“The spirit of a man is constructed out of his choices.”

– Irvin D. Yalom


Student Counselling Services

University life is a major turning point for many students, and pursuing a degree opens the door to a new world. Whether it is academic knowledge or meeting new people, learning to study in a new way or discovering more of one’s gifts and skills, it is all a new process. This lifelong learning process comes with new responsibilities. We are required to make different decisions at different stages in life, and our university years are a stage in life where we can decide what our education will encompass. Is it just academic or both academic and self-development?

“The best investment you can make is in yourself.” ― Warren Buffett
