    For me, lakehead offered an exceptional sense of community, says Jocelin. as early as first year, Jocelin found the hands-on academic training, the openness of professors, and the close-knit classes allowed her to build an unparalleled student experience. During the summers in university, she had a wide range of jobs from breeding bird surveys in southern ontario, to industrial forestry work in north-eastern British columbia. By the time she was in her final year, she had helped organize student conferences related to her field of study and served as president of the lakehead University Forestry association. So it comes as no surprise that because of her volunteer activity, consulting, and professional development on the west coast, the canadian institute of Forestry awarded Jocelin the first-ever prince of Wales award for Sustainable Forestry just two years after graduating.

  • 4When lakehead started its journey 50 years ago, who could have known the university would one day grow to encompass a new campus in orillia. or that it would eventually be home to 8,700 students from across ontario, canada and the world. or have over 320 faculty conducting cutting-edge research. or have 55,000 alumni around the world. Who could have known that its modest beginnings would flourish into what lakehead is today?

    a lot can change in half a century, but some things havent. lakehead students stand out now as much as everstudents who are eager for adventure, students who carve out their own vision for success, and students who seek innovative scholarship.

    thats why lakehead has always valued, above all else, relationship: between you and your fellow students, between you and the student services staff who help along the way, and between you and your professors. lakehead student roman Jakubowski says:

    Instead of walking into crowded lecture halls every day, I walk into classrooms full of my close friends. Were doing something we love and were all putting our own unique spin on it. I couldnt picture myself anywhere other than Lakehead.

    thats the lakehead difference.
