A Vantage College Christmas

James Ridge, principal of UBC Vantage College, hosted five students at his home for a festive Christmas meal over the holidays. James and his wife Donna prepared a traditional Christmas meal, and the group enjoyed eggnog (a first for some), holiday games and Christmas crackers. Students enjoyed meeting Raven, the Ridge family pet, and explaining what gravy was to each other (poutine was the best clue). James and family intend to make this is a new holiday tradition, and are thrilled to have shared Christmas with some new faces.

We look forward to supporting our students as they progress into term two. Countdown to July when our full cohort will be visiting UBC Okanagan to see all the unique activities the Kelowna campus has to offer.

Best wishes for a fantastic 2015 year!
