Atlantic Canadian Universities Visiting Bermuda

September 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

Eight Atlantic Canadian universities are visiting Bermuda next week in order to meet with prospective students and share information about their post-secondary institutions.

A spokesperson said, “This visit is part of an ongoing relationship, as many Bermudian students have been attracted to institutions throughout Atlantic Canada.

“While many high schools will receive visits from the post-secondary representatives, students, parents, and community members are invited to attend the Atlantic Canadian Education Fair on Monday, October 2 at The Fairmount Hamilton Princess from 6:30-8:30 p.m.|

“We’re excited to return to Bermuda to connect with students about their post-secondary options in our region,” said Katherine Cross, visit coordinator and assistant registrar at Dalhousie University.

“From actuarial science and business to social sciences, engineering, ocean and atmospheric science programs, the eight visiting universities are well positioned to help students thrive in their post-secondary studies, and achieve their academic and career goals.”

“Bermudian students are earning world-class educations in Atlantic Canada and are exceling in their fields. St. Francis Xavier University Accounting graduate Caroline Berlo’s academic experience propelled her into a successful career. After completing an internship following her freshman year, Berlo now works as an Audit Senior with Ernest and Young [EY] in Bermuda, the same company where she interned.”

Ms. Berlo said, “St. FX truly cultivated the path for success in my professional career and allowed me to set high personal goals for myself, goals I have lived up to.”

“NSCAD University graduate and Berkeley Institute alumnus Duane Jones pursued his passion for design through the Communication Design program and started his own clothing design company, Art Pays.”

Mr. Jones said, “We design clothing for the creative and woke. We represent artists, designers, writers, and everyone in between who are told they can’t make a living off of their passion.”

“While many high schools will receive visits from the post-secondary representatives, students, parents, and community members are invited to attend the Atlantic Canadian Education Fair on Monday, October 2 at The Fairmount Hamilton Princess from 6:30-8:30pm.

“The fair and school visits will allow students to begin their post-secondary journey like current Dalhousie student, and Mount Saint Agnes Academy graduate, Nathan Burgess did seven years ago when he was in grade 10. Now at Dalhousie University, Burgess will graduate from the Kinesiology Program in 2018 and plans to continue his studies in Physiotherapy in the UK.

Mr. Burgess said, “I’m proud to be a Bermudian student graduating from university in Atlantic Canada in the Spring.”
