Second-Year Social Work
Hey future Golden Hawks!
My name is Jenna Berseth and I am very excited to show off my wonderful school as a Student Ambassador for Laurier in 2016/17. I transferred to Laurier last year and I am going into my second year of Social Work in the upcoming school year. I like Laurier because of how small the Brantford campus is and their wonderful programs in my areas of interest; when I came to the spring open house I knew Laurier Brantford was the place I would call home for the next four years.
Transferring to Laurier was a hard decision; it meant leaving my friends and my old school. Now, looking back, I could not be happier with my decision to come here! If I could go back and tell my high school self one thing, it would be that I did not have to have everything figured out right away. So many of my plans have changed since then and as time passes, I continue to discover ways I can apply my skillset and find new avenues to explore.
Having experienced my first year in a new university two years in a row, I have learned many ways to make the most out of my time. The best suggestion I have is to get involved! Last year I was a part of an intramural dodgeball team for my residence floor and part of Youth Leaders on Board, volunteering for Laurier events and many other exciting things. My favourite experience was my time spent with Peer Connect, starting conversations centred on mental health and fighting the stigma surrounding it.
Some of my favourite memories at Laurier revolve around volunteering and meeting such wonderful people interested in the same things as I am! I also found people in my extracurricular activities who took the same classes as me and I soon realized that my peers were one of my most important resources. My favourite class is Psychology and I plan to declare a minor in it.
I could not have imagined when I accepted Laurier Brantford as my school a short year ago that it meant I would create such amazing memories and be introduced to so many wonderful people. I have never been to a more welcoming and caring school and I hope to see you around next year!
