    Testimonials

    My experience at St. Lawrence College was unlike most. After years spent at home, as a foster parent, and at 43 years old, I made what turned out to be the best decision of my life - to enrol in the relatively new degree program at SLC titled "BAA Behavioural Psychology".  Since it had been a long time since I was in school, I chose to enter SLC via the 1-year Pre-BAA Behavioural Psychology certificate program first.  Following 5 very intense, but worthwhile years of study, I graduated at 48 years old, with distinction, with both a college certificate and a BAA Behavioural Psychology degree (now called an Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology), in addition to having gained a list of volunteer experiences, some new lifelong friends, and a host of network connections along the way.

    I had secured permanent employment 5 months prior to my graduation, thanks to the experiences gained during my thesis practicum, which took me into the Canadian Arctic, and my starting salary had six figures in it!  I have succeeded in that position, mainly because of the solid, educational background that I had been given during my time at St. Lawrence College. When you have a solid knowledge base to build on, as well as experiential knowledge gained during the 3 placements I had while in the program, confidence in the working world is easy. That new-found confidence, that my St. Lawrence College education gave me, has sent my life off on a new trajectory of what I like to refer to as #ExperiencesOfALifetime, since my graduation in April of 2014.

    I now happily promote SLC placement positions with my current employer, to present-day BPSYC program students, to help them kickstart their careers in much the same way as I did.  I am forever grateful to St. Lawrence College for what they have done for me in helping me to build a career that started this late in life.
