I chose Laurentian University because they provided me with the best articulation agreement, allowing me to transfer many of my college credits to get my BSc Biology degree in two years! The academic advisors were very supportive in helping me adjust to university and find the right courses to meet my graduation requirements. Laurentian gave me everything I needed and more!
