Grad Testimonial

Hi, I am Sehnaz from Turkey. I came to Canada as an international student. I study Community Service Worker at Evergreen College. The most important reason of my choosing Toronto is it's being a metropolitan as well as a safe city. The counseling services of the college were quite fast and professional and that was the biggest factor that comes forward during my applications. The campus is located in a very safe and convenient. All of the educators and the staff in the college are so kind, helpful and friendly. You will find yourself in such a warm place that will help you to overcome homesickness. I advise Evergreen College to anyone who wants to study abroad.
