Hello! I’m Saad, a recent grad who found home at Bishop’s 4 years ago when, on a road trip, I decided to make a detour to come see the Bishop’s campus on a snowy December afternoon in the middle of Christmas break. The buildings were covered in snow and there wasn’t a soul in sight. At the time I was enrolled at a university in Toronto, and when I departed the Bishop’s campus an hour later, I knew this was where I belonged.…Contact Information and full bio

Hello! I’m Saad, a recent grad who found home at Bishop’s 4 years ago when, on a road trip, I decided to make a detour to come see the Bishop’s campus on a snowy December afternoon in the middle of Christmas break. The buildings were covered in snow and there wasn’t a soul in sight. At the time I was enrolled at a university in Toronto, and when I departed the Bishop’s campus an hour later, I knew this was where I belonged.

Fast forward to 4 years later, I’ve graduated with a degree in Political Studies and History and found a new home working in Recruitment at the same institution that imparted a sense of belonging in me all those years ago. My time as an undergraduate at Bishop’s involved experiencing first-hand the benefits of being part of a close-knit community, building genuine rapport with professors and having opportunities to grow, both personally and professionally. I grew up in Karachi, Pakistan and having lived in Canada for a few years now, I have encompassed the many experiences of a domestic and international student in one and I look forward to helping prospective gaiters decide if Bishop’s is the place that can help them make their mark on the world!

Hi Gaiters! My name is Wilton Burgos, and I was born and raised on the beautiful Island of Aruba. I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Psychology. I first heard about Bishop’s at a University fair back when I was in High School, and I absolutely fell in love with the campus, and the small community feel. Bishop’s was the perfect fit since I was looking to be a name in a classroom and not just a number while also building strong and meaningful relationships with my classmates and professors.

As an International Student moving to a new country, starting a new school, and making new friends was not easy. Nevertheless, I am happy I chose Bishop’s since I had all the support needed to succeed. I also had the opportunity to give back to our community while working as a student ambassador and the International Students Representative. I am forever grateful for the amazing opportunities I got while being a Bishop’s Student, and I now look forward to helping other students have similar experiences.

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.

Hey everyone! My name is Eric Gendron, and I was originally born in Oakville, ON, but moved to Massachusetts when I was very young and grew up in a town named Shrewsbury – just outside of Worcester. I recently graduated from Bishop’s with a Bachelor of Arts in sociology, with a double concentration in criminology, law, & social policy as well as gender, diversity, & equity studies, and a minor in religion. They say home is where the heart is, and Bishop’s has become just that to me, home. When I first arrived on campus from the United States I was so nervous, but was quickly embraced by the warm and caring community that we have here.

Now I look back on my years at Bishop’s as some of the best of my life, so much so that I decided I didn’t want to leave – once a gaiter, always a gaiter! During my time here, I’ve had the ability to operate in a myriad of roles and immerse myself in the close-knit culture that we offer. I’ve assisted in organizing orientation week, worked as a teaching assistant for multiple professors, and spent time advocating on behalf of students on the Students’ Representative Council. The lifelong friends I met, the education I received, and the experiences I had while attending Bishop’s helped me grow into the person that I am today. I am eager to show you why choosing Bishop’s will leave you saying, there’s no place like home!

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!

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!

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 Manager of Student Recruitment and Retention, but I also work as a Municipal Councillor. 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!
