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 […]

Dancing Bears and Quest Traditions

April is a pretty spectacular block to be at Quest. Yes, most of the students are starting to get a bit burnt out from their schoolwork. But, April feels full of life on campus. The trees start to get their leaves, there are birds all over, and the sunny days finally start to outweigh the […]

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 […]

I had originally registered to take my last Humanities Foundation course (words of advice -it’s super nice to have most, if not all, of those finished off before your third, but especially fourth year). However, I found out that I would need to be […]

This year, however, has been quite different. I’m currently in […]

Every year Quest tutor Fei Shi offers a theatre course on acting and directing. This past week Fei’s class staged two performances of the play they worked on tirelessly throughout the block, Peach Blossom Land. The play itself is quite unique, as it follows two plays within another story. Two theatre groups double book the […]

Art, Technology, and the Body -Art Classes at Quest

This past block was my first art class at Quest (and for years otherwise). Based on the course description, I originally imagined that it was going to be a typical academic block with more creative projects, I was nervous to discover that our daily homework would include sketching and the creative projects were going to be the […]
