9 things you’re likely to see when you’re on campus

We have a beautiful and distinct campus and once you’ve been here for a week or two you’ll start seeing the same things over and over. What are those things?

  1. Snow. You know we’re in Ottawa, right?

  2. Groundhogs. For those few months when there isn’t snow on campus, we have an abundance of plump, jolly groundhogs burrowing their way into our school.

  3. Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons.
    There are five of them on campus, after all.
  4. Dancing. For sudden moments of dancing inspiration, head to the atrium – there’s guaranteed to be multiple boom boxes and dance routines.
  5. Tunnel carts. They’ll leave you in their tunnel dust on your way to an 8:35 class.

  6. Sprints for the O-Train. It should be an Olympic sport to chase the train as soon as it chimes.

  7. Sprints toward athletics. These aren’t gym enthusiasts, but students who miss the bus on Campus Avenue and run to Athletics to catch it.  High five for resourcefulness.
  8. Basketball. A slam dunk happens on campus every thirty-three seconds. Seriously. We’re really good at basketball.

  9. Someone you know. Because as big as Carleton campus is, you’re always going to run into a friendly face on your way around.
