The Upper College Heights is an affordable student resident where students schooling in Thompson Rivers University mostly reside. it is fairly cheaper than on-campus residents and close to all the necessary areas such as the Super store, Husky, Walk-in clinic, Sahali Mall and much more. Students find it very easy to move about these areas. The Upper College Heights does not just welcome local students but students from all over the world. Below is an interview with some students.

What My Philosophy class taught me. Do you take time to say thank you?

For the first time in my life, I baked cakes by myself, 4 at  the same time and that was when I began to really appreciate cakes and I saw the importance of cakes in Weddings, Birthdays, and anniversaries, among many other options. I began to google cakes and I realized that it is also a big part of pop culture. Because I am so addicted to E! I always thought that Pop culture was only related to latest movies, music, reality shows (especially Keeping up with the Kardashians and subsequent spin-offs), and other form of entertainment. I did not realize that other finest things of life such as cakes and flowers were also part of pop culture and even the funniest, like hash tags. Flowers are so beautiful and the they hold unfading memories. Cakes have this really irresistible tastes and they are always beautifully made.

I wanna take this time and say thank you to Jeff for teaching me most of what I need to know about pop culture. I remember at first, when I took the course it was my “trial class” and I told my advisor that I will drop it after two weeks if it does not really help my career in future. Now here I am, almost rounding up the semester, even if I don’t feel too good, I drag myself to this class, just because… my instructor has made me love the course. Jeff, thank you for elaborating my mind on pop culture, I never found comics interesting but now, I am always on google trying to learn something new. Thank you.. very much. I don’t know if this is a part of pop culture but at least, I know saying thank you and appreciating someone sure is. Thanks Jeff.

someday, I wish my name would be found here; What a man can do… you finish the sentence.

Just today, I woke up this morning to read the news, both home and abroad and I bumped into Forbes’ list of richest singers. I know I am the most introvert person I have ever met but I wanna be a triple threat: singer, dancer and actress. I love entertainment so much and to tell you the truth, the only reason I work out in the gym is just because I want to be physically fit enough for my job as an entertainer. so as I was saying, i ran into Forbes’ list of world’s most paid musicians and the richest were women. All those people who consider gender first or under estimate women should take a look at this list. Women topped men and you can imagine Beyonce earned more than Jay Z last year.

Did you know in Nigeria, to be an upcoming entertainer, you must pay to be featured in a movie

This is stupid and ridiculous. I know it sounds unbelievable, but it’s fact! A-list Nollywood (Nigerian Entertainment Industry) actors & actresses get paid for featuring in movies, but if you’re an unknown actor struggling to get into the movie industry, some movie producers make you pay to feature in their movies. That’s the new trend now. I’m sure some Nollywood practitioners will come here to deny this but y’all know it’s true. And if you don’t know this already, people need to start investigating this.

If you’re looking to feature in a movie, all you need to do is pay a fee, no audition is required. For minor roles, these producers demand anything from N50k to N100k…it all depends on the role they are giving you. If you want to play a lead role it’s between N500k to N1million. Waka pass people are even made to pay. 

The trick some of these producers use is this; they say they are not making money from these movies because people aren’t buying them so can’t invest all their money in it. They also say finding financiers to pay for the production of a movie is hard, so for these movies to see the light of day, every cast member has to contribute. Thing is, many are eager to pay. Several people told me that it’s the girls they refer to as ‘runz girls’ looking for popularity that started this trend. They would offer movie producers money to feature in their movie so they can refer to themselves as actresses and now it’s become a part of Nollywood.

But let me state here that there are some movie producers who don’t do this…not all of them demand for money. But a lot of them do. Is that OK? What’s your thought on this new trend?
