I transfered to complete my degree at Carleton University. I did enjoy the experience however I never truly felt challenged in my undergrad. I want more than anything to be able to study abroad to learn a second language and to experience a European lifestyle that I've become so fond of in my travels.

Great Uni to get YOUR Undergrad Degree

Definitely a good choice, excited that I can say I've lived in Ottawa. The university was very helpful always and willing to help which was nice. They provide a variety of help and options for accommodation.
