We won!! Open house went off without a hitch, and the SRMT program walked away with the most coveted prize of the affair, a second place ribbon for team spirit. I’m more proud of this award than I ought to be, but I am also strangely reminded of the ‘participant’ ribbons I would invariably earn at elementary school track meets. It’s nice to receive a bit of recognition, as the first and second year classes really did put a lot of energy into the event. The most enjoyable part of the weekend was getting out and seeing some of the other displays around campus.
Had I been aware that the Environmental Health program gets to make freeze dried ice cream, I may have ended up on a very different academic path. This stuff was delicious, and probably my highlight for the weekend. Anything which allows me to consume sugar while pretending I’m an astronaut is a winner in my books.
I lost about 15 minutes of my day when I was inadvertently hypnotized by this wacky wave machine. Yes, it was interesting, just not interesting enough for me to go to the room and find out what the heck it was.
So now that the glamour of open house is behind us the SRMT crew is back to the regular grind, both in the classroom and the woods. This photo was taken last Friday on our geohazards field trip in North Van. It’s certainly becoming harder to focus on school as the weather gets nice and the program comes to a close. I am pleased to report that this final semester seems to have some the most interesting courses yet. There has been one recent development on campus, however, which has displeased me greatly.
The awesome xlerator hand-dryer in the new SW1 restroom has been replaced with this flashy piece of junk. Where I could previously have the water blasted of my hands in a mere two seconds I’m now left thrusting my arms back and forth like a stooge into the dyson airblade. Not impressed, BCIT. Not impressed.
