“Grace College was my first choice for a residential college and I have no doubt that I made the best choice for me. The Grace College community was so warm and so welcoming which made me feel at home. This was very important as I came from abroad. I had such a great experience at Grace College and now have friends for a lifetime. I grew as a person by working on things I’m already strong at and also had the opportunity to challenge myself. Grace College was so welcoming and supportive through my journey”.

Yukiko (Apollo) – Grace resident 2017

“There is no doubt that Grace has become my second home. From unexpected card games in the hallways, trying out for numerous sporting and cultural events (even if it’s just for fun), and friends popping in at anytime for a chat, the community at Grace could not be more supportive. Don’t get me wrong there are times you miss the comforts of home, but at Grace you’re given a second family. A family of strong, supportive, and powerful young women. A family I’m lucky to be a part of!
