"Choosing History at UWindsor was the best decision I ever made. My degree was as unique as they come—balancing History with Biological Sciences—but from day one, I was encouraged that my diverse interests were a strength. The History department gave me every opportunity to succeed, from office hours spent going line-by-line through my papers teaching me to write like a historian to a hands-on research assistantship. The skills I gained are not abstract. I use them every day in my career as a history editor—a job I owe to my professors who invested in me."
