Stem Club Alumni Talks

With many of our STEM Club members starting to plan their post-secondary journeys, we felt it would be beneficial to hear from the experts. So, in May a few alumni joined our STEM Club both virtually and in-person to share how their experiences at DEL helped prepare them for post-secondary. All alumni shared that they were all well-prepared for their first year in university thanks to DEL’s rigorous academic programs and of course by the support from their teachers. A special shout-out to Mr. Sourial and Mr. Kulenkamp for the excellent math preparation! The alumni also shared their post-secondary experiences and gave some helpful tips to our students on what to consider when applying to their programs. Some noteworthy points included being sure to tour the university you want to attend to get a sense of whether the environment suits you, networking with Professors and peers through various clubs, and they were all thankful to previous DEL alumni who offered their words of support when requested. It was wonderful to see and hear from them and we continue to wish them much success. See below to find out what they are all up to!
