Academic Achievement & Community Engagement Housing Scholarship

Meet Our 2022 Recipient

Lauren Constantino
“As a scholarship recipient, Parkside has given me the once in a lifetime opportunity of staying at their residence. It is close to campus, which has helped me focus on my studies and navigating Toronto without having to worry about a long commute. They have many amenities to offer, such as the fitness room, kitchens, study rooms, and an outdoor terrace; all of which are clean and enjoyable to use. Personally, my favourite thing to do is get schoolwork done in the glass box, as it helps me be productive and stay motivated. All of the staff have been extremely helpful and kind, and any issues or concerns that you may have will be resolved quickly. I find that this student residence has so much to offer, with a good balance of both privacy and community. They hold many community building events that you surely will not find anywhere else. I have already met many new people and created bonds that will truly last beyond my stay here. Thank you, Parkside, I will be forever grateful!”

“I’m very happy for Parkside’s support and I admire their generosity and kindness! Their amenities were awesome, the gym is nicely designed and it’s evident they truly put students first and care. This scholarship allowed me to feel comfortable being in the city for the first time, and living at Parkside helped me adjust fast. This opportunity to live close to everything has made my life 10 times better! I’m very happy for how everything ended up working out.”

“Thank you very much for your support. As a first-year student entering university during the pandemic, there was a big transition. With your scholarship I have been able to focus my energy on both my studies and passions, making my first-year experience way better than I could have ever imagined. As volunteering is a big passion of mine, this opportunity to live close to campus and get involved in local community projects is really amazing. I am now almost at the end of my first year of university, and I am so happy about how things have turned out.”
