3-D Printing: A Calculus Manifestion

Calculus 2 was the last class I expected to have a field trip for. I wasn’t surprised with our daily field studies in Squamish’s surroundings during Biodiversity of British Columbia, but calc 2 seemed like something that would only take place in front of a white board with calculators in hand. As it turns out, […]

The Wild West: Tectonics

I feel refreshed. So refreshed. Plain and simple, being a Geology student at Quest is the reason for this. There is very few of us but that makes the courses and experiences we have that much more special. Having the opportunity to study Petrology and Mineralogy in the Meagher Valley just north of Pemberton, BC […]

Statistics Everywhere!

Statistics has an interesting way of influencing almost everything you do in university life, or at least that seems to be the case for me. It all started with my class Research Methods in Social Science back in November. In the course of doing research we had to use statistics to analyze our results. The […]

By the end of January, I was sitting in a conference room in Abu Dhabi with about 50 other conference delegates from around the world. We were split into “Global Villages” each containing about 6 students and two […]

I wrote a blog post about it a while ago, while I was in the middle of interviewing the researches and actually writing the article. A couple weeks ago, I was brought into Karen’s […]

Practice Experiential Learning -Question Block

I am currently in my Question block. It is hard. I have to evaluate my life choices and what I want to do in the future. Somehow my Question has remained the same from the first day of the block (“What conditions optimize a sense of belonging?”) We have done lots of activities in class to […]

WHAT IS THE “MENTOR PROGRAM”?

Second year student and mentor, Eva Schipper, designed the current 2014 mentor profiles. I made a short 1-minute video of her answers to various questions that you may have. Have more questions? You will hear from your mentor in early February! The Mentor Program is for admitted students with questions about life at Quest. Who […]
