Summer living in Albania

For as long as I can remember, my summers have always included a trip to nearby, beautiful cities of Albania. Long walks in the beach, volleyball playing with neighbours, big lunches, long hikes, and warm, sunny days are just a few of my favourite memories. Perhaps this explains why often in the midst of school assignments, […]

Smoky Skies and Summer Festivals

Summer time in Squamish is magical. Farmers markets bursting with fresh, local produce. Music events happening most weekends, like the Sunset Music Series at the Sea to Sky Gondola, the Whistler Outdoor Concert Series that has amazing concerts in the Olympic Plaza for free, and the Squamish Wind Festival, a celebration of art, music, win, and water […]

The Summer Adventures of Kestrel Kunz

The Squamish summer is already quite hot and sunny—not exactly the ideal weather for me to focus all day inside on a computer. But fortunately there are other Questies who are taking much more advantage of the Squamish beauty and heat, while keeping up with their academic duties. Kestrel Kunz is one of this year’s […]

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 […]

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, […]

The Sun Is Out And So Are We

Sitting inside a classroom on a hot sunny day can sometimes make you feel like you are missing out on something. So why not have class outside? Fiftieth of us were in our morning calculus class going over material from the previous homework set, when our tutor said, “let’s take class outside today”. What a wonderful idea! We […]

Quest Rugby Tournament at SFU

Last weekend, Quest participated in its second ever Rugby 7’s tournament hosted at Simon Fraser University in Barnaby. It was a cold, foggy Saturday as Quest’s fledgling team squared off against five other universities. This tournament is the second of three tournaments held this year as part of a new Rugby 7’s league, formed just […]

Every Wednesday Student Affairs organizes a free Snowshoe & Cross Country Ski Shuttle for students up to Whistler Olympic Park. Snowshoes are provided at no cost and X-country skis can be rented for just $5 on Wednesdays. Students who choose to X-country ski can take advantage of free lessons from either JF Plouffe, the Quest […]

Community Day 2015 – Into Our Wild

Quest prides itself on its close community, and it’s something that I often blog about. The constant events and sports games serve to bring together students from all years. Inevitably, as Quest grows, the strong sense of community lessens. But, even though the campus is growing, the school puts in effort to keep us close, […]
