What is your name, and when were you a CA?
Blake McStravick. I was a CA in 2013.
How has the ELC changed most since you were here?
I was a CA pre-building expansion, so that was the biggest change.
What is your favourite CA tradition?
Games in the CA room.
What is your favourite sociocultural activity?
I loved the Vancouver trips.
What is your favourite ELC program or CA role?
I did Program 5 as alt-CCA, so that was my fave.
Who was your most memorable teacher, CCA, or other ELC mentor, and how did they influence you?
I really enjoyed working with Kathleen Terrio. So nice!
What is your number one favourite memory from your time at the ELC?
Meeting my wife, Ginger!
What are you doing now?
I work in University Systems - Desktop Support Services. I never left campus!
Do you still keep in touch with any other CAs or past ELC students?
I married one, so we talk pretty often. I say hi to many former CA's that I see around town.
Have you ever visited any past ELC students in their home country?
How did being a CA affect your life?
Immensely! As I mentioned, Ginger and I got married, and we are now parents too! Our little CA baby, Felix, was born December 13th, 2019. The CA job was also a springboard to my career on campus.
