Student Sound Offs

"Even though it's in the heart of Quebec, it's really a multicultural institution."

"The university has an international emphasis. It promotes and provides 'mobility scholarships' to enable students to have an international profile and be able to enter the job market more easily."

"I am a pharmacy student, and we constantly learn about the latest advancements in the medical and pharmacy fields. The majority of our teachers also write scientific articles, thus providing us with the most up-to-date information."

"Because it's a little campus, there's lots of intimate contacts between students in classes. The professors take the success of their students to heart."

"It's like a big village: people are friendly and everyone talks to each other.""Underground tunnels connect all the buildings and residences -- very useful in horrible weather!"

"The small number of students in classes creates a good rapport with professors and makes learning more personal and more centred."

"The school spirit is definitely the best thing about my school, everyone gets into sports and cheers, it's great."

"I love the campus setting, especially spring and fall. Lots of trees, green lawns, squirrels, people playing soccer and Frisbee ... it's relaxing."

"People underestimate Quebec City. They think that because it's not in Montreal, it's not as good."
