2013-2014 Dean’s Honour List

Adil Skalli

Major: Political Science/Communications, 3rd year

Home: Morocco

“There’s not just one thing I want to do. I want to do everything. I want to teach, to write, to work in development, to work with international organizations. FPA allowed me to discover this world… although I seem to have more questions than answers now.”

Madeleine Le Jeune

Major: Communications, 2nd year

Home: Aylmer, Quebec

“It helped when I got to know my professors. I talked to them during office hours and asked them questions about what we’re learning, rather than just reading the textbook.

Plus, my mother supports me completely.”

Dillon Brady

Major: Criminology, graduated 2014. Working in federal government.

Home: North Gore, Ontario

“I made the Dean’s Honour List every year. It was a lot of hard work. You had to prioritize school over a social life, but I had a group of like-minded friends and we would stay in at night and study together.

Plus, I grew up with my dad always telling me I could do better.”

Bernie Brady: “And he always did!”

Olivia Hoe, Erica Howes, Natasha Grodzinski, Arianna Danganan, Zoe Chong

Major: Journalism, 3rd year

“No sleep and no social life!”

“Texts at 3 am!”

“Lots of coffee!”

“My mom would take me out to dinner.”

“The best part is that we get to talk to really cool people.”

Ayla Moreash

Major: Communications, 2nd year

Home: Toronto

“I really looked forward to some classes because the professors were so interesting and approachable. And with the big research courses, the teaching assistants offered a lot of help.”

John Moreash: “It was a lot of hard work and desire on Ayla’s part. She’s the first person in our family to make the Dean’s list.”
