Getting to know Bishop’s – Meet Dr. Kerry Hull

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 Dr. Kerry Hull, Full Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences.

Favourite book of all-time?
The books I remember the most are those I read as a child – Gordon Korman books, Ender’s Game, The Mixed Up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler.

Favourite group or singer?
Nine Inch Nails, Hozier, or Leonard Cohen (depends on the day).

Favourite movie of all-time?
Chariots of Fire.

Favourite spot on campus?
I’m excited about the new greenhouse, especially once it is filled with hops and tomato plants and all things green.

Favourite spot off-campus?
Mont Bellevue in Sherbrooke – they have great mountain bike trails.

Favourite #Ubishops moment?
I was married in St. Mark’s Chapel on June 24, 2000 to another Bishop’s professor (Norm Jones).  We shared the day with many BU community members, some of whom did an epic song-and-dance number at the reception that was choreographed by a BU student who is now a BU professor. It was amazing.

Describe #Ubishops in three words.
Community, opportunity, curiosity

If you had to switch jobs with someone on campus, what would it be and why?
I’m pretty happy with my job, but if I had to switch, I would be a librarian (because I like books and research) or work with the Buildings & Grounds crew (because I like to be outside).

If you had to join a club or student group on campus, what would it be and why?
The ski club – skiing is my favourite sport, so the more skiing the better.

If you had to go back to school, which program would you pick and why?
Music.  I played the piano and sang in choirs as a kid, and I took up the cello a few years ago.  It would be great to spend 3 years making music.
