Researching schools can be overwhelming, so we put together a list of the 5 most important things you should know about Tyndale University College to see if it’s the right fit for you.

1. It’s One of Canada’s Friendliest Places to Study

We surveyed over 40,000 Canadian postsecondary students and alumni about their schools, and Tyndale University College landed a #2 ranking for its Friendliest Students.

As one current student describes it, “there is always a fun, energetic, and friendly vibe at Tyndale. Everyone has a place and we all make sure everyone feels included.”

This might be the case because Tyndale’s classes are small on average (22 students), and everyone gets to know each other. It could also be because the school is an incredible mecca for diversity. At this school, you’ll find people from over 60 ethnic backgrounds and 40 religious denominations.

2. Getting Leadership Opportunities is Easy

As one student says, Tyndale is “highly involved with the surrounding community, so great networking opportunities also exist.”

The school is partnered with some pretty incredible organizations, to make giving back to your community an amazing experience.

Locally, there are ties with Habitat for Humanity, Yonge Street Mission, Youth Unlimited, and a few more organizations. And if that’s too close to home for you, Tyndale also helps students organize missions to India, Japan, Alaska, and the Dominican Republic.

3. It’s Incredibly Good Value

Students have rated Tyndale the #4 Best Value-for-dollar school in the country. Quality of education aside, Tyndale also offers students incredibly generous financial aid.
