Northern British Columbia
Hi, everyone. This group looks pretty dead, but I'll try anyway.|
I'm from Victoria, finishing up my undergraduate degree in Ontario, and thinking of doing my graduate degree at UNBC. Unfortunately, I've never been to Prince George, or any northern town other than Bella Bella. I'm wondering if you guys could tell me a little about it.
A) I've heard it's pretty much just red necks. Is this actually true, or just one of those dumb stereotypes?
B) What is the bus system like? I don't have a car, and would really rather not buy one. Is life without a car possible there?
C) What's the university itself like? In particular, what's the Natural Resources department like?
D) This is a little lame, but how easy is it to socialize there? I won't know anyone, the lab I'll be joining is small, and to top it all off I'm sort of shy. Is it hard to get to know people there? Easy? This is the first university I've seen without a LJ community, so that doesn't bode well.
If anyone takes the time to read and reply to this, thanks a bunch!
