Join us as we showcase a testimonial every Tuesday. This week's alumni testimonial is Mercedes Robinson, a student who first began studying Kinesiology at St. Peter's in the Fall of 2018. During her first year at SPC, Mercedes was fortunate enough to make the Dean's Honour List and is on her path of maintaining this success. Mercedes has since moved onto the University of Saskatchewan to continue her studies in a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology - Exercise and Sport Studies.
When asked about her thoughts of St. Peter's College, Mercedes provided the following:
"Hello, my name is Mercedes Robinson. I am from Watson and took my first year of University at St. Peter’s College studying Kinesiology.
My choice to begin my studies at St. Peter’s College was because the main campus was intimidating in my mind. St. Peter’s College caught my interest, as it offered a smaller work environment and class sizes, plus I had the chance to spend another year paying less expenses while staying at home.
I took advantage of the variety of entrance scholarships that St. Peter’s College has to offer. I ended up earning one of the Clem and Hedy Gerwing scholarships and put it all towards my tuition for the year and other expenses.
Something that numerous may not know about the college is that the St. Peter’s College Fitness Center is often used, but I have never seen more than 5 individuals in it at any given time, making the equipment always accessible while exercising in a quiet environment."
