What students say about life at Sheridan

Tianyi Zhong from China

"So much happened in four years, and every moment was precious to me. There was a lot of fun, learning, and great experiences. I'm from China, so studying at Sheridan made me 12,000 km away from my home. At first, I had some worries and challenges, but as things unfolded I started to see all the beauty of this country."

– Tianyi Zhong, Honours Bachelor of Animation student from China

Carlos Gama from Brazil

"I applied and got into four schools and I chose Sheridan. ... I couldn't be happier with my decision, because instead of the winter wasteland I thought I'd find, I discovered a country full of warm people that welcomes and respects people's cultures."

– Carlos Gama, Honours Bachelor of Film and Television student from Brazil

Dhruv Kapoor from India

"I really cannot put into words how vibrant the college life has been. It is essentially the cultural diversity, the people we become friends with, and the things we do that give us memories to treasure for a lifetime."

– Dhruv Kapoor, Advertising and Marketing Communications Management student from India
