"I know I must be a committed graduate of Telfer since I can still recite my old student number! Seriously, I really enjoyed my four years at University of Ottawa. Learned a lot and met great people who I am still in touch with today. I am struck with just how many of these fellow graduates have achieved impressive career paths. Today, competition for just an entry spot on a career path is intense - whether it's a corporate or entrepreneurial opportunity. Accordingly, it's important for us old "boomer" grad's to lend a hand where we can."
