A few week ago, we published a list of nerdy books that would make you an annoying know-it-all at parties. We forgot that it's 2017 and no one reads anymore so we put together a list of our favourite nerdy YouTube channels.
The Board also voted to increase investment in the fund by $5 million per year for a period of three years, bringing the total investment fund to $25 million. The original investment was a $10 million contribution from the Trek endowment.

At the start of her show, the 23 year old singer-songwriter let us know that her band had driven to “the wrong border.” She was up there solo, with just her voice and a bass guitar to play her Indie-rock.
Manual Cinema's Ava/Ada was an unforgettable experience that will stick in my mind as one of the more impressive pieces of theatre/film/puppetry that I have ever seen. If you should ever have the opportunity to see them perform, take it.
“It’s an honour to be inducted into the hall of fame that has so many members who have made incredible contributions as a builder, coach, or player — it’s a great honour to be included in that company,” said Huband.
Not only are most of these athletes single and ready to mingle, but we were also able to dig up some dirt on the best campus spots (and workouts!) to share with your dates in 2017. We were lucky enough to have some athletes exclusively spill which T-

Almost every day is punctuated with a “want to get coffee?” when we get bored and need that sweet, frothy fix. Usually we go to Uppercase, but on those occasions when we really want to treat ourselves, we go to Loafe.

"Every few weeks, your elected student government meets on a Wednesday night to talk about issues concerning the AMS. Agenda items can seem long, mysterious and confusing without the proper background."
