“I was very drawn to the hands-on one-on-one learning style, as I am from a small town,” she adds.
Jolly, originally from a small town in southwestern Manitoba, says she aspired to complete a degree in agriculture. However, she was uncertain as to how attainable her dream was. It wasn’t until attending Lakeland where she surrounded herself with instructors who not only provided her with the learning tools to go to university, they also provided the encouragement to accomplish her dream.
“Attending Lakeland helped me immensely on the path to achieving my goal. The instructors are very passionate about the material they teach, and deliver it in a manner that can be easily interpreted,” says Jolly. “They also care very much about their students and put in the effort to ensure students understand the material. I remember ample instances where the instructors set aside time after class to provide me with assistance on topics I was unclear of.”
At the end of spring, Jolly will graduate from the University of Saskatchewan with a bachelor of science in agriculture, majoring in environmental sciences. She was able to achieve her goal by transferring her education from Lakeland, where she not only made lifelong friends but “had experiences that will last a lifetime.”
