There was a pumpkin carving contest today at our Terrace campus. Veronica Chinchilla, CMTN Student Housing Coordinator sliced and diced her first pumpkin, and she did a good job. Other students displayed their more advanced carving skills. Everyone brought their A-game and had a fun time. Our Social Media Marketing Officer tried to balance his pumpkin on top of his head. You’ll see his attempt in image four. Well, that brings us to the end of the week. Have a wickedly awesome weekend

We are proud of our Retail Service Program (RSP) students and their dedication towards collecting clothing items from various drop-off bins around our Terrace campus. They will run the Winter Clothing Drive, in partnership with Student Services until Nov 13. Drop off gently used clothes in the registration office, library, or the Student Union’s office. There will be a day when students in need can come collect items for free.
A group of international Mexican students who are studying at our Terrace campus recently enjoyed an afternoon of kayaking at Kloiya Bay, outside Prince Rupert. They learned how to paddle and maneuver an ocean kayak in a nice bay, sheltered from the wind that makes for great exploration of the shoreline and marine life. Thank you @skeenakayaking for your awesome services.

The doggy cafe in the Yurt Building at the Terrace campus was a ton of fun. The question that needs to be answered is who enjoyed it more: the dogs or the students? @brittanydemedeiros and Kezia from Student Services did an excellent job. Hopefully they didn’t have to clean up too much dog hair.
Posted @withrepost • @vickidenis Every day is an epic day to take a road trip to Prince Rupert. Experience the beautiful colours between the towns of our Terrace and Prince Rupert campuses.
Our Applied Coastal Ecology (ACE) students embark on a transformative, experiential-based learning experience that leads to rewarding careers. Clad in gumboots and rain gear, students got outside, despite the suddenly changing weather patterns and persistent rain. Students stayed at the Oona River Hatchery during the field trip, where they learned about area vegetation and salmon life cycle, among other topics. Go to our profile and read the full article to learn more about our ACE program in Prince Rupert.
Posted @withrepost • @studynorthbc #MyNorthernBC! Mia Soliman had some amazing highlights from her first year in Canada! ❤️ Read her awesome story below. “Last May, our group went for two-week tour of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains for our Invertebrates and their Ecosystems field school. Honestly, I was never for the outdoors but I had the time of my life camping and hiking with a bunch of people who share the same passion for science and research.” “This field school rekindled my curiosity and excitement for learning. I’ve learned a lot. From the lectures to the science journals we read on the road but I think what I enjoyed the most is when we’re hiking and we spot something unusual and an impromptu discussion begins. Definitely experiential learning at its finest.” “We did a lot! My favourites were hiking in snow (Ancient Forest, PG), exploring a burnt forest, digging up mud flats for worms, and singing Livin’ on a Prayer karaoke haha” “When I look back, sometimes I can vividly remember the sound of the lake at night, the smell and the warmth of the campfire while we’re singing and playing the guitar, and the feeling of belongingness when we huddle around the fire sharing warm drinks and stories.” “Yep, I made the right choice coming here. #CMTN Thank you for sharing your story Mia!
