Check out our new BPK Peer Mentorship Program!

Apparently the BPK department has been dropping the ball in the mentorship area…but not any more! We are all over Peer Mentorship with a VENGEANCE!

SFU-BPK-red

We are starting our new program this Fall 2014 and are recruiting new Mentors to be pairing up with the incoming BPK first year students!

If you: are fun, engaging, talented, social, encouraging, knowledgeable and a third or fourth year student we want you to be a Mentor! Why be a mentor you ask? You will have an amazing impact on that new students first year, help them succeed, become more engaged in BPK and just allow them to have a way better time in their transition into SFU life. Is it hard to be a mentor? Not at all, and you have probably already mentored your younger friends without knowing it!

Be a part of a new awesome feature designed to bring the whole BPK community together! Tell your friends and get on board!

Bouldering – Nov. 19

What’s bouldering? It’s a type of rock climbing that involves shorter ascents which, due to their length, don’t require a rope – just a crash pad at the bottom. It’s fun, and we’re going! You can go too!

Check out the Facebook event and let us know if you plan on coming. We’ve got a pretty good group discount going on as they’re giving us the night-climbing rate before their night-climbing hours actually begin, and they’re throwing in rentals for free!

Australian professional school info session

If any of you have an interest in attending school for medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, or speech pathology, and are wondering what it’d be like to do it in Australia, then have I got news for you!

On September 19th (next Weds) from 4-6pm in AQ 5037, GlobaLinks Learning Abroad is hosting an info session to let you know about some of the opportunities they have for such endeavours. Several institutions are included, such as the Universities of Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland, and Griffith University.

You can RSVP, or get more information from their Facebook event.

I know people who’ve done physio down under and loved it, so if you’re thinking about any
of those career paths and are open to studying where there are more sun and funny accents, then check it out.
