Beware! The trees are getting undressed in public!

Winter is on the horizon, and the weather of autumn is working its magic and washing the chlorophyll that masked the beauty of the trees for a long time, revealing the splendid true colors of my surroundings. So, the summer is taking its mask down revealing what was hidden, leaving all of us standing in[…]

“Hey Matthew, how was your day?” “My name is Matt.”

My roommate’s name is Matt. Strictly Matt—nothing more, nothing less. He prefers that I call him ‘Matt’ and not ‘Matthew’ because he is under the impression that the latter sounds too pretentious and formal for college.

A Serious Moment

Recently, all U of R students were sent an email about the totally out-of-place incident that happened on campus earlier this year, resulting in the death of Jeffrey Bordeaux Jr. I got the impression from many incoming students that they were unaware about the details of this event, or unaware of the event at all.[…]

How Disability-Friendly is the U of R?

As a current graduate student taking a course called Disability in Schools at the[…]
