“Lest We Forget”: Badgers Remember.

Hello Future Badgers!

November is a time for celebration! Celebration for coming to the end of classes, celebration for the US Thanksgiving, Black Friday, World Kindness Day, Clean-Out-Your-Refrigerator Day (a day that should be celebrated in out non-traditional residences; Village & Quarry View). It’s also a month to be thankful. To be thankful that Canada is primarily a nation at peace.

This November 11th, please remember to take time out of your day to be thankful and remember all those who have fallen and continue to fall for our country, for our safety, and for our freedoms.

Here on Brock campus, you’ll find the flags on the Schmon Tower at half-mast, and most professors will take time out of their lectures, labs, seminars, etc. to pause for two minutes of silence if their classes are running at 11:11 in order to allow everyone to share there respects for these heroes.

These heroes of our Country have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe. The least that we can do is dedicate two minutes of our lives to pay them respects.

Brock On, Badgers.


About Iain

Hello Future Badgers! My name is Iain, and I am a fourth year Concurrent Education I/S B.A./B.Ed. student (teaching subjects in Drama & History) and Head Resident in the Residence Department here at Brock! First thing’s first, I love this newfound second home that I call Brock and I’m hoping I can pass off all of that love to all of you! This summer I spent an incredible four weeks teaching and living at an Outdoor Education Camp in the Algonquin Highlands and would love to tell you all about it! Through the experiences as an actively involved University student here at Brock, I have seen that maintaining a social life, as well as an academic life is just as important to becoming a well-rounded and balanced student (it’s almost like eating both your fruits and vegetables!) In the coming months, I hope to pass this knowledge on to you, to ensure that your love of all things Brock grows strong. Brock On Badgers!
