My son and I finished the whirlwind tour of universities last week although there is still one more option to review.
As a parent, it was an interesting experience. I did not know the extent to which Ontario universities consider parental concerns as part of the process. And I was quite impressed.
The Honours Business Adminstration program at Laurier stood out in terms of the quality of presentation and the passion of its staff and students. If I were starting out as a young man I would give serious consideration to the Laurier experience.
So, in another couple of weeks, we’ll do a formal debrief and my son will make his decision. The Dean of Laurier had this to say: “There are really no bad choices in Ontario. We are well served by our universities.” And so there are really no bad choices for my son. Although there is a pretty good one on the table.
