According to Donald Beauchamp, vice-president of communications with the Montreal Canadiens: "Studying at the University of Ottawa led to some outstanding opportunities for me. It’s a bilingual university located at the heart of Canada, in the nation’s capital. I did my studies in French, but I had exposure to the program in both languages and to all the variety the City of Ottawa has to offer. This really gave me an advantage for landing a great first job. What stands out most for me is the prestige that the University of Ottawa, the Department of Communication and the City of Ottawa enjoy. And exposure to another language and another culture will serve you well for the rest of your life."
