Dal proposes tuition hike for incoming international students

Dalhousie University has proposed to increase international tuition by almost 16 per cent in the 2023-2024 school year. 

Earlier this fall, Dalhousie University proposed a tuition increase and tuition guarantee for international students entering Dal studies next year. By proposing a tuition guarantee for incoming international students, their tuition will remain the same for each year they study at Dal.

Chemistry students faint in lab, no cause given by university

Five students from a first-year Dalhousie University chemistry lab were taken to hospital Oct. 11, including two who fainted. The cause of the hospitalizations remains unknown. 

The lab, entitled “qualitative identification of cations” took place from 1 to 4 p.m on that date. It entailed testing unknown substances by exposing them to different solutions to determine the presence of specific cations. A cation is a specific type of ion studied in chemistry.

Romance: Indulge in guilty pleasures

Romance as a genre is often dismissed as fluff. As books to entertain bored housewives. That is a horrendous misconception. Romance slaps!

The long game

To help fill in for departed stars Keevan Veinot and Alex Carson, the Dalhousie University Tigers men’s basketball team brought in Joshua Koulamallah, a six-foot-four forward from Gatineau, Que. However, it has been a long road to joining the three-time defending Atlantic University Sport (AUS) champions for Koulamallah.
