“uLethbridge gave me confidence that I could do well at whatever I studied. Being able to study and excel in different courses helped me realize that law school could be a reality for me.”
When Carson Foggin came to uLethbridge, he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do with his life. Four years later, the recent grad is charting a path towards a legal career.
“I chose uLethbridge because of its location, affordable tuition, and for the wide range of courses and programs,” he said. “Because it’s a smaller institution, professors here were better able assist me because they knew me and my goals.”
Through his time in the Indigenous Studies program and volunteer work as a youth mentor, Carson became interested in legal issues around Indigenous rights and treaty negotiations, prompting him to consider becoming a lawyer.
As Carson heads to the University of Alberta for law school, he has this advice for new university students.
“I think many students begin their educational journey with their plans set in stone, which is fine. However, you may become passionate about something different than what you had originally anticipated so don't be scared to change your plans.”
