WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Student clubs. Research experiences. Volunteering. Leading study sessions for fellow students. Allison Farfus is truly someone who made the most out of her university experience.
Looking back at her time at uLethbridge, Allison describes the last four years, which included more than a few all-nighters, as “busy but very rewarding.” The key to her success, she says, is being involved as a student, something that was made possible thanks to the many scholarships she received.
“My first year I spent most my time in my room studying. Once I started getting involved with the community, my grades soared and the more scholarships I received,” says Allison, who received more than a dozen scholarships during her time at uLethbridge.
“The more awards I got, the better my grades became. This meant I could become more involved on campus and spend my summers working in the lab without having to worry about debt.”
When Allison crossed the stage at the Spring 2017, she received the Faculty of Arts & Science gold medal for sciences. She’s now off to University of Calgary's Cumming School of Medicine.
