Ernest Imoesi

“Enrolling (as a first year student) in the co-op program has played a big role in my education. Luckily for me, I got my first career-related job after the first semester of registering in the program and my semester since then has been less difficult. Most of the things I’ve also learned in my place of work has also helped me understand things that are taught in class much better”.
