David

Hometown: Port Coquitlam, BC
Program: Bachelor of Arts – English

Why CUE?: I chose CUE for two main reasons: the class sizes are smaller, and the Education program is by far the best in Alberta. My favourite thing about campus is the river valley. I am able to go out and explore Edmonton’s river valley after school, and each time brings a different and fun experience.

Favourite class? Introduction to the Profession of Teaching (ED 199) has been my favourite class at CUE so far. In this course, you get the opportunity to visit each level of primary schooling and experience what a teacher has to do on a day to day basis.

Future Goals? Junior High/Senior High English and Social Teacher

Hobbies? I am very much a seasonal person. In the summer I enjoy going backpacking in the mountains and biking through the river valley. In the winter I enjoy snowshoeing, skiing, and ice fishing.

Anything else? I am a social butterfly. I enjoy getting to know people and talking about their experiences, making new friends and connections along the way.


Hermella

Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Program: Bachelor of Arts – Sociology

Why CUE? I decided to come to CUE for two reasons: the good reputation of the education program and the small class sizes. I love that here at CUE. The smaller number of students make it very easy for you to get involved around campus. One of my favourite things at CUE is how everyone feels like family and I feel comfortable and welcomed around campus.

Favourite class? University Foundation. I really enjoyed this course because of the professor. Ms. Fitzgerald was very passionate about her job and you could tell that she loved what she was doing. Her energy throughout the semester allowed me to find joy within the course and do great. Being a student who is pursuing teaching as a career, I value this trait within a professor.

Future Goals? To become an elementary school teacher

Hobbies? I love to bake cakes and treats for my baking business.

Anything else? I am also the President of the Afro Club and part of the Rotaract Club at CUE.


Janine

Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Program: Bachelor of Science – Biology

Why CUE? I chose CUE because I really like the size of the classrooms. I love that there’s not too many people as I have been struggling with anxiety for a while now. I also chose CUE because I had a friend that graduated here who told me about how great her experience was, especially with the professors.

Favourite class? Psychology has been my favourite so far. I’ve been dealing with some mental health issues and these courses have really helped me to overcome some of these issues. It’s interesting to learn about the strategies that people use to cope with their mental health issues.

Future Goals? Possibly go into nursing and start a business.

Hobbies? I love to draw, play the piano, play volleyball and soccer, go on walks with my dog, create resin art, and travel to the mountains.


Lily

Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Program: Bachelor of Science – Biology

Why CUE? I chose CUE for the small class sizes and great science program which integrates research into the senior years of your program. My favourite thing about CUE is the community on campus and the ability to get to know your professors. CUE has so many amazing faculty members and being able to meet and learn from some of them due to the small classes has been so valuable.

Favourite class? My favourite course thus far would have to be Molecular Genetics (BIO 207) with Dr. Hemmerling. This was a great course because it involved real life application and logic which made it very engaging. Additionally, Dr.Hemmerling always made lectures interactive which created a great learning environment in the classroom.

Future Goals? I hope to get into medical school after completing my undergrad at CUE and continue on to become a family practitioner.

Hobbies? I enjoy reading and going for walks when the weather is nice. Most recently, I have been re-learning how to play the piano, which I first learned as a child.


Maddison

Hometown: Whitecourt, AB
Program: Bachelor of Science – Biology

Why CUE? I went to a small high school so the transition to CUE was nice because it was not overwhelming. My favourite thing about CUE is the interaction with all students.

Favourite class? Introductory Biochemistry (BIOCH 200) was super interesting and I learned a lot of new concepts!

Hobbies? I like to play volleyball, work out, and watch hockey


Steffi

Hometown: Bogota, Columbia
Program: Bachelor of Science – Biology

Why CUE? The fact that it is a small university. When you are coming to a place where you don’t know anybody, CUE makes you feel welcomed and taken care of.

Future Goals? I want to work with Canadian Blood Services and join an investigation group to develop something relevant for the world.

Hobbies? I like to dance, listen to music, go out for a walk, party and be with animals.

Tara

Hometown: Sooke, BC
Program: Bachelor of Management – Leadership

Why CUE? I met an ambassador from CUE at my high school after applying. I was nervous about embarking on a new journey, but hopeful to get into the school and really start my life. The CUE ambassador was so encouraging and helpful; it was like he wanted me there. My favourite thing about CUE has always been the sense of community.

Favourite class? I loved Business Law (BUS 210) and Business Ethics (MGT 474). Both deals with laws and rights in a business setting. I find both classes really entertaining because there is room for students to explain their beliefs.

Future Goals? I want to run my own companies and be my own boss!

Hobbies? I love reading, writing, hiking, being outdoors, and being with my 4-month-old puppy Grizzly.

Anything else? I am always happy to answer questions from prospective students, and can’t wait until they choose CUE!
