After earning a film degree from the University of Regina, Jung Seok Seo was anxious to bust into the industry. He moved to Toronto in 2009 and took an unpaid internship in post-production at an ad agency. He aspired to become an editor but, as he says, instead felt like an “office slave.”

Guess what, eating human flesh is a real thing.  When most people think of cannibalism, they think of zombies, like the ones on AMC's The Walking Dead. Rituals around death and human consumption have long fascinated us in popular culture. It has become an increasingly popular topic in academia, too.

In November 2010, a project to upgrade the College Avenue campus was announced in the University of Regina’s 2011-2012 operating budget forecast. They titled it, “Major Capital Proposal: The College Avenue Campus Revitalization,” and said it would be funded with an estimated $67 million in federal, provincial, city and university grants, as well as donations.

Recently, the federal government has made quite a stir with the financial cutbacks to research programs across Canada. According to CBC, over the past five years more than 2,000 scientists have been let go and hundreds of programs and research facilities have lost their funding. However, at the beginning of January, it was announced that researchers at the University of Regina were rewarded more than $400,000 in grants from a combination of federal and provincial funding. This begs the question: what is so special about this particular research?

Diversity is common around Regina and, yet, how much do we really know about the different cultures that surround us in our multicultural society? Walking down the halls of the university, there are a variety of faces that pass by. Among the chaos of students rushing from class to class, do you ever pause and think, "Is what I know of this person in front of me a fact or a stereotype?"

When it comes to carbon emissions, Saskatchewan occupies a significant area on the world map.

 

The province has the highest carbon footprint in Canada, according to Jim Harding, a former environmental sciences professor at the University of Waterloo. “The global average per capita is four tonnes per person. Saskatchewan’s average per person is 72 tonnes.”

The main floor of the University of Regina’s Research and Innovation Centre was transformed on Nov. 23 for the Aboriginal Career Centre’s career day. Displays were up, business cards were exchanged, and some students may have met their future employers.
