Bishop’s University School Song

 

Raise a toast to Bishop's University

On the mighty Massawippi shore!

We're conditioned to our fate,

We will never graduate,

We'll stay here forever more!

 

College days will linger ever in our hearts,

Wearing gowns, raising hell and quaffing ale!

And we'll show esprit de corps

As we watch the Gaiters roar

On to victory!

 

So raise your beer mugs,

And your little brown jugs

To Bishop's University!

I got the idea for this thread from Myles and I think we're gonna have a lot of fun seeing where people went to school.

My university was two hours away from montreal where I was growing up. It was my first school away from home and I loved the teeny tiny college town I think it was 2500 people at Bishops...crazy small huh

bishops3.jpg

It was in a rural farm area far away from the city and there was this tradition of goin around the town after we all got dunk and look for cows to "tip"

:rolleyes:

I was/am part of a frat, Beta Theta Pi, did my rounds of drinking, carousing, singing and vomitting, Ski'd almost every day and finished my honors degree in poli sci,

Good Years

Show us yer pics and tell us yer stories guys!

Personal development and well-being

How good is the overall personal development and well-being of the learners? 2

The extent of learners' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development 2

The behaviour of learners 2

The attendance of learners 3

How well learners enjoy their education 2

The extent to which learners adopt safe practices 2

Yeah.. Right...

 

 

P.S.S. We had little notices saying "Students throw themselves eagerly into school life" but everyone turned it into, students throw themselves eagerly off cliffs. because it ain't school no way :drinks:

I graduated from UCLA, University of California, Los Angeles. One of the best public university in the US. :drinks:

 

Go Bruin.

 

(I'm shamed to say that there is no bird-eye photo of UCLA at all, so I can only provide some snapshots :viking:)

Hmm, I'm currently doing my university studies at the Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies - Faculty of Cybernetics, Statistics and Economic Informatics

 

Here are 2 of the academy's buildings (the buildings are spread-out throughout the city so there is no campus to post a pic of it) as well as a map marking some of them.

cladireaasebucurestiae8.th.jpg asehr7.th.jpg ase2eu3.th.jpg

 

The academy has 9 in which classes are held plus a lot of of student dormitory buildings and administrative buildings. Also the academy is the largest in Romania in terms of the number of students and yearly applications. On the other hand my faculty is considered to be the hardest one in the academy (oh joy >_>).

 

We don't have a song as far as I'm aware, but if we did I probably wouldn't be interested in it anyway. :viking: Also we don't have fraternities here and if we did I wouldn't be part of one since I'm not living in a dormitory.

 

As for the part of drinking well, honestly I did my biggest share of that when I was in high school :D and I still prefer getting drunk with my old high school friends. :D

 

Actually here high school years are considered to be better than uni ones and are refered as the "wonder years" (rough translation :D). Also another saying goes that you won't realise that they are in fact the wonder years until you actually graduate high school and move on. Sadly it all turned out to be true in the end. :drinks:

 

Nevertheless uni is something new, something different and something equally exciting and interesting.

I can't find any pictures of my old school, but here's an obligatory wiki article. You can rest assured that it looks more like a prison than Gogo's did.

 

It would also be damn near impossible to get a picture of my university, because it's spread out all over Edinburgh. Here's one of our union buildings though. The oldest purpose-built student union building in the world.

One of the "Claremont Colleges" - Pomona is proably the most famous of the bunch.

I can't remember what was my first school....but beginning with the last year of kindergarten to first or second year of secondary I went to the French International School Victor Segalen (It used to have a shorter name before the takeover) which is an international school with two immersions (I was in the French one)

 

dustin6.jpg

dustin5.jpg

 

And then I moved to Montreal where I studied at the College Stanislas which is also a private French School

 

dustin.jpg

 

And then I went to Post secondary school where I practiced my English at Vanier College

 

dustin7.jpg

 

I moved on to McGill University because it's also in Montreal and I didn't need to pay that much of higher education :butcher:

 

dustin2.jpg

dustin3.jpg

 

and in August I will pursue my studies at Sherbrooke University which sadly locates "far"

Hope this answer to the question :P

It depends what you like. There are a lot of strange architecture and the opinions about it are very controversial. Here are some examples:

 

103-0308_IMG.JPG

This is one of the huge performance halls at MIT. (Kresge Auditorium)

 

103-0307_IMG.JPG

One of the dorms. (Simmons Hall)

 

big-stata1.jpg

Stata Center (Don'r worry you can't reconstruct it by only this picture)

 

And some normal ones:

That's the main building, so called the Dome.

Excellent snapshots. I must say I don't understand the architecture of the super modernize buildings.

 

The Dome is more the kind of building I get, and a lake right next to it! So dreamy, so romantic. :bow:

 

Ok don't mind me. (not that I would ever find myself in MIT anyway, I can't do math... :oooo:)

Holle cow, Dick, that's where you go to school?

:bow:

 

I love the archietecture! I also love the structure of old buildings as well, but these are so sweeping and clean.

 

It's great how everyone's schools are so different.

:oooo:

Our four-legged furry friend shows his roots at a grammar school...

Woot!

No wonder you talk so properly llama...or is that, perhaps, with the aid of spellcheck?
