One of my favorite classes has been ART 425: Writing for Artists, Curators, and Critics with Professor Mark Durant. It was a fantastic class because I was able to learn new writing techniques, and have deeper discussions on how to make my writing more impactful. Professor Durant had a wealth of knowledge to share which was extremely helpful in my literary growth.
One of my favorite spots on campus is the Parking Garage, because my friends and I enjoy driving up there to chill in the car and overlook the campus.
My advice to prospective students is to take an active role in finding your community on campus! There are many clubs and activities/opportunities here, but you have to be willing to reach out and attend/join them.
My favorite local shop is Taste Tea in Arbutus, because its the perfect spot to grab a simple "After-Classes treat", "Mid-Week Treat" or "Pick-Me-Up Treat"!
