Our next stop on the trip was Kamloops, to our hotel. The hotel we have stayed at on past trips was booked up, so this was our first experieince at the DoubleTree in downtown Kamloops. The students gave it two thumbs up on account of the pool and warrm cookie on arrival! An added bonus for us was the complimentary breakfast the next morning before packing up and doing the short drive to Thompson Rivers University for their Day of Arts & Sciences event. Over 300 students from local high schools attended the event as well. After an inspiring introduction by a few of the Deans and current TRU students, the Gr.11's were off to get a little taste of what attending university classes would be like. Students were able to register for three 1-hour sessions conducted by university staff from a wide range of faculites. Sessions were offered in International Politics, Philosophy, Chemistry, and Respiratory Therapy, just to name a few. The day went quickly and our students had a lot to share about their experiences. It was a much quieter trip home after a busy day and not surprisingly, little sleep the night before ... much like a true university student!
