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, […]

Women of Aviation World Wide Week

I love flying, as a matter of fact I have always loved it. When my brother and I were young we had numerous airplane toys, pilot dolls, and even build-you-own runway blocks. We would endlessly talk about airplanes and even dream of becoming pilots one day. We would always ask our parents to go on a […]

Off-Campus fun: Valentine’s day with Ben Howard

No plush toys, cheesy letters or chocolate (maybe just a little chocolate) this past Valentine’s day. Instead I got to enjoy an intimate heart filling live concert from Ben Howard. Even though I am a long way from home (El Salvador) I count on the good fortune of having two of my best friends around an […]

In just two days I will be flying into Bhutan to start an exchange with one of Quest’s partner universities, the Royal Thimphu College. Until then I am staying in a hostel in Lisbon, Portugal and am having my first european experience. I have been here for seven nights already and a few days ago I finally figured out […]

This year there were several events organized at Quest to celebrate Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year was on Thursday February 19, but being busy with the end of block course work, a number of students organized events on the weekend to celebrate the lunar New Year. On Saturday a number of the international Chinese […]

The Sun Is Out And So Are We

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 […]
