I went to Dalhousie very young and did not do well as I lacked direction. When my business venture on the Islands of Halifax Harbour was blocked from growth I decided to return to school at 31, with 3 kids and the support of my wife. I am grateful to Dalhousie for allowing me a second chance and allowing me to learn a trade which has given me a tremendously rewarding career. Good Luck to you all !
I hope we can keep all our students engaged and connected - connected with us and connected together.

I remember some hard times as a student, I cannot imagine anything as difficult as the uncertainty facing students.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the students unable to return home. They are such an important part of our community and deserve all the support we can give them.

Proud to support Dalhousie in this time of need
Support to students is the very essence of an higher education institution, and Dalhousie University surely embraces this idea, particularly in times of crisis.
We care, please stay well. Love
Let's hold up together!
Access to technology creates inclusion in education - the COVID-19 pandemic will create an even bigger socioeconomic disparity gap. I want to help close that gap.
These are unprecedented times and students need our help. Wishing everyone the best of health.
Significant advances in knowledge happen occasionally through chance, unanticipated events: the recovery of a Copper Age "glacier mummy" or the discovery of a blue whale carcass on the beach. It is a credit to the researchers who recognize these opportunities.
Great initiative. Happy to support the encouragement of more women being involved in politics. Good luck on reaching this goal!
