Yeah, I mean this barn hosted me pretty darn well for the past 9 years. I mean heck BSS is down the road, McDonald's is just up the old Ave and the McVillage is we'll I mean there's a Starbucks... you... get where I'm going. If you were a teacher hunter and were looking at the college for some steals, I'd say the your 3 prime suspects are Sharpe, Mirk and Griem. Ciao See More

Our son became an international boarder from the states beginning in 2014. The academic education and co- curricular opportunities he received at UCC was second to none. The support that both h...e & we as his parents received from faculty, staff, athletic coaches, other parents, & Old Boys was outstanding.
Best opportunity ever.

Huge congrats are in order for Vlad Chindea '18, selected as a Loran Scholar. It's considered the most prestigious undergraduate scholarship in Canada, valued at $100,000 over four years. Chindea was one of just 34 winners, selected from an initial pool of more than 5,000 applicants. The scholarship is unique in that it values character highly, in addition to academic performance. Originally from Romania, he grew up in Montreal. Vlad co-founded UCC's Amnesty International Club, through which he helped organize an indigenous rights awareness week. He's an avid filmmaker, member of the cross-country and swimming teams, and spent a summer working at an international development organization. Past UCC Loran Scholars include Kaleem Hawa '12, Aly Kassim-Lakha '11 and Allen Champagne '11.

Students have been working on the senior/classical (co-curricular and co-ed) production of William Shakespeare's King Lear since September. It's directed by Heather Crawford, with a set by Terry Denstedt and stage combat choreographed by Simon Fon.

The show runs from Wednesday, Feb. 21 through Saturday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the David Chu Theatre. The play concerns a fraying kingdom and two fractured families, with a king's dilemma at its centre. The playwright holds nothing back in a tragedy that, though first performed 412 years ago, continues to throw fast and hard punches. Fifteen actors, as well as a stage crew and team of technicians, have contributed months of labour to this collaborative endeavour. Contact dchurchward@ucc.on.ca for tickets.

The actual Stanley Cup made a visit to the Wilder Arena today for one glorious hour. Prep Dean of Students David Girard took a lucky group of Year 7s over to touch the legendary trophy. (An external group had reserved the lounge and the Cup for a party, which one can do apparently. Owing to a booking glitch however, the Cup was whisked away, but not before the students got their hands on it.)
