Canyon Sinclair
I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I had many opportunities on campus, largely thanks to the small classes. The connections you make can propel you into whatever future you want if you put in an honest effort and work hard. Canyon Sinclair, 2021 Bachelor of Business Administration graduate
Katie Doherty
Choosing TRU was the best decision I could have made. Not only did the professors want to see me succeed, they encouraged me to take advantage of all the opportunities TRU had to offer, which really helped me differentiate myself in my post grad job search. Katie Doherty, 2017 BBA graduate with double major in marketing and international business
