For this week’s issue, we patrolled the grounds looking for your answers to this question: Why did you choose TRU?

Julie McNutt, first year sciences: “I’m from here, so it’s definitely easy to come here. It’s more affordable to stay in town. I’ve heard good things about the science program here so that also helps.”

Alex Buonassisi, first year law: “Because it’s a beautiful school and [a] beautiful city. I went [to the University of B.C. before]. I also wanted variety.”

Raphael Jamin, first year engineering: “Because of the engineering transfer program they have. I did a lot of research into it. There’s a really high level of graduation from it. As well, it transfers to most of the schools I’d like to go to afterwards. It gives me the chance for smaller class sizes for starting out and then I already have my foot in the door for going to the large universities to finish.”
