Ambassador Profile- Jessika
My Laurier Brantford Experience
Hi! My name is Jessika Miller and I am entering my 3rd year of the Concurrent Education
Junior/Intermediate program here at Laurier Brantford. Thus far, my experience here has been wonderful and quite eventful and I am looking forward to making many great memories in the years to come. I have been involved on the campus in the Athletics and Recreation departments as an on ice official as well as with many campus clubs. Currently I am Co-President of the NUSA (Nipissing University Student Ambassadors) club, which organizes many student activities for Concurrent education students.
I first visited this campus at the Fall Open House and instantly fell in love with the small class sizes and small campus. Coming from a small town meant that the change from high school to post secondary would not be drastic. I again visited the campus during the Headstart program, which opened my eyes to the many other things Laurier Brantford had to offer. From this point I decided to participate in the O-week activities, which was one of the best experiences of my life.
Residence was an experience of a lifetime. I was fortunate enough to reside in Lucy Marco Place Basement/1 where I met three fantastic roommates! Our don was quite nice as well and she was there to help us adjust to living on our own. As a floor we held many “family” events such as dinners and mini putting. We made our year unique and memorable. I would highly recommend residence for everyone! It is a great experience and a great way to meet new people.
I am a highly athletic person. I love to swim, play hockey, lacrosse and soccer as well as hike in the great out doors. I have officiated hockey for the past 6 years and in this past hockey season I was fortunate enough to begin officiating with the Universities intramural league. This league played twice a week at the Civic Center, which is conveniently located close to campus. As well as officiating for the University I also am fortunate enough to officiate with the city of Brantford. It is a great job to have while going to school. I’m looking forward to officiate for both the City and the University in the years to come.
