During the second semester of the 2013-2014 academic year, three students focused their projects on the Varsity View neighbourhood. Each project included a PowerPoint presentation and a poster. Jeremy Dela Cruz focused on discovering the different architectural styles found within the neighbourhood. Brittney Beckie created an historical inventory of the past commercial development in the neighbourhood, with a specific focus on the decades of 1920 to 1980. Megan Vandendreissche analyzed the relationship between the University of Saskatchewan and Varsity View, particularly emphasizing the cultural influence the university has on the community. Each project can be viewed in its entirety on this webpage.
