"It was a natural fit for me to do a Bachelor of Science after high school since I've always loved biology. It's incredibly important for me to enjoy what I'm learning - that's when I work at my best. Doing a general Bachelor of Science allowed me to do this by giving me control over the classes I want to take, and the opportunity to learn about my interests and passions in the field of biology." Claudia is a fourth-year Science student at Campus Saint-Jean, and a member of the Peter Lougheed Leadership College.
