FOR THE LOVE OF GREAT FOOD!

November 25, 2015

Hello All, One of the great things to enjoy here at Booth University College is the delicious food from the Bistro. As a resident student, I have had the opportunity to experience a lot of the food that Booth has to offer. Every day, the bistro has a special on for lunch that is only available for one day. One of my favourites was just the other day when they had grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches for lunch, it was fantastic. The menu also

THERE WILL BE PEACE….

November 9, 2015

Hi Everybody, On November 11th Booth University College will be closed for Remembrance Day. Having relatives who served in both World War I and II, this is a significant date for me – to which I am sure many of you can relate. I would just like to take this opportunity to share a poem with you all as you take the time to remember those who fought and died on all sides of the conflict, and to reflect on what has been learned: “There

Take a break from your studies to explore Winnipeg’s vibrant arts and cultural scene

October 26, 2015

Hi Everybody, At different times throughout the academic year Booth University College offers a variety of event tickets at discount prices to staff and students. The most recent of these was a Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (WSO) concert on Saturday October 17th. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend this concert, entitled “Quartetto Gelato”. With such an eccentric name, it is no wonder that the show was full of fun and laughter – not to mention the incredible musical performance put on by

Living on Campus is a great experience!

October 21, 2015

Hello All, With the new school year well underway, I wanted to take a little bit of time to talk about our residence here at Booth University College and some community activities that we do together! This has been my third year living on residence and there have been some great activities that we have done together over these past few years. For instance, just a couple of weekends ago the whole residence sat down and enjoyed a home cooked meal done by the Booth

Booth UC – What an experience!

May 6, 2015

So this last Top 10 list is going to be a little bit different. By that, I mean it’s not actually going to be a Top 10 list per se, but it will be a list of sorts. Since I am now officially into my last week of classes (crazy!), I have been thinking a lot about these last four years. So what I would like to do today is share with you some of my favourite moments from my time here. Some are school

Do as I say, not as I do!

April 6, 2015

Hey, everybody! We are back! I am officially in the home stretch – seven weeks of classes left! I can’t believe that. It feels like I just started about a year ago. Like last year, I was coming in to Booth UC for the first time with about 100 weeks of classes ahead of me (that is a rough estimate – it would take a while to calculate that for sure!). And now, I can almost count on one hand the number of weeks I

Explore Booth UC at an upcoming Campus Visit Day Event

March 6, 2015

So, I know I’ve told you all about our upcoming Campus Visit Days in a previous blog post so it’s possible you’ve heard this from me before, but I wanted to write this week about the Campus Visit Days we have left this year so you can be reminded and thinking about all the opportunities out there for checking out Booth UC! First up, on February 27 we have our Social Work Discovery Day. This runs from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and lunch –

Make the most of Reading Week!

February 6, 2015

Hey everyone! So, there’s an exciting time coming up for university students next week. It’s Reading Week! So far this semester has been going pretty well for me and I haven’t been feeling too overwhelmed, but I am still very excited to take a little break. Of course, as I pointed out a couple years ago in my blog, Reading Week is not meant to be a vacation; it is a time to get caught up on work and study for midterms. But I definitely

My Top Ten Classes at Booth UC

January 6, 2015

It’s time for the next Top 10 list. This week’s topic: Top 10 Classes I’ve Taken! These are not going to be in order as I cannot actually pick my number one favourite class; I’ve enjoyed so many of them. So these 10 classes will all be pretty much equal. 10. Representative Literary Works. This class is mandatory for all Booth UC students to take but I would have taken it regardless. It was so interesting and so much fun! You study major pieces of
