A typical day starts with reading and responding to emails to get what you have to do for the day. Time management is a key part of the research assistant. Good advisory committee to guide you complete your research study. I enjoyed the weekly seminars organized by the department of agriculture and bio-resource.

It was a great place to work. It was fulfilling and rewarding professionally and personally. I had a great boss who was flexible, understanding and a good mentor.

The best University in the west, I did my Ph.D. There were enough resources and I have attended many conferences during the program. They have the best professors in Canada

The supervisors I worked with are nice and welcoming but I could have achieved more if they were a little more pushy because I was a lazy student. Most of time during my last three years at U of S I sufferred from serious stress and mental breakdown becasue of lacking materials for thesis defence. I wasted too much time there and I blame myself for this constantly while working under hudge peer-pressure and insanely strong competition now
