Celebrating the best of the University of the Fraser Valley
Skookum: good, best, ultimate, first rate. That's what UFV aims to be: the best undergraduate university in Canada, which is why we've named our university magazine with this strong word from the Chinook jargon, a trade dialect that was used as a cultural bridge among groups of aboriginal peoples and multi-ethnic newcomers to British Columbia.
