In 2013 Lindsay Feuer (BSW/16) had never heard of Booth University College. She was applying to social work programs and then a friend of her parents asked if she knew about Booth UC. The friend spoke very highly of the institution and recommended Lindsay check it out.
After attending the orientation, Lindsay applied for the 2-year after degree program in Social Work and was delighted to be accepted. Lindsay’s experience at Booth UC was “phenomenal” and she can’t say enough good things about her time there. She developed some close friendships and even met her best friend at Booth UC. For Lindsay, it is the relationships she made with other students and especially the professors like Bonnie Bryant, Buetta Warkentin, Dr. Cynthia Sottie and Dr. Alex Sawatsky that stand out, and she continues to be in touch with them. After graduation, Lindsay went to work at the Jewish Child and Family Services. She credits her practicum experience with enabling her to move into that role.
Ready for a new challenge, Lindsay moved to Toronto in 2019 where her experiences at Booth UC serve her well as a School Counselor at the Netivot HaTorah Day School. Lindsay will know in September if she will be accepted to an MSW program. Good luck Lindsay!
When asked to share about her time at Booth UC this is what Lindsay had to say:
“Booth UC is far more than a place to learn. Booth provides you with opportunities to grow on a personal, spiritual, and academic level. I graduated from Booth over 5 years ago, and I continue to stay connected with classmates and educators, which speaks to the bonds that you can form at Booth. When I reflect on my time at Booth, I am thankful for the welcoming learning environment, the various perspectives that the professors brought forward, and the hands-on and relevant training that was offered. Booth UC truly prepared me to be an empathetic and person-centred social worker and I am grateful to be part of the Booth community.”
