My undergraduate university: The University of Windsor

Above is a picture of my favourite building at my first university. I spent a lot of time in this building. It's called Dillion Hall. The University of Windsor has the highest percentage of international students of any university in Canada. I was able to meet and hangout with people from Africa, Jamaica, Trinidad, Hong Kong, the UK, and of course the United States. Detroit, the Motor City is very close to Windsor. 

Below is a picture of the Ambassador Bridge. It's the bridge that takes you to Detroit. You can see it in Eminem's movie 8 Mile. 8 Mile is a road in Detroit. Watching 8 Mile brought back many memories for me.

When I wasn't studying I spent a lot of time at the campus radio station, CJAM-fm. I hosted a European progressive rock programme called "Gothic Rock" and I hosted a Jazz programme called "Jelly Roll Jazz". 

I was Assistant Station Manager, Director of Special Programming, and News Director. 
Many of my best memories of university come from my working at CJAM-fm.
