Vintage Voice!

Unearthing Classic Articles from Previous Issues of The Voice Magazine

One thing we notice many AU students are interested in, is other AU students!  Over the years, The Voice has featured hundreds of AU students, along with their interests and goals, struggles and successes.

A grandmother goes back to school.  Almost 20 years ago, The Voice interviewed student Taleathahh-Rae Livingstone, from Medicine Hat AB.  “I began very slowly with Athabasca in 1996 taking a course here and there, and switching credentials twice! I was testing the waters to see if I could learn, if I would enjoy learning, and if I could stick with learning.”  AU Profiles – Student: Taleathahh-Rae Livingstone, December 4, 2002.

Transitioning from in-person to online learning.  The Voice‘s current student profile series, “Minds We Meet”, debuted in 2014 with Ontario student John MacPherson.  “It was a strange transition going from the lecture hall to completely online. At first it was a bit of a struggle staying on top of it. No professors to push; it was all up to me.”  Minds We Meet – Students Like You: Interviewing John MacPherson, September 5, 2014.

If you’re a current AU student, we’d like to feature you in an upcoming “Minds We Meet”!  Contact us at (or use our contact form) and we’ll connect you with one of our friendly interviewers.
