"As a transfer student, my experiences at Nipissing University have been exceptional. Nipissing University and the Office of Indigenous Initiatives have made my transition into my program effortless and have provided me with the support needed to succeed. As an Indigenous student, cultural activities fostered within the Office of Indigenous Initiatives have impacted my studies in unimaginable ways. Having this cultural foundation allowed me to explore opportunities within the community and make connections through an Indigenous lens."

Marley, 3rd Year Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice student
