I’m Lyssa and while my family roots are in the Eastern Townships region, I grew up in London, ON and I graduated from BU with a double major in Political Studies and International Studies with a minor in French Language Studies. Bishop’s was perfect for me, not only on a social level, but in terms of academics as well. I learn best with a personalized teaching approach and this is exactly what Bishop’s provided. I would not change my Bishop’s experience one bit.
I am the Campus Tours and Events Coordinator but I also visit with students across the Eastern Townships region of Quebec, so watch for me at your local CEGEP. My fun fact is that I LOVE horses and Dogs! You can catch me at rodeos, races, or hiking the mountains in Quebec.
BA ’94 MCS ’05 UTC ’05
Born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario I’ve lived in three other provinces and have spent the last 20 years working in higher education for four Canadian universities including my alma mater, Bishop’s University. I completed an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree in History at BU before I went on and completed a Masters in Communications Studies degree and a University Teaching Certificate, both at the University of Calgary. Although my time as a student at Bishop’s was long ago, I fondly remember being involved in a variety of things such as being a member of the varsity men’s volleyball team, a DJ for the radio station, Orientation leader, member of the history club, geography club, ski & snowboard club, and a campus tour guide. I also lived in residence – Norton 4th floor with my roommate Paul who I still keep in touch with nearly 30 years later! Today I’ve taken my residence experience to a whole new level as my wife and two children live in one of the houses located right on campus – nothing beats a five minute walk to work. There is no colour in the world better than Purple and no better place to be than in Lennoxville on the Bishop’s campus!
