Ask Alice

Is college the right time to lose my virginity?

It depends on the person. After all, no time is the right time, but you should only ever do something until you feel completely ready and safe. You shouldn’t feel pressured to lose your virginity because of others, if you are not prepared enough or think you shouldn’t then perhaps it isn’t the best time. There is no shame in waiting.

Too Much Free Time?

Whether you’re a first semester student or a returning student, clubs are one of the greatest resources that our school can provide. In clubs, you can find new friends, join a cause, and enhance your CV.

Hidden in Herzberg

Food, friends, wifi, and more food – located in the basement of Herzberg, The Oval, our campus café, was just reopened last semester after being closed for renovations. The Oval goes back to when Herzberg was first built, along with the tunnels connecting it to the Brittain building. The tunnels are now closed after unfortunate crimes that took place inside and a fire burning the inside of the Brittain building leaving it abandoned. Nevertheless, The Oval is now open and ready for business.

What’s a Bandersnatch?

Q: So, what is a Bandersnatch? Does it bear any resemblance to Lewis Carroll’s fictional creature?

A: The name of our newspaper is indeed taken from Carroll’s novel Through the Looking-Glass, but what you find on the stands is John Abbott College’s student-run campus newspaper. No one’s really quite sure what Carroll’s Bandersnatch really looks like, but the general consensus seems to be that it’s big and ugly (and furious). Our paper is not.
