Happy Holidays! Faculty of Environment's 2019 holiday video

Holiday greetings to friends old and new!

In the last 50 years, much has changed, it is true,

With more students, more programs, more careers to pursue.

And with all the growth, the tools once used

Can now seem quite puzzling, leaving students bemused.

In keeping with our holiday tradition, we hope you enjoy this year’s holiday video. It’s a light-hearted nod to the past as today’s students take on yesterday’s technology.
