There’s nothing better than combining the decadence of chocolate with the relaxation of yoga. On Tuesday, November 22, UFV's yoga club and mental health awareness club did just that. The yoga session incorporated mindful eating into the poses.

Tis the season I abhor. November 12, the day after Remembrance Day, unofficially marks the beginning of the Christmas season. Malls are full, decorations are out, and chocolate is appearing everywhere. Although there are a few things I do enjoy about the holiday, namely the food and candy canes, there’s one part I absolutely cannot stand: Christmas music.

Art Battle Brings Competitive Painting to Chilliwack Campus

UFV’s Chilliwack campus was host to the 431st Art Battle in Canada on Thursday, October 20. Held in the Trades and Technology Centre, the battle was an array of booths set up along the halls leading guests to centre stage where the canvases stood on easels awaiting their artists.

There’s a new sport coming to UFV, and it’s called the Art Battle. Artists will go head-to-head in three heats, painting a spectacular piece, each in only 20 minutes. Only one victor will emerge, and the still-wet canvasses will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. This is a new kind of spectator sport with full audience participation.
