Looking Back & Moving Forward

As O- Week is coming to a close and everyone gets ready to start classes again I always like to look back…and with this year’s O-week theme being ‘Throw Back to the 90’s’ it is always fun to look back at what was happening.

In 1995:

  • The DVD is announced
  • eBay is founded
  • Quebec independentists narrowly lose a referendum to negotiate independence from Canada
  • Batman Forever and Clueless were successful on the big screen
  • Canadian Alanis Morrissette’s 1995 album goes on to win a Grammy for Album of the year
  • Jean Chrétien was the Prime Minister
  • Iqaluit is chosen as the capital of the new territory (known now as Nunavut)
  • The toonie was introduced

No matter what year you were born or what year you are in at Brescia, it is exciting to think about all the possibilities and potentials that await you and your classmates. With the opening of Clare Hall today it is true that a year or two can make all the difference.

Enjoy your time here at Brescia! Four years will go by faster than you can possibility imagine! So use this opportunity to try new things, get involved, ask questions, and meet all those around you.

We can’t wait to see you next week and over the year!
