Squamish

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 […]

Experiential Learning in Medica Kosova (NGO)

In January, more than 6 months ago, I took the Question Block. Quest University Canada offers only one degree, that of the Bachelor of Liberal Art and Sciences.

Whether a romanticized drama like The Social Network or a slapstick comedy with no boundaries like Animal House, movies are an incredible way to help shape the ideas around the post-secondary education experience, both inside […]

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 […]

Independent Studies (are the greatest)

My last class of my third year is also my first independent study. 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 […]

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Usually around this time of year, a bit of a peek-a-boo from the sun is a rare and much welcomed sighting. Except this spring, we’ve probably had more days of sunshine than we have had of clouds and rain! The flowers are already out and blooming in all their rose-tinted glory, students are finding it […]

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