Classes are over, the sun is shining, and the light summer breeze smells of opportunity… at least until those spring and summer classes start!
With the snow finally gone (though in Alberta we never know), The Gateway asked students enjoying the sun in quad about their summer plans.

“I’m convocating this June! I’m also going to a leadership conference in Vancouver for the Union of Vietnamese Students’ Associations, and I will be dancing at the conference as well. After that, I’m going to Vietnam to visit my family back home.”
Matthew Gaerlin – Nursing III
“I’m just taking computer science and psychology spring classes. Once summer semester starts I’ll be relaxing in New Jersey visiting my family.”
Angelica Huynh – ALES II
“I’m taking some spring and summer courses and then I have an internship lined up in a month. It’s with the Alberta Lake Management society and we’re testing lake water for invasive species DNA on campus.”
Daniella Hernandez – Sciences IV
“I just had an interview this morning, so now I’m gonna be researching at the U of A for a geo project!”

“I’m currently working on an NSERC USRA, which is an undergraduate student award. I work for Dr. Britta Jensen and I’m doing a project looking at ash from 1980 Mount St. Helen in lake cores and peat bogs. The ash is represented as something called cryptotephra which means it’s microscopic and really hidden. It’s hard to do, so it’s miserable but also awesome.”
