Peter Liu, a third year Bachelor of Health Sciences student at the University of Calgary, has been awarded the 3M National Student Fellowship. The award recognizes 10 Canadian students each year for their outstanding leadership qualities and achievements in advancing student learning.
“I believe going to lectures is only one part of our post-secondary education,” said Liu. “What's equally as important, if not more important, is learning who you are, finding your passion, and aligning your education with your lifelong pursuits. I have benefited a lot from extracurricular and leadership opportunities on-campus, and I hope to do the same for my peers."
