Working for the Green Party has been an extraordinarily rewarding experience for me as a student, and as a young professional. Let me tell you why! We learn in many different ways in our undergraduate studies. We learn in lectures, through course readings, projects, and presentations. For me, the best method of learning is through doing. The Arts Internship has provided me with an opportunity to practice skills and knowledge I have learned in my studies and apply them to important projects....

Now that the excitement of Orientation and start of term have passed and you have gotten that first long weekend break out of the way, it might be a good opportunity to reflect on the term so far. Hopefully by now all our new and returning students are getting settled into the rhythm of university studies. For some of you this will be your first set of midterms and papers coming due. That first term can be stressful and students may find they need some additional resources and help to develop...

Four weeks to go until... ...the first day of classes! Hard to believe it's only a month away. As we head towards Orientation Week, time travel back to 1998 with us. It was a strange time where you were required to stand in line to register for courses and penny candies were still a thing (pennies were still a thing!!!).

What do you think will stand out this year and stick with you years later? I decided to ask a few local Arts alumni to take a trip down memory lane to see what has...
