School is well (I've got great classes this semester). The Economic crisis hasn't really affected me all that much - I was just as broke last year
at this time as I am now. I work in the summer, pay off my loans, then re-take them back out again in September. Considering I've been in school for
4 years - I'm not that much in debt. Not to mention,in case of emergency I have a couple of parents who will help me out if I need it.
Most students here in British Columbia, don't realize that we have REALLY LOW tuition compared to other Universities. Text-books are always a killer,
but tuition is VERY reasonable. When I went to College in Alberta, I was paying almost TWICE as much as I am now. So for me, when I switched
Universities, I ended up saving money on my tuition.
I'm not sure if other students have felt the economic issues, some of the international students might be though...Our campus is almost 50%
