"I have always known that getting education and being educated are two distinct goals and many people go through schools to get education without being educated. In search of both goals, I could not have made a better choice than Graduate Studies with the Department of Political Science, University of Calgary. The academic atmosphere was just incredible. Very learned professors who were ever ready to assist students with their academic needs. The staff, faculty and colleagues were incredibly welcoming and the course work both engaging and thought-provoking. The most outstanding attribute was the professionalism the administrators (especially the graduate administrator) brought to their work. Not only were they professional in their formal relationship with students, they were equally professional in their informal relationships with students as well. I just loved the way the graduate administrator responded swiftly to student inquiries. I would not need a second opinion to make a choice as to where to pursue graduate studies when there is University of Calgary in my options, because my 2-year stay with them was awesome."
