Year: 4th

Hi Everyone! My name is Hillary, and I am a fourth year student in the Criminology program. I am from Oakville but North Bay has been my home away from home for the last four years and I absolutely love it here! I chose Nipissing mainly for the criminal justice program but I also loved the small campus and the strong sense of community. I would recommend Nipissing to prospective students because of the amount of opportunities I have gotten as a student here and the abundance of amazing services available to help us succeed. On campus I can often be found in the Harris Learning Library as it is an amazing place to spend an evening or a few hours between classes to study or just relax. My hobbies include hiking, running, volunteering, watching documentaries and playing sports. My favourites are lacrosse, hockey and rugby but I enjoy just about everything. At Nipissing, I have been a member of various extra-curricular groups including Enactus Nipissing, the Alpha Phi Sigma Criminal Justice Honours Society and I have also volunteered here to share my experiences as a student with prospective students and their families on campus. Once I graduate, I hope to stay somewhere in northern Ontario and pursue a career in law enforcement.
