CDS fed a love of learning
Letter to the Editor
Re: “Going the distance for a degree”
I was pleased that you acknowledged the important work performed by Continuing and Distance Studies (CDS).
In the 1990s, while living in Port Coquitlam, BC, I completed several correspondence courses through CDS, my favourite being Introduction to World Religions.
I have very fond memories of trekking to UBC in April to write exams with other Queen’s students who were living in the Lower Mainland. For me, these courses were instrumental in developing a love of learning and, eventually, a career in academia.
Thank you so much to past and present CDS staff for your dedication and hard work. I wish you continued success.
