Sandra has been key in helping me achieve my goals and get to where I am today. She provided me with personal and academic support throughout my time at University of Calgary and continues to guide me in my academics while I play professional football for the Edmonton Eskimos. Sandra’s guidance and willingness to help has allowed me to reach my goal of playing in the CFL, while continuing to pursue my degree in Communications. She has given me the opportunity to learn how to be successful in the classroom with her continued support.

During my time on the University of Calgary I saw a dramatic change in regards to academics when Sandra was introduced to the program. With Sandra a study hall was established, tutors were brought in and the overall accountability towards academics improved. Sandra helped make sure everyone was registered for classes on time and would make suggestions to place us in classes that we could succeed in. I am truly grateful for her efforts as our academic advisor.
Canadian football offensive lineman for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Sandra Wigg was extremely beneficial to my collegiate career. Not only did I grow as an athlete but also as a person, through Sandra’s leadership and academic help I was able to achieve a degree. Sandra taught me how to better handle difficult situations and how to effectively communicate with professors on campus. She challenged the student-athletes at the University of Calgary to become greater than they imagined, not just in their sport. Lessons I learned from Sandra made me a better student and also a better leader on the field. Sandra’s help was tremendous in the transition coming to a new province out of high school. Sandra’s passion and spirit is unparalleled and she truly listens to every single student she works with so she can help them with their situation at hand. I cannot describe how thankful I am for my experience with the Sandra Wigg and the University of Calgary. .
