  Getting personal with your history profPDF files may take a moment to load

Sitting in Dr. Herman Ganzevoort's office has always given me a sense of history. The irony of that statement should be duly noted. I didn't exactly know what I was searching for in university, but when it came to how I wanted to be treated by a professor the answer was very succinct. No bullshit, tell it to me straight. Don't hold back your opinion. Students pay thousands of dollars for an endowment of useless knowledge when often all we seek is the truth. Not in a metaphysical sort of way, but in a day-to day way.

And so it begins...

The first cup of coffee I ever had was late in my elementary school years in a grocery store near my house.

It was a nasty affair, loaded with sugar and cream and it thoroughly ruined my interest in coffee for years.

1. When you go over Balfour Col, you can practically avoid all crevasses if you hang close to the rock ridge on the left. This is of particular benefit in white-out conditions because it leads almost all the way to Scott Duncan Hut.

This past weekend, the Juno Awards came to Calgary for the first time. Somehow, the Gauntlet managed to snag accreditation for both the highly-publicized awards show on Sunday and the low-key gala the night before. Intrepid boy reporter and Entertainment Editor Ryan Pike recorded his experiences for posterity with over 10 pages of disorganized, handwritten notes and over an hour of audio recordings.
