Library User of the Month - March 2012

Veerpaul Bhullar
Business Administration (Accounting)

“I am currently in my first year of Business Administration with Accounting as my major. After the completion of my course, I am planning on furthering my education to obtain my CGA. Apart from my studies, I am currently volunteering for the Student Ambassador Program.

Regarding any library, one may think of it as a place meant just for studies and without any excitement or fun. But for me as an international student from India, the Vera Bracken Library in our college is just like a home for me where I relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, spend time doing assignments, solving problems, making new friends and feeling at home. The staff in the library is really helpful and cooperative towards students. I learnt a lot from them and get solutions to many of my problems there.

The environment as well as the deliberate layout of the library is very positive and inviting. I feel great to be selected as the library user of the month and want to express my gratitude towards the library staff for their endless efforts in creating and maintaining a positive learning atmosphere for all the students.”

Library User of the Month - February 2012

Dorlan Hesjedal
Second Year CADD Student

"Design is where science and art break even."
-Robin Mathew

“That is what the Vera Bracken Library is all about, an environment that has both form and function. With its high ceilings, extensive use of daylighting, and deliberate layout; the Vera Bracken Library is a very inviting setting. As a 2nd year Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) student, I occasionally like to take a break from my workstation and come down to the library for some rejuvenation. The soft seating area along the West wall, with its large windows, has become my sanctuary. What really completes the experience are the people. A person can design the“best” building, but without people, you just have a shell. The staff here at the Vera Bracken Library makes this environment complete. As a future alumni, I look forward to seeing the Medicine Hat College continue to utilize sustainable building design in their future projects.”
