What People Say about Chinese Character Decomposition [Apr. 7th, 2017|07:10 am]
University of Victoria

Craig Kiessling I *really* like this logic - especially as a traditional Chinese martial arts teacher - as it's similar logic for true understanding and applicable foundation knowledge.

Building Hours [Dec. 9th, 2010|01:14 pm]
University of Victoria

Does anyone know what time the buildings get locked at night? Specifically the SSM building. Especially now that it's winter break... I have a paper due tomorrow morning, so just wondering I can get away with dropping it off tonight or if I have to wake up early instead.

Car wash [Nov. 5th, 2010|11:25 pm]
University of Victoria

Does anyone know of a car wash in or close to town where I could wash the inside of my car? I parked my car near a nut tree and tracked all the mushy green husks in and now the carpet is very dirty. I don't really want to scrub it out by hand if I don't have to.

Flamenco - Juerga! [Jul. 14th, 2010|01:20 am]
University of Victoria

Dear Friends,

You are invited to this Saturday`s Flamenco Juerga!

A Juerga is a `gypsy party`. Entertainment is provided by the audience -- flamenco singing, palmas, dancing -- many of whom will be students with Alma de Espana, the local flamenco school. There will be opportunity for those with no experience in flamenco to participate, but if you prefer to eat the tapas and drink the sangria, no one will pressure you to do otherwise.

You can reserve tickets by e-mail or telephone, as you will see below.


I am writing to invite you to the Flamenco de la Isla Society's first Juerga - a Gypsy Party. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy flamenco music, Spanish tapas and excellent libations. This is not a concert! Rather, it is a chance to dance and sing fiesta pieces and share the joy of flamenco with old friends and some new folks too.

The event takes place on Saturday, July 17th, from 7:30 - 10:30PM, at Henderson Hall, 1632 Yale Street in Oak Bay.

I am writing to you now because we need to sell tickets IN ADVANCE. The good thing is, you can RESERVE TICKETS BY EMAIL through norahdeane@shaw.ca or whitneyf@shaw.ca. OR CALL 250-652-5536. Then, we will have your tickets ready for you at the door.

Tickets are $15. There will also be Spanish Tapas by Ottavio's for a small cost. And wine, beer, Sangria and non-alcoholic options will also be available.

This event is a fundraiser for all the good things that the Society supports, including upcoming shows and student scholarships. Sorry, no minors.

Gracias y hasta luego!

Full-Time vs Part-Time [Jul. 2nd, 2010|01:34 am]

Hey there, I am new to the community and to Uvic.

Their site is super confusing and I was just wondering how many courses (or units) equals being a full-time student.

UVic Rabbit Management Plan to Cull 90% of Campus Rabbits [Jun. 29th, 2010|11:23 pm]
University of Victoria

The University of Victoria today (Mon June 28) released their Rabbit Management Plan which calls for the killing of 1200-1400 rabbits on campus, beginning immediately. 200 rabbits will be permitted to live in certain zones.

If you are opposed to this, please sign the petition below and help spread the word:

Also please take this 4 questions survey (less than 30 secs):

i know the large population of rabbits is a problem, but there are more humane low-cost methods (sanctuaries, relocation, adoptions, neuter and release programs for free by vets) than trapping and killing rabbits by cruel methods (poisoning, heart stick, suffocation, snaring, starvation etc).  Please sign and help spread the word.  Thank you for your time!!!
