Algoma University Campus in Autumn

Surrounded by the natural beauty of northern Ontario, the university has a highly interactive community of just 1,200 students. They come from all around the world, and bring with them a wide variety of diverse backgrounds and cultures. This small community quickly connects people, and good friendships quickly blossom.

With “inclusion” being one of its key values, the university’s website attests; “At Algoma U, every student will find a place to belong”. Now, whether that “place” be found as a student of computer science, business, economics, community development, information technology or other… well, that’s what’s left to be decided!

*Algoma got top marks in the 2011 National Student Survey on Engagement (NSSE), which surveys things like student engagement and the accessibility of instructors outside the classroom.

Algoma is also a great option for students looking to work and learn at the same time – as many students choose to take part in the variety of work experience opportunities on offer, including co-op education and on-campus paid positions. No wonder that, according to Ontario government statistics, almost all Algoma graduates find employment within six months of graduating – with all students (100%) being employed within the following two years.
