Hannah Oegema
When I began the Commerce program, I quickly fell in love with the people. The first day of Orientation, I met a group of incredible friends who are still by my side three years later. After attending a CPA Ontario networking session, I decided that the accounting path was perfect for me. The professors here want you to succeed and will give you the connections you need to set yourself up for the career you want. Because of the opportunities given to me by the university, I have already received full-time job offers for when I graduate in 2022.
