Tammy Donovan knew that Dalhousie was a special place when she organized a faculty auction for charity in her first year and got to see an unexpected side of her law professors.

ÒHere were these accomplished professors willing to do these silly, fun things for charity, like show off their juggling skills,” she says. ÒItÕs not every day you see someone whoÕs won the Order of Canada singing karaoke!”

Tammy was a legal assistant in Vancouver when she first heard about Dalhousie from someone who described it as Òa really friendly place.” Now graduating with her Law degree, Tammy has experienced DalhousieÕs strong sense of community first-hand, particularly within the Law faculty.

ÒStudents here are collaborative, not competitive. We really pushed each other to do well; there was none of the competitiveness that IÕve heard about from other schools. I really liked how supportive the environment was, both with students and faculty.”

Tammy plans on pursuing a career in corporate law. In the meantime, she takes away memories of growth, opportunities, and a bit of the unexpected she discovered along the way.
