If while walking the halls of UFV you are photographed by a mysterious woman with blonde hair, don’t worry, you are not being hunted by the feds. Those days are over. You got out of the game. You are in fact being captured for posterity by our new photographer, Brittany Wiesner. If she approaches you to ask questions for UFV SPEAKS don’t fret, it really is a feature in The Cascade. We just want your take on UFV and life, so we can print it in the paper. Often our questions relate to the quality of UFV life in general and also your personal take on Star Wars; tie fighter or x-wing? Please let your voice be heard. It is important for students to speak out on the issues at hand because if they don’t things rarely change for the better. All of your input is valuable even if change for the better comes from slagging the sub-par food here at the good old U of FV.
Brittany will also be at varsity games and student events, so feel free to approach her and have your moment recorded. We want to see every side of UFV life whether it be jump shot or chemical reaction, business dudes hustling or hippy artists painting. UFV has a story to tell that goes beyond the stereotypes of Abbotsford and the scintillating scent of manure in the morning, and we want to share with you readers in the telling.
Let us know what your team or student group is doing and we can send Brittany to grab some images. Let’s be proud of our school visually, despite the awful salmon color, and brave enough to answer a few questions. If everyone shares their story, I think students here at UFV would be surprised at the diversity of thought, belief, origin and style that surrounds them every day.
