Côte-Nord: Nature, Beyond Measure Campus 

Côte-Nord: Nature, Beyond Measure

Living in the city, most of us don’t get to explore the beauty of real nature. We are surrounded by large buildings, concrete roads and the synthetic human-constructed world. Have you ever wanted to see real nature, green landscape, beautiful wildlife, and breathless natural sceneries?  Vanier students now have a unique opportunity to discover one of the most up north communities in Québec: the region of Côte-Nord. Next semester, students can take part in a trip to the region as a part of one of their complementary courses. It’s an…

The tables in the cafeteria were put aside for the space used by the club tables. There was a lot of student chatter on the 19th of September because it was Clubs Day!

The Vanier Collective Gardens Campus 

The Vanier Collective Gardens

It is sometimes astonishing how many things we walk past without noticing. I find that this often happens with the Vanier Collective Gardens and the various planters around campus; we are so used to walking past them, and so focused on the class we are walking to, or from, that we don’t even see the wonders that are growing there. Have you ever stopped to look at the peppers, cucumbers, cabbages, tomatoes or zucchinis (those are often gigantic) that are growing in front of the Sports Complex? Or the beans,…

Five Finals Tips Campus 

Five Finals Tips

Failing a test doesn’t make you a failure. Don’t let a failing mark define who you are. Some goals are just harder to achieve than others, but that doesn’t make you any less capable of accomplishing them. Brush yourself off and try again. You may have lost this round, but at least you’ve gained experience. SLEEP, PLEASE. Getting a proper amount of sleep improves memory retention. Those all-nighters may not be as rewarding as you may think. They can do more harm than good, especially to your overall sleeping patterns….

New Universal Complementary Course on Indigenous Studies Campus 

New Universal Complementary Course on Indigenous Studies

NEVER BEEN IDLE: Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The injustices that have faced indigenous people in Canada since the arrival of the first European colonizers will definitely remain the largest taint in our country’s history. Despite all attempts from the colonizers to assimilate them, the indigenous people of Canada have continuously resisted throughout the centuries and have survived to tell their tale. In a time of reconciliation and justice, indigenous people are telling their stories of resistance and battle to preserve their culture, identity, and communities. Now Vanier College students will…
