An interview with Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe, queen of the basketball courts

“I actually haven’t graduated yet!” Those might sound like strange words to hear from a former student of SFU, but Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe has a pretty good reason for having not completed her university studies. Namely, she is a rising star in an exciting new era for Canadian women’s basketball. Raincock-Ekunwe arrived at SFU back in […]

No SFU event would be complete without the presence of a piper. The SFU Pipe Band’s roots are deeply intertwined with the university, and their reputation is internationally renowned. But here at SFU, students sometimes are unaware that they are in the midst of true musical brilliance. A peek back in time As The Tartan […]
