Uyen is currently a student volunteer at University Canada West and has gone above and beyond to help the institution with its student related endeavours.
Below she highlights how her time at the university has been so far.
Why did you choose UCW?
Since UCW is a small private university, I know I can study with great support from not only professors but also staff. In addition, the campus is in downtown Vancouver, which is very convenient for any activity, including finding a part-time job.
What do you like about UCW?
I like the fact that professors know students by name and they give feedback based on the ability of each individual student. Also, the librarians are amazingly helpful. They are very patient and knowledgeable.
How is UCW preparing you for your future career?
Career Services department looked at my resume and told me how to improve it. UCW also organized workshops about job interviews which they told us what to wear, how to introduce and present ourselves. UCW also invited guest speakers from different industries to come and share their experiences with students, which helped students have better visions about their future and expectations.
