            Lots of '80's fun and some learning in between!

            I thoroughly enjoyed my time at VIU (formerly Malaspina college). It was full of kids like me trying to figure out what they wanted to do, and the staff understood that. While I don't remember all of it for obvious reasons, I do smile when I look back at what I do. Thanks for the memories VIU ;-)

            Nice learning environment!

            My experience at VIU was made of lots of friends from Canada and all over the world, friendly school staff, small-town community feeling, relaxed environment, being close to the sea, and an 1hr 40min ferry ride away from big town Vancouver. I'd say it's a good place to start your university life, and of course, you always have the option to transfer else later on!
