Fall in Vancouver is here! You know what this means; the days of rainy autumn weather, pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters and knitted blankets are coming. The best part of fall though, is observing the trees as they change their colours.
We have compiled our favourite spots where you can see the fall colours:

This section is for those of you who are just getting used to communicating with your professors and managers via email. As we are so used to texting on social media, we forget texting does not apply to emails. The golden rule for the art of emailing is to never forget that emails are a professional form of communication. So, what can you do to represent yourself better?

“My name is Priscila, I’m from Brazil. I have a background in Psychology and I’m part of the GEC reservations team as a leasing Administrator.
My first time living overseas was in Melbourne, Australia. My initial plan was only to go there and learn English. However, I was blown away by the notable diversity in Melbourne; I learnt a new perspective on how to see the world.
I decided to move to Canada because I could live in a similar culture which honors diversity. Plus, with my theoretical knowledge and the experience I obtained in Australia, I believe I can assist International students with their journey of living in different countries, where opportunities for a better life are constantly given.
As you can tell, I am very interested in learning about new cultures, trying new and delicious food, and honoring diversity in different people and cultures.”
Enjoying your time at GEC? Leave us a written review and we’ll randomly draw a resident every newsletter to win a $25 gift card to a business of your choice! (We’ll send you a list to choose from.)
Your Google name must match the name in your reservation to qualify.
