Welcome back readers, today I'll be walking you through some highlights of our university's last (but not least) faculty. Take a break from the midterm madness and read all about what the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science has been up to!
Well my Student Speak readers, this is my last blog for the year (and likely ever!) so to all who read the blog and/or tried the food at the various “student reviewed and approved” locations across Oshawa and the rest of Durham, thank-you! The feature this month is a focus on the food of the islands, as we enter the delight that is Mama D’s Jamaican Cuisine. Mama D’s is located at 1128 Simcoe St. N., conveniently less than a minute from the bus stop, in the plaza besides Little Caesars pizza. It is more North on Simcoe, relatively close to Taunton Rd. Access for students is easy! Take the 401 Simcoe bus, from either the downtown or north campus, and get off the bus near the plaza, and bam, all the Jamaican food you could want awaits!
Happy Nutrition Month UOIT students! Guest blogger Jacqueline Brown, a master's student here at the university, brings some information to the blog about Nutrition Month and how you can get involved!
This March, Dietitians of Canada is launching a Nutrition Month campaign to help you unlock the potential of food! During each week of Nutrition Month, the UOIT Arcand Nutrition Lab will support this healthy eating strategy by sharing recipes, ideas and tips to help you incorporate healthy nutrition practices into your daily life. The Arcand Nutrition Lab is run by Dr. JoAnne Arcand, a registered dietitian, researcher, and professor at UOIT. The lab conducts clinical and population health research to identify nutritional barriers for chronic disease development and creates and tests interventions that can help reduce these risks. All of her master's and practicum students have a passion for making healthy eating more accessible and enjoyable, while educating others about how they can use nutrition to both prevent and heal from common chronic illnesses.

1. Buying in Bulk is not Always Cheaper
I know it seems like a perfect idea to purchase more than you need because there is a deal going on, but if you aren’t going to need four packs of bacon before they would realistically expire in your fridge, should you buy four to save three dollars? No, unless you have a deep freezer to keep them in!
Welcome back from your well-deserved reading week students! I hope you all had a relaxing break and were able to get done (some) studying as well!

If this is of interest to you, then please read on!

Hey readers, happy almost reading week. Hope your semester is going well so far—reading week is so close, it’s tangible! Take a break from your midterm studying to read all about what’s been going on in the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHSc).
Hello Student Speak readers! I hope you're ready for a mountain of food today, as we enter the realm of glorious, glorious cheesesteaks! This month, the feature is a new local Oshawa spot right downtown, called Hulk Hoagies CheeseSteaks. They are located at 92 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa, ON. This is right near the downtown location, just north of the Bond/Simcoe intersection, the last store on the left-hand side. To get to this glorious new food spot from the north location, it would be the 401 Simcoe south, and then a short walk from the bus stop. For those already downtown—save yourself the bus because it is just the walk! For those driving, it is on-street paid (until 6 p.m.) parking downtown. In case you didn’t want to do any commuting at all...they deliver!
