An International Student Going Back Home for the First Time
 – Part I

Everything begins with that 3 AM alarm clock. It is August 2nd, and finally the day for me to travel to Kosovo has come. It was still dark outside, but to me it felt like one of the most beautiful days of this summer. In only one day I was going to hug my parents, […]

Squamish Summertime

Living the Squamish Life

  Why hello there! I’m one of the new Admissions Counsellors at Quest, so I figured I should introduce myself! My name is Tara, and I will be the Admissions Counsellor for British Columbia.

Renew Your Quest

Introducing the Sea to Sky Gondola!

Over the six years I have been in Squamish, I have watched this town dramatically change. Instead of just being a gas stop on the way to Whistler, Squamish has been intentionally rebranding itself as its own tourist destination – and rightly so! As the ‘adventure capital of Canada,’ Squamish has a plethora of outdoor […]

LNG Woodfibre

One of the hottest topics in Squamish at the moment is the Woodfibre LNG  proposal. Woodfibre LNG is a privately owned company (part of the Singapore-based business group RGE – Royal Golden Eagle – Ltd.) hoping to convert the old pulp mill just south of Squamish into a liquified natural gas (LNG) processing plant. Liquified natural gas […]

Test of Metal

The arrival of June in Squamish is usually signified by more sun, warmer lakes, and of course the Test of Metal. The Test of Metal is an annual race in Squamish that tests the grit of all participants. The 67 kilometer course is chalk full of intense terrain and over 1,200 meters of climbing. With […]

Fun Break

May is a busy month for me. In addition to working every day in Admissions I’ve been working at a local restaurant (Sushi Sen) and doing an Experiential Learning block (see previous blog post). Even though I’ve got a solid work load, there is always time to have fun with friends. During the school year […]
