I have been more motivated in this area of study by some recent research I undertook to discover the unique underlying philosophy that eventually led to the recent refugee migration, which is so prominently discussed in the Western World.
Axis Theatre has recently begun their Wee Ones Series — plays intended for an audience ages 3-7. Shelby Bushell says that there was no quality market for very young children and Axis wanted to step in and fill this gap.
I arrived to university a very sexually unaware 19-year-old. However, as a science student at heart, I found explanations in a scientific journal, Clinical Anatomy. Exploring romantic love, on the other hand, has produced fewer concrete answers.
It was that total fluke which landed Brotto in her current field of work, but she is now considered one of the pre-eminent experts on female arousal dysfunction, specifically focusing on the psychological factors that cause this dysfunction.
We caught up with some athletes pursuing a degree in kinesiology for this edition of the T-Birds 5-on-5. These are the people you see on Imagine Day decked out in bright green and likely are the fittest group of people you will ever meet.

Passionate, insightful and ambitious, Heather Gunn has carved a place for herself at UBC which is entirely her own. She strives towards a more inclusive environment for musicians on both a representative and a scholarly level.
Think about it. For the price of a cup of coffee or a slice of pizza, you can support eight human beings to come to the amazing country and university we live and study in. We need to ... commit to long-term support for refugees.
“I don’t think my platform is particularly radical — I’m not asking for free tuition, I’m not asking for free rent, I’m not asking for the communist revolution. All I’m asking for is some transparency and accountability.”
I would love to work with the ad-hoc mental health committee because I am a huge mental health advocate and used Access & Diversity before. I’ve seen the state of mental health on campus and it’s improving, thanks to the work of our current senators.
“I am really interested maximizing student spaces. Not in the way I’ve heard thrown around with 24 hour study spaces. I want to improve student engagement be informed making it easier for them to look up information on running next year.”
