Written by Alexander College in Student Spotlight on April 12, 2019

In our newest spotlight, we get to know our current Alexander College student, Nicole Zou! Nicole hails from Beijing, China and is taking the University Transfer Program for Commerce at AC.

Nicole has been at AC for 2 years and is looking to one day find a job in the field of Commerce.

Her favourite course is Human Resources as it helps her understand how a big company operates and brings about many of her other interests.

Alexander College and Making Friends

In this video, she shares about her favourite services available at Alexander College, as well as how she makes friends on campus. An experience that she shares didn’t come naturally, but was rather an experience she grew into;

“ I kind of just sit there quietly waiting for people to approach me, but joining ACSA really helped me put myself out there and make friends.”


Nicole shares her advice and how not to  be afraid no matter where you come from.
