Getting to Know Bishop’s – Meet Francine Hamel

Getting to know your #Ubishops community is a must if you wish to fully immerse yourself into the BUbble! We decided to help you out by conducting monthly interviews with staff and faculty that contribute to the school’s success. This month we had the opportunity to talk to Francine Hamel, Coordinator of Student Support Services (Counselling Office).

Favourite book of all-time?
The Bible.

Favourite group or singer?
Bonnie Raitt.

Favourite movie of all-time?
The Waltons. It is actually a TV series, if that counts – if not, The Greatest Story Ever Told.

Favourite spot on campus?
The wooded bike path that leads to the Old Lennoxville Golf Club.

Favourite spot off-campus (Eastern Townships)?
Any wooded walking or biking path (Johnville Bog; Magog/Orford; Yamaska/Bromont; etc).

Describe #Ubishops in three words.
Sincerely, caring community!

If you had to switch jobs with someone on campus, what would it be and why?
Honestly, I love what I do and wouldn’t want anyone else’s job!

If you had to join a club or student group on campus, what would it be and why?
I can only pick one?! AgroBishops would be one I would enjoy, especially to learn about garden (I don’t have a green thumb, but I LOVE organic vegetables and herbs!).

If you had to go back to school, which program would you pick and why?
Probably Sociology, in order to work with the homeless.
