Hey, I’m Jamal, and I’m a second year student at Douglas, taking a specialized degree in “whatever, whenever.” When I first came to Douglas,. I thought maybe I could be a psychologist, because of the two books and 280 TED talks I’d seen on the topic.

When I’m not writing, I’m either reading a book or being… Read More

Hey! My name’s Mary and I am in my second year of Arts here at Douglas. While studying humanities and social sciences, I enjoy dipping myself into numerous worlds of culture through learning new languages. As strange as it sounds, being a polyglot one day is definitely one of my interests. I try my best to assert myself to new things and I love meeting new people. I have a broad appreciation for music, so if you need something to do or just want to groove, I’ll be in the dance studio!… Read More

Hi, I’m Telka! I am a second year Marketing student. I’m a Student Ambassador and a dance instructor. I also dabble with playing the piano and ukulele. If you’re lucky maybe I’ll sing you a song! Besides that I like to spend my time cuddled up in a blanket watching Community, The X-Files, or Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with a cup of lavender-chamomile tea. You’ll probably see me hanging around campus in tights and a scarf in the library or on the 4th floor. If you come by and say hi I’ll show… Read More

  Douglas College hosted the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Volleyball Nationals last week! The games are over but our admiration for the Royals stays with us.

I learned a lot about how much is needed to host a large event of this kind. Even from the first day I could feel how the players were giving it all that they… Read More
