  • At Simon Fraser University, they really want you to join. I was a mature student who never got the chance to finish high school, but after taking a few prerequisites I got in! They look after you while you go through your application process and that was really important to me, knowing nothing about the system and procedures of a university. I appreciate everyone's help and an extra shout out to the NOW program facilitators, who helped me most! Now that I was admitted, I just have to study hard. 🎓
  • I had a bit of an unusual/difficult academic situation when applying to the school, so in advance I spoke with representatives before spending 75$ to apply. I later found out the school provided me with incorrect information regarding the admission process, they weren't apologetic when I mentioned that I was given wrong information. Other people working in the department replied to my emails with very political, unhelpful, generic copy and paste responses, making it difficult to actually find someone who had any answers. Even when I did, it was communicated in a very vague and general way. Oh well.
  • Beautiful campus. Decent bus service, obviously falls short of UBC but it has NightBus at least. Residences are really nice, and all single rooms, but I still prefer living off-campus within the Vancouver city limits. The nature and serenity is what hooked me when I first visited. It really feels like a college town, especially because it's rather secluded up on the mountain. Trees everywhere, smells great.
  • I like this place. Not as big as UBC. My second choice as an undergraduate was SFU.
  • hello, how is the quality of education at SFU compared to UBC , waterloo and mcgill
