To see how the University of Guelph prepares students to improve life in the wider world, look to recent graduate Brianna Guild, winner of the 2016 Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE) Student of the Year Award. Guild, who earned a degree in biochemistry, was selected as Canada’s top co-op student for her work as a research assistant on campus studying how human cells respond to physiological oxygen conditions.

Guild plans to harness those work and learning experiences during graduate studies in speech-language pathology and, ultimately, in pursuing a career that enables her to make a difference in the world.

“I chose U of G because of the co-op program, but coming from high school, I knew little about biochemistry. My classes helped prepare me for the lab, and co-op gave me great work experiences,” said Guild, who is applying to master’s programs for speech-language pathology.
