Ben Froese is a fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Arts program; he is majoring in sociology and minoring in philosophy. Raised in Kamloops, Ben describes university as an opportunity to experience and learn so much more in life – from both the classes to the people he’s met from all over the world, from the comfort of his hometown. Ben, an avid volunteer, commits much of his spare time to his church as well as with some of the Christian clubs on campus. He seeks to be a source of encouragement and support to others, enjoys connecting with people and hearing their stories. Ben also appreciates reading, hiking, golfing, and road trips. Through his work at TRU, Ben strives to do what he can to make life a little bit better for students; he loves to working alongside others who share that same vision.
