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 people that contribute to the school’s success, whether it is a faculty or staff member, a student or an alumni. Let’s kick things off with introducing you to Dr. Stine Linden-Andersen, Bishop’s University’s new Dean of Students.
Favourite book of all-time
The Student Code of Conduct 😉 I’m sort of kidding, but it’s important for all students to know. Being Danish, I really like reading Søren Kirkegård, but I also love lighter stuff like The Mocking Jay series.
I am in love with all Adele albums. You might hear them in my office hallway from time to time. I listen to them when I have a moment to relax in my office.
Favourite movie of all-time
There is no getting around my love of Dirty Dancing. I am too embarrassed to say how many times I’ve seen it….
Favourite spot on campus
I’m a huge fan of the golf course and the path leading to it. I still can’t believe I get to work at an institution with its own golf course.
I would have to say Lake Massawippi. I live in North Hatley and the lake is truly beautiful at all times of year.
Favourite #Ubishops moment
It would have to be my second day of teaching in 2013. I was sitting near the the library on a bench, peacefully reading an article on the stability of personality traits; when all of a sudden a herd of 1st year students all dressed as animals (think: lions and tigers and bears! oh my!) came running out of a residence. I knew then that I had landed at a very special spot.
Describe #Ubishops in three words
Community, Possibilities, and Involvement
If you had to switch jobs with someone on campus, what would it be and why?
I would like to work at the old library in McGreer. It is a beautiful quiet space with lots of information and history right there.
If you had to join a club or student group on campus, what would it be and why?
I have a sore spot for the debating team. They work hard every year examining difficult and complex issues from all angles and need to relay the most persuasive argument in very short time.
If you had to go back to school, which program would you pick and why?
I kind of love all things about school and learning (shocking! I know). I would do a Liberal Arts degree. That way I could sample a variety of subjects.
