"The treatment of co-op students at IOR is exceptional. They cover many of your expenses, such as flights and food during travel. They offer you many experiences, such as site tours, courses, and networking opportunities. IOR is very particular when it comes to safety, and to some it may seem extreme but it is a culture. Safety first, environment second. Living in Cold Lake is not for everyone. It's a small town of 13 thousand people, mostly men who work in the oil field or the are in the military. Not many shopping places and the town is very spread out so getting around can be tricky. Lived here for the summer so far and I love it. The beach and marina are great to have down the street!"
