The 9 things that might happen if you walk up all the stairs in Dunton Tower

We’ve all been there. We’ve had six minutes to get to a class at the top of Dunton Tower and have considered the speed of the elevators. Do I climb or should I be three minutes late? Well, here are nine things you might expect to happen should you choose to climb…

  1. Take a nap in corner of the stairwell, where no one will ever find you because you’re on the twenty-second floor of Dunton Tower.
  2. Take a selfie, post it to Facebook, and receive more likes than your most popular profile picture.
  3. As a new Carleton celebrity, people will fan you with palm leaves during the elevator ride back to the main floor.
  4. The only problem: no one will believe your story. Your fame will be short-lived, the palm leaves will wither and you will deactivate your Facebook as part of the let down.
  5. Build such intense thigh muscles that no one will ever question whether you skipped leg day again.
  6. Or be in so much pain that you decide to never climb another stair again, and resort to somersaulting as a means of transportation.
  7. Take the elevator at the twelfth floor. Let’s face it: you won’t walk up all the stairs in Dunton Tower.
  8. Take the elevator, my friends. Just take the elevator.
  9. When you do reach the top of Dunton Tower, you can look out the window and see that Carleton actually has a very beautiful campus.
