I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I had many oportunities on campus, largely thanks to the small classes. The connections you make can propel you into whatever future you want if you put in an honest effort and work hard."

After completing my undergraduate degree at TRU, it was an easy decision to return for a law degree. I got to know members of the community while playing volleyball for the WolfPack, so I knew exactly how welcoming and supportive Kamloops is of its students.”

During my first tour of campus, we stopped at Cplul’kw’ten and they had cupcakes. I’m not sure if they were there for us or if we just stopped in on the right day, but we ended up staying awhile and I just really felt welcomed. Cplul’kw’ten helped me find balance my first few years at TRU."
