This morning, the University of Alberta shared its top 10 stories list for the year. Indeed, there have been many ups and downs throughout 2012. Though the dodgeball world record was reclaimed from the grasp of UC-Irvine, and despite the hiring of a handful of deans (Medicine and Native Studies, to name a few) across campus, there has been considerable tragedy. The deaths of standout students Isaak Kornelsen and Taite Boomer show that life is truly fragile, and that all members of the U of A community should live “in the moment.” You can find the link to the top 10 here.
