GGA Retreat 2018

September 24, 2018

As per tradition, the GGA organized the annual fall graduate retreat— this year to Bowen Island! The trip began with a rainy ferry ride over to the island, but soon cleared as we hiked our way up to the beautiful Dorman Point lookout. We then made our way back down and enjoyed a big picnic lunch, followed by a fun (*read: competitive!!) game of capture the flag. The day also included a nature walk to Killarney Lake, a Q+A session about grad life, living in Metro Vancouver, and geography, and finally a delicious dinner at the Bowen Island Pub before heading back to Vancouver. Overall, the retreat was an awesome day of community building and fun and has us all looking forward towards another great year to come.  

Participants included: Aateka Shashank, Alex Smith, Anika Vassell, Cora Cao, David Swanlund, Katie Gravestock, Liam Fox, Max Hudson, Natalia Perez, Travis Gingerich, Zach Cameron, Dania Clarke, and Leah Rosenkrantz.
