SEMESTER RECAP – A ROLLERCOASTER OF FUN, HIGH ENERGY (AND OCCASIONAL STRESS!)

November 18, 2016

This semester has just been flying by over these past couple months. We have had a couple of wonderful and enjoyable holidays, some less than delightful midterms, and a handful of assignments. As we head back into university from the Remembrance Day weekend, I think it would be a good time to take a look back, as well as to look forward to the rest of the semester. So far, this semester has been a rollercoaster of fun, high energy, and occasionally stressful times. As

FIRST YEAR OR RETURNING STUDENT – THE ALC IS FOR YOU!

September 29, 2016

Hey all, Before I go anywhere with my thoughts, I just want to state that writing on this student blog is a surreal experience for me. A couple of years ago, I was a young high school student curiously scrolling through Booth’s website when I came across Sarah Taylor’s blog posts. I remember reading through them in order to try and get a better understanding of what Booth was like, even though I had no intentions of attending Booth. Well, fast forward a couple years

The Booth Experience

September 27, 2016

Hello Everyone!! Welcome back to another wonderful year at Booth, or if you’re a new student, welcome here! My name is Josh, and I am a third year business student here at Booth, as well as a student ambassador. I have had the opportunity to catch up with a lot of familiar faces from last year. I have also gotten to meet many new people who are just getting their first taste of the life that I like to call the Booth Experience. Part of

WEEKEND FUN AT BOOTH UC!

March 4, 2016

Hello All, This last weekend was a blur of activity here at Booth University College. Not only did we have the Earl Robinson Memorial Lecture series with Dr. Joel B. Green from Sunday to Monday, we also had an Oscar Party here at the school. Every year since Zach, one of the students at Booth UC, has been here, he has put on an Oscar Party and invited the student body to attend. This year was a blast. We had students dressed to the nines

DISCOUNTED EVENT TICKETS FOR STUDENTS A WELCOME PERK!

February 24, 2016

Hi Everybody, As I mentioned in a blog post last semester, Booth UC often has discounted tickets to events around the city. Last weekend it was Disney on Ice at the MTS Centre. This took place over Reading Week so it was a great opportunity to take a break from studying and enjoy a spectacular show. My wife and I went with some friends of ours and even though I am by no means a Disney connoisseur, I must say that I had a great

Booth UC Heritage Week: Remember, Celebrate, Share

February 9, 2016

There have been many events that have happened last week for Booth UC’s annual Heritage Week. For those who do not know, Heritage Week celebrates the legacy of Booth UC and explains where it has come from: “Booth University College is owned and operated by The Salvation Army. This means that the ethos of the University College is shaped by the Army’s commitment to the historic Christian faith and its deep involvement in ministry in the world; that the University College is rooted in the

WINTER FUN IN WINNIPEG!

February 2, 2016

Hi Everybody, I’m sure that most of you have heard the pointed comments and icy innuendos directed at the city of “Winterpeg”. Contrary to popular belief though, Winnipeg is in fact a great place to be in the winter season. There are plenty of fun-filled seasonal activities within walking distance of Booth University College’s downtown location that you don’t want to miss out on.  For example: Watch the Santa Claus Parade – always a joy to witness, this year’s parade included 100 floats and an

Welcome to the Winter Semester!

January 18, 2016

Hello All, Over the Christmas holidays I ended up spending a lot of my time relaxing at home with my family. I am currently reading through Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time saga and I managed to read through books 6-8 over the holidays. I had a bunch of Christmas gatherings to attend (five to be exact), so while I did get to spend a lot of time relaxing, I also got to spend a large portion of my Christmas holidays with friends and family. A

‘TIS THE SEASON. EXAM SEASON! 5 TIPS FOR SUCCESS

December 9, 2015

Hello All, Tis the season to be jolly, and we here at Booth University College are getting into the Christmas spirit. We just had our Christmas banquet on December 4th, and it was a blast. The food was amazing, and the dance floor was filled with students having a good time, myself included. The Christmas season is truly in full swing here at Booth UC. However, it is also one of the students least favourite times of the year, exam season. As a second year
