Middle-school student Dana Strauss, of Cornwall, Ontario, said she wants to rehabilitate horses when she’s older.
While taking a course called Animals: Friends, Family and Food, taught by Craig McFarlane, she said she jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the Enrichment Mini-Course Program (EMCP) not only because of the course offerings, but because her older brother had went to Carleton for a mini-course last year.
The persistence of Carleton president Roseann Runte in lobbying the provincial and federal governments for funding has earned the university $52.5 million, meaning students will have access to two new buildings by 2011.
The funding, announced May 25, will go towards Carleton’s Waterfront Project, according to Carleton spokesperson, Steve Blais.
