Graduate Testimonial: Pawel Korczyk



The professors at Wilfrid Laurier and the other Tri-University campuses were clearly invested in helping me succeed. Their doors were always open, and they took care in providing genuine and helpful feedback on all of my work. The opportunity to engage with history departments at different universities meant I had a wide selection of courses to choose from that matched my interests. One of my favourite experiences was presenting a paper at the Tri-University History conference, where I had the opportunity to share my research with my colleagues in the field.

One of the largest draws for me was the opportunity to serve as a teaching assistant for first year history courses at Laurier. I was a high school teacher already, so TAing allowed me to keep my teaching skills sharp while it also gave me a stronger understanding of the skills my future students will need as they make the transition into higher education.
