“Brescia is an environment that fosters excellence, leadership and the value of colleagues. Honestly, these three attributes can and will take you through anything. At Brescia, I learned: excellent writing, research and presentation skills; obtained a thirst for knowledge; an appreciation for differences and a focus on creating and maintaining relationships. But, what do I apply to my career? All of these things”
“I immediately loved Brescia’s all-women’s environment, its smaller campus and small class sizes. But, at the same time, as a Brescia student it was amazing to have access to and be part of the larger campus at Western. So, being a Brescia student was almost a two-for-one experience – both academically and on a social level.”
“I really believe Brescia changed my life and I want the same for others. In the next 100 years I hope the University’s mission can go global! I want women outside of Canada, like myself, to have the opportunity to experience the power of Brescia’s education so the women of tomorrow can tap into their own limitless potential.”
“My relationship with Brescia since the very beginning is profound. I was not only trying to achieve my university credentials, but also looking for a place where I could think more deeply about life. Brescia gave me all this and more – helping me feel safe when I needed it, but also challenging me to achieve academically better and to search for a life that was bigger than mere “individualism.””
