Lucia returned to Ottawa on Saturday September 1st. The remaining days leading up to orientation were busy: unpacking and grocery shopping consumed a lot of time. The two day orientation event was great fun, but soon it was time to get down to business and hit the books!
Classes started on Wednesday September 5th. Since then, I have taken advantage of the few warm and sunny days we have had in St. John's. So, digital camera in hand, I went on a photo walk of MUN so that everyone at home could take a virtual tour of the campus. Enjoy!
Welcome to Memorial University of Newfoundland! Become...
Burtons Pond residence, my new home for the next year.
Another view of Burtons Pond and the many ducks who call it home.
Looking across Burtons Pond towards Paton College residence.
Paton College, Hatcher Square, and the Gushue dining hall. Sweep! Hard!
Walking across campus.
Arts and administration building.
Mathematics building and garden.
Inco Innovation Centre - where a lot of innovating things happen!
The Memorial clock tower - great for when you do not have a watch!
Now, which way was it to orientation?
This is a MUNnel (MUN + tunnel = MUNnel). Clever!
The view from the Marine Institute can be very distracting while in class!
