It is in an amazing location with great professors. I also knew people who went here that I really respected and heard that it was the best school for my program. I fit in well when I came to visit this school and liked the overall atmosphere and environment. It is a fun and educational school that I really enjoy attending.
I really enjoy the course curriculum. I am extremely interested in physical activity and health and well being. I love learning about physical activity and nutrition and education my myself and others on the topics of physical education and well being.
I chose Brock because of its proximity to home, its low cost of tuition, and the fact that I was offered many more scholarships, bursaries, and awards than any of the other universities that I applied to.
Overall, the curriculum taught at Brock University was adequate. I was well equipped for the workforce through what I learned. However, I would say that although some courses were full of up-to-date information, others taught us about obsolete technology.
Nice location and a good program. Also fairly close to my home and I love the city it is located in. It is all around the amazing school. It's also a really nice size and suitable for me. The people here are terrific.
Most are very relatable to my personal and professional goals and ambitions. However, some courses could be better in this regard. The field work is practical. Overall, I enjoy the curriculum in most of my courses.
This college is relatively close to home and has the program that I was looking to enroll in. It also has a beautiful campus and I had some friends attending this school as well. It is a helpful and friendly environment that encourages me to excel every day.
I believe that the curriculum is fair and the workload is reasonable. I believe that I am being taught everything that I need to know in order to do well in my courses and continue on with my schooling/career in an appropriate way.
Good co-op program. I was offered some incentive to attend money wise but the main reason I went to Brock is that I have family in the area and I was able to move in with them to save a lot of money in living expenses.
Lots of overlap with course material, otherwise good. Mostly general chemistry and biology than biochemistry though which is understandable given this knowledge is needed before diving into biochemistry.
