Small size, supportive environment, program choices, close to home, easy, quick commute, staying close to my job, staying close to friends, good reviews from current students, positive experiences on and off campus.
It is well designed but too repetitive. Students who did well in high school find the intro courses much too easy, but they make awesome GPA boosters each year. There should be an entrance test though, as many people do not have the social/psych/child background needed to thrive.
It is very small and intimate, being from a small town that is important. MSVU also has a well-known psychology program, which is what I wanted to take. I love the location, and everything about it there (except for the awful parking).
Overall, I think the curriculum is okay. It depends on what you're looking at and what faculty you're looking into. Some classes try and jam way too much into such a small period of time, making me wish some were more focused - but overall, good.
I opted mainly for the public relations program as it is the only school in Canada that offers a public relations undergraduate. I also liked the small class sizes offered with my classes being typically around 20 students.
I love my program curriculum and specific courses. I find that a lot of classes build on what is taught in others. It is very relevant information about my study and what I should expect if I get a job in that field.
It's local and the only university in the Halifax regional minister polity that offered a nutrition program. Also, this campus has very small class sizes and the professors are great they are very personable and down to earth and they all maintain a good student and professor relationship.
The curriculum is mostly relevant there's some stuff that we have to study that I don't understand how it will be related to what I want to do for a living. Which is why I think we should have more freedom with what we want to study.
They are known for their Independent research opportunities. Moreover, they have smaller classes, which allows teachers to focus on their students and vice versa, easy access to teachers for questions.
The courses that need to be taken are a good array of subjects. It includes math biology and chemistry. However, I wish there was a wider range of subjects within each program. Such as having a more diverse class in biology.
