25 years ago in Nexus: November 4, 2015 issue

November 4, 2015 by Greg Pratt, managing editor


Student society mover and shaker: In “Student president resigns” in our October 30, 1990 issue, we reported that James Grey was stepping down as president of the Camosun College Student Society (CCSS). Grey said in his resignment letter that he had accomplished his main goal of establishing a student society that was autonomous and independent of the college, yet still influential within Camosun, which the CCSS is to this day.

New technology, old technology, confusing technology: The new Lansdowne library was opening in 1990, and it had lots of extras in it. In “New library means expanded AV services” we talked about those extras. “Camosun faculty participating in an uplink to other schools is now a possibility,” we reported. No word yet on what that means.

Bike advice for the ages: We gave some advice in our Why cycle? column that still holds true all these years later. Writer Dave Mosley cautioned cyclists in Victoria about not doing anything “stupid” while on two wheels. “You’ll get hit,” he warned. “And the car always wins.”
