… But first, let's get to know Jenn

Hello there! My name is Jenn and I am in my fourth year in the Concurrent Education program at Brock! More specifically, one day I want to be a French teacher at a middle school. I was born in Ottawa but my family and I moved to Toronto when I was three years old so I am a city-girl. That being said, I love anything outdoors! I have traveled a lot as I have been to Australia, Japan, Europe, Cuba and throughout North America. I am always on the go and this year I am a member of the Residence Life Staff as Quarry View’s Don of Academics, so if any of you have any residence questions, please feel free to respond to my posts! I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and explain my love for Brock. Originally Brock was my 5th choice as I got accepted into all the Canadian "Ivy-League" schools, but it wasn’t until I visited the campus that I truly gave Brock a shot. I loved the fact that Brock was a mid-sized campus where I could truly find a community so I could meet like-minded individuals, while also meeting others with diverse interests. I loved the feel of the campus from the open-concept spaces to the gorgeous surrounding landscape of the Niagara Escarpment. Ever since I accepted my offer to Brock as my post-secondary institution I have NEVER been happier! I know so many professors and teaching assistants on a first-name basis that have been my references and provided me with jobs and opportunities that have been great for my resume building towards my future career! I have met some lifelong friends from all walks of life from all over the world! I chose Brock University because it offered something for everyone - including me!
