Classics in the Aegean: Exporing the Aegean Coast returning home (Part 2)

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog about the first part of my trip in Turkey, found here. This blog included stories about my travels (exploring Toronto and spending all night at the airport in Istanbul), visiting different ancient sites along the Aegean coast, going on a boat tour, attending a pottery and carpet […]

Meeting Jim and Claire – my host parents, in Albania

Almost two years ago I wrote a blog named, “The Squamish Host Family Program,” where I talked about my host parents, Jim and Claire. Even though by then I had met them only once, I was amazed by their experiences, knowledge about the world, and passion for outdoor sports. Carlos is a friend of mine […]

Classics in the Aegean: Travelling to Turkey and Visiting Ancient Sites (Part 1)

A few months ago, I heard a few students students talk about a Quest trip to Turkey, where they would visit legendary sites of the Aegean and learn in the cradle of civilization. I am amazed and excited since I am very interested in such topics. For many years now, I have wanted to visit […]

End of the Year Reflections

I currently have one week left of third year. It is weird. It’s funny to think back to the beginning… When I arrived on campus three years ago the current graduates were all second years. I remember how magical they seemed. I remember how difficult my first essay in cornerstone was (in reflection, it was a […]

Block Break: Roomate Trip to Oregon

The end of the year is just around the corner and with this comes the arrival of summer (my favorite time of the year). The departure of campus is also very close, most of the students go back home or travel during the 4 months. In my case I’m thinking of staying around in Squamish […]

Quest, Particle Accelerators & Pharmacogenomics — what?!

This past week I travelled to Vancouver with my class, ‘Drugs, Vitamins & Antibiotics’ to learn more about some pretty cool science! The first half of the field trip was spent at TRIUMF, at the south end of the UBC campus. TRIUMF is a nuclear particle accelerator. This spins negatively charged hydrogen at 75% of […]

Biodiversity in the sunshine – or not

I’ve learned a lot so far this month, but the most memorable thing may be that biodiversity is best in the sun. Biodiversity of British Columbia, one of the foundation life science courses at Quest, is one of the most sought after classes to take – at least in April and September. This March though, […]

Spring at Quest – Events

Springtime is (in my opinion) the second most wonderful part of the year at Quest. It would be hard to argue that September isn’t the best month ever. You see all of your wonderful friends after months apart, it’s warm enough to swim in the lakes after morning class, and the sunsets dazzle nearly every […]

Quest Pool Night at Brennan Park

This past Friday all of Quest was invited to Brennan Park Recreation Centre for a POOL PARTY! The SRC (Students Representative Council) rented out the entire pool from 9pm – 11pm for all of Quest to attend. There was a hot tub, a climbing apparatus, a diving board, a sauna, volleyball playing, a kiddie pool […]
