Why Sharing My Student Voice Matters

Why Sharing My Student Voice Matters

A Letter to My First Year Self, Now That I’m Graduating

A letter to first-year me

In my Fifth and final year here at the U of A I’m beginning to feel I’ve overstayed my welcome on this lovely campus. The hundreds of students I pass daily seem to all have their focuses set in steel and walk with determination in their steps, they laugh with friends and stay long hours in the library, I see them stress over grades and friends while building their resumes. As for me, I’ve spent the majority of this past half-decade doing that the same.

The Best Brunch Spots for Hungry Students

The Best Brunch Spots Around Campus

I am the (self-proclaimed) queen of brunch. If there’s one word (or two) that would describe me perfectly, it’s “regular brunch go-er”. I just love a good brunch. So, if there is one person who has enough credentials to narrow down a list of the best brunch spots near (and far) from campus, that would definitely be me. And to help you make the best brunch decisions, I’ve taken into account things like the distance from campus, as well as what my personal favorite dish is on the menu, and the general pricing (scoring anywhere from $ to $$$). So, go make me proud and make brunch your new end of term thing!

A Snowy Campus Is A Better Campus - Deal With It

Winter is better than spring - deal with it

It’s tough being a contrarian sometimes, especially when it comes to something as all-encompassing as the weather.

I’ll spare you from the numerous awful jokes about the eight months of winter and all that, because I’ve heard them all before. They’re not funny. Trust me. They only intensify when I tell people that I actually like winter. Not when it’s -20 or anything like that, but I really enjoy winter sports, and just the whole general aesthetic of winter. Therefore, I’m about to put forth an extremely unpopular list: why campus is actually better in the wintertime. Please don’t hate me that much.

Dancing with a Dinosaur For The Kids

#ForTheKids Dance Marathon
Dance marathons are a concept that rose throughout the 20th century, especially in the United-States. Later on, charity dance marathons became popular during the 1970's at a handful of American universities. Today, the biggest type of charity dance marathon is the one supporting the Children’s Miracle Network: there are over 300 dance marathon programs across North America and over $150 million raised since 1991.
