How did you benefit from the co-op program?

The co-op program allowed me to gain experience in the corporate world, apply theories I had learned from my business classes, and make connections that have turned into lasting relationships. After completing each of my co-op terms I returned to Brock with real examples from the workplace that I applied to business cases and group projects which allowed me to succeed in my university career.  

Best memory of your time at Brock University?

The best friends I made at Brock were during my only summer term for classes, there was a much smaller group of us compared to during the year and we all had the same classes, shared the same workload, and created lasting memories. It was a lot of fun! 

Advice to current co-op students?

Don’t lose your focus in such a way that your co-op career will be compromised, and do anything and everything while on your co-op terms to showcase your talent to your employer.
