Oh - but now it's Caronport, SK.
I'm a pastors kid who loves the Toronto Maple Leafs. I graduated from Caronport High School in 2002, and came back a few years later to graduate from Briercrest with a BA in Youth Ministry.
I spend my time here directing our big youth retreat Youth Quake, traveling as a speaker and serving as Chaplain to our high school.
I love Briercrest because of the whole-person education you receive, the community that is a given every year because of our unique location, and the effort to develop biblically-centered people who serve first.

Eating in the cafeteria… it's actually good AND it's all you can eat!
Sage Advice for Students Heading to Briercrest
Bring a Mini-fridge. Befriend the first person you meet who owns a car. Don't date 2 girls in one semester. In fact, don't date anyone until thanksgiving. Buy a Briercrest hoodie when you arrive - it gets cold. Do all your reading in September - then its party-time for 3 months. Tell all your friends who chose other colleges that you have no school on Fridays … then remind them it's easy to transfer into Briercrest. The Cafeteria is the social hub - work the table circuit and meet many people. Athletes aren't snobs - they just seem that way. Youth Min students aren't lazy - they just seem that way. If you work the schedule the right way - you could be looking at a 4 day weekend every weekend. Say yes to the first person who says "I'm going home this week - you wanna come?" Always say yes - it's a good way to see the country. Buy a unique backpack - nothing worse than 7 people having your backpack. On that note - make sure you buy a backpack. Pretend to care about the Riders. Get out of your Rogers cell phone contract - reception sucks here for Rogers. Dorms are awesome - Noise-cancelling headphones are more awesome. Ask your parents for gift cards to Wal-mart, Boston Pizza, and 7/11 - you'll need those often. Buy a thin Bible - easier on the backpack. Call your mother - she misses you. And on a serious note: Thank the Lord that He led to you the best place to study in all the country. You won't find anything like the Briercrest experience anywhere else in Canada.
