Ambassador Profile- Jessika
My Laurier Brantford ExperienceHello there! My name is Jessika Miller and I am in my 4th 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! 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 outdoors. I have officiated hockey for the past 8 years and in 2012 I was fortunate enough to begin officiating with Laurier's intramural league. This league plays 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 look forward to officiating for both the City and the University in the years to come and of course to see all your smiling faces on my tours!
