A Fork in the Road

Winter 2014

We all encounter them – those moments in life when we have a choice to make. Take the high road or the low road? Pursue this career or that career? Go for glory or integrity? Money or meaning? Comfort or courage?
 
These forks in the road often alter the very direction of our lives, determining what we do and who we become. They are the moments for which Ottawa University seeks to prepare its students from the instant they step on campus. By helping them explore all the dimensions of who they are and where they fit in an increasingly complex world, students leave equipped to examine decisions from a broader life perspective and expanded worldview. 
 
The stories in this issue of the Ottawa Spirit bear this out. As you read them, we hope you will identify with the life choices that have been made by current students, alumni and faculty who are leading lives of significance and helping others do the same.
