What our students say

a photo of giulia de leo"For the first two years of university I was pursuing a degree in nursing. When I made the switch I realized that the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management was the perfect degree that married my love for health activity and science. I viewed this field as preventative health care – helping to keep people moving and out of the hospitals and living longer, healthier and happier lives."

-Giulia De Leo, B.Kin, Class of 2008
