What could convince a prairie boy from Saskatchewan to move to the eastern most coast in Canada?
It wasn't the land, the sea, or even the wind swept rocks. Clayton Ford chose Memorial for purely academic reasons.
This is the place where he found a political science program unlike any other in Canada - a four month summer work term with a government agency, political party, or not-for-profit organization, combined with flexible and broad courses that allow for stream-lined specialization.
For Clayton, Memorial really is big on academic freedom, from his freedom to choose to his freedom to learn.
