Campus Ambassador,

5th Year Biochemistry

Richmond Hill, ON

What is UP future GOLDEN HAWKS! My name is Elias Dadoush and I am in my 5th year of the biochemistry program (yes I know Iím old). For most of my life I lived in Scarborough and then moved out to Richmond Hill when I first started university. Since I lived in the GTA for all of my life I wanted to move away from what I knew and explore a place I had never been before; the Waterloo/Kitchener area. It was a great time for me to be on my own, meet new people and really get an understanding of who I was as a person. The best part about my whole application process was I never went to any schools to see what they looked liked, or did any tours I just wanted to get far away from home as possible. Now that I work as a tour guide for Laurier I understand why it is so important to go on a tour. You need to be able to know what kinds of facilities are available to you and how a community like ours will work with your life.

Before I say goodbye I would like to give you two pieces of advice; the first is to go to every school you applied for and check them all out because the one you first thought would be the one could turn out to be different. Second have fun at university! Explore your options and meet new people. Thatís what itís all about, becoming a new you!
