20 Years Ago In Nexus: October 15, 2014 issue

October 15, 2014 by Greg Pratt, managing editor

Sleepy students: Our Speak Up in the October 17, 1994 issue of Nexus posed one of the most important questions we’ve ever asked students: where is the best place to sleep on campus? Some popular snooze spots two decades back included Fisher 100 and the student lounge in the library. Where are your favourite spots to nap today? We asked in this issue’s Speak Up! See below to find out.

PI on campus: The main cover story for this issue, “Investigation of student raises questions of confidentiality,” talked about the strange case of investigator Bill Hayman. Hayman was going around campus asking instructors about a former Camosun student. He wasn’t getting far, though: “I refused to give him any information,” Camosun English instructor Gordon Alexander told us. “I was fairly direct and turfed him out of my office.”

Ball hockey is hell: Due to a low number of participants, the Camosun Ball Hockey League was down to only three teams back in late 1994, which was too bad for them, but it did produce this entertaining opening sentence of a sports story in this issue: “Camosun Ball Hockey League coordinator Kevin Bendall can summarize what has been happening in the fall 1994 league in one word: hell.” We hope it got better for him!
