Extreme Spring Cleaning: Dorm Edition

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Jade Szymanski | Contributor Spring is fast approaching; as the days get longer and the temperature gets warmer, university students everywhere are filled with anticipation of the four-month long break from school that they will get to work, sleep, and soak up the sun instead of study, drink nothing but coffee, and freeze their butts off while getting to class. With spring comes the notion that we are renewed and brighter days are ahead of us. This is why spring cleaning is so popular- an organized and clean living environment helps translate to how we function in day-to-day life, which should feel exciting and fresh when spring finally rolls around. It is the beginning of a promising summer, and your dorm should reflect that positivity. After all, a cluttered space leaves a cluttered mind, and we all need to be on our A game with finals season looming near. While those of us living in small dorms are not graced with the luxury of being able to rearrange furniture and redecorate, even the simplest additions or spruce ups can make a change of difference. Adding new posters to the wall or changing the orientation of your bed can add a new vibe to your room and the creative element can make cleaning seem more exciting...

So Long For Now: Remembering Stuart McLean

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief I pride myself on not being taken in by Canadiana. I get very tired of trite songs, CBC TV shows, trinkets, and books that distill the Canadian experience into a concentrated blend of hockey, maple leaves, and beavers; like we lack any sort of further complexity other than the stereotypes we complain that other countries foist upon us. As an example, the works of Stompin’ Tom Connors are anathema to me. Yes, The Hockey...

Emmanuel Drame | Contributor I am an inherent word for creatures I thought knew and valued me…. I have lost my place; my name resonates only with chaos and conflict…. I lost my place because humans placed irrelevant issues above me.… I unite differences across every spectrum of life; they are products of mine…Race, Religion, Philosophy, Ideology, Culture, Ethnicity, Nationality, Geography and so on….   When people speak of me today, I bow in shame because I have become a...

UNBC Musical Productions: Meet The Executive

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member As the performance dates for our main musical of the year loom closer, the Musical Productions Club on campus is working to make this show all that it possibly can be. This is my fifth year with the club and every year, as we get into the final rehearsals before the show, tensions always become higher and the pressure is certainly felt by the club’s members as homework accumulates, the last few props need...

Grant’s Rant: Everyone’s Yelling And No One Is Thinking

Posted by on Mar 15, 2017 in Student Life | 0 comments

Grant Bachand | Contributor M-103 has been the bane of my life. The recent rally at city hall was a perfect example of how the conversation has become completely unhinged and toxic. On one side, there’s grumpy old white people who want to retain their freedom of speech, AKA “I want to be able to insult Islam, and nobody else can say anything.” On the other side is the proponents for the motion, who willfully look past some of the...
