Getting to Know Bishop’s – Meet Dr. Suzanne Hood

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. Suzanne Hood, Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department.

Favourite book of all-time?
Too difficult to choose! I’m currently enjoying Oliver Sack’s last book, Rivers of Consciousness

Favourite group or singer?
So hard to choose: I’m a long-time fan of Bob Dylan and I really like the Canadian vocalist Charlotte Day Wilson. I have a toddler at home, though, so these days I’m usually listening to Sesame Street.

Favourite movie of all-time?
I will always have soft spots for When Harry Met Sally, and Mel Brooks’s Young Frankenstein

Favourite spot on campus?
In the winter, the agora and café in the Library Learning Commons; in warmer weather, the bike trail/walking path beside the golf course.

Favourite spot off-campus?
The public beach on Lake Massawippi in North Hatley is a wonderful place to be in the summer. The bike/cross-country trails at Mont Orford are also a close second.

Favourite #Ubishops moment?
During the 2019 convocation, I loved the speech Kim Thúy gave in accepting her honorary doctorate – inspired and hilarious.

Describe #Ubishops in three words.
Community. Warmth. Loyalty.

If you had to switch jobs with someone on campus, what would it be and why?
If I could make myself useful in the Foreman Art Gallery, I’d love to spend my time there.

If you had to join a club or student group on campus, what would it be and why?
Art Club and Maker Club sound like fun to me.

If you had to go back to school, which program would you pick and why?
I’d start with art history and studio art (my first loves); I’d keep going with philosophy (you can never have enough); I’d add some literature courses, comparative world religions, throw in some more biochemistry and physiology, some computer programming…
