There are many lessons to be learned at university both inside and outside of the classroom. During my time at Ryerson University, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in the Co-op program, which is designed for students to receive work experience in their respective field.
I’d heard so many great things about the program, however, I still wasn’t convinced. “Co-op can’t be that life changing,” was what I told myself in my second year. Boy, was I ever wrong.
