Studying Public Health in the UK

Posted by Hayley Fortini on Nov 10, 2017 12:00:00 PM

For a few years now I have known that I wanted to study the topic of ‘health’, but was unsure of what that meant exactly. It wasn’t until I sat down with a friend of a friend who studied health at the postgraduate level and had some insight and advice that I was able really narrow down my focus. After looking into the many different programs in Canada and hearing that my friend was looking into international programs I decided to follow in her footsteps and also see what was being offered across the pond. Finding the right program for me took some time, but I’m glad I was able to do some investigating and find the right program for me.

Halloween in the UK

Posted by Josephine Gaupholm on Nov 6, 2017 4:48:02 PM

What is not to love about October? It is the perfect time to cozy up in your favorite sweater and sip on a cup of, well, pumpkin flavored anything while cracking open a new novel. October is a time for walks in the changing leaves, brisk morning runs, and of course Halloween. A classic holiday in North America, I was prepared for jack-o-lanterns adorning every doorstep, cheesy gravestones on lawns, and human-sized bags of candy being sold in shops. Alas, this is not the reality over here in fair old England. Halloween, although gaining steam, is just not as big or built-up as it is back home. Pumpkins do fill giant tubs in the entrances of grocery stores, and you may find a shop window or two covered in fake spider webs, but the overall extravagance of Halloween is sadly lost. Despite the lack of decoration, there is still plenty to do on the scariest night of the year!
