The 9 things that might happen if you walk up all the stairs in Dunton Tower
Christine Lyons is a fourth-year English student.
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…
- 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.
- Take a selfie, post it to Facebook, and receive more likes than your most popular profile picture.
- As a new Carleton celebrity, people will fan you with palm leaves during the elevator ride back to the main floor.
- 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.
- Build such intense thigh muscles that no one will ever question whether you skipped leg day again.
- Or be in so much pain that you decide to never climb another stair again, and resort to somersaulting as a means of transportation.
- Take the elevator at the twelfth floor. Let’s face it: you won’t walk up all the stairs in Dunton Tower.
- Take the elevator, my friends. Just take the elevator.
- 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.
