    Being associated with a name like Waterloo has been a lifetime desire for me. Since Conrad is a prestigious part of Waterloo. I opted to study here upon getting the offer from the college. I applied through the OUAC application which is the common application for all the universities in Ontario. The application fee for the same was $150.

    Course Curriculum :

    Through the curriculum I am trained upon various ancient philosophies and there implementation in today's world. My teachers try to inculcate values in us through the curriculum that help us evolve philosophy as a field.
