    Making macarons can be a tricky procedure. Their batter can be quite delicate and the most minor of missteps can lead to the pastry coming out deflated, too crunchy or even hollowed. Despite failing time and time again to create a perfect macaron, Zoe Goode persevered. It wasn’t until after her seventh downfall that she […]Read More »
  • The road to Escondido

    Jessica Maros isn’t at all ashamed of her Canadian roots – it’s just that the band she fronts and the city she lives in couldn’t be farther from the land of beavers and back bacon.

  • Career services to host “Jobs for Caps” hiring fair

    For Eileen Wang, manager of Capilano University’s Career Services department, the lack of drive and direction from students has been disheartening. She described how students would come to her during drop-in hours with no formative career goals and no competitive edge, and it inspired her to take action. “We want [students] to have great education […]Read More »

    Over 190,000 tons of food is wasted in Metro Vancouver every year – more than 50 per cent are quality items that could’ve been eaten.

    Sip, sip, hurray

    Subway is a rather divisive place. Either it transports you to a new world of delicious, semi-healthy wonder or it brings you to a disappointing reality of yoga-mat-like-bread and chicken that’s actually only 50 per cent chicken. Let’s get back on track, though. Subway has been a staple of the student diet for ages. It’s […]
