What kind of first-year student are you?

By Frankie Hart, September 14 2017 —

This year’s Orientation Week welcomed thousands of first-year students to campus. The event is a University of Calgary tradition that prepares new students for campus life. Based on your decisions throughout O-Week, how have you started off your first year at the U of C?


How much enthusiasm did you put into performing your faculty chant?

I was too busy covering my ears to chant.
My throat will never be the same.
I couldn't remember the words, but I tried.
I was sitting the whole time.

What did you submit during the TopHat demonstration during a breakout session?

I couldn't figure out how to use it.
Nothing. I didn’t want others seeing my answer.
A hella dank meme.
An extremely normal answer.

What kind of booth did you hit up first at Campus Expo?

What’s Campus Expo?
Whichever looked the most interesting.
Whichever looked the most helpful.
Whichever looked like it had the most free stuff.

How was the MuchMusic Video Dance Party?

I busted out my finest moves.
I was too tired, so I just took a nap.
I missed it because I thought it was on a different day.
I didn't go. Social interaction scares me.

What did you do at the UCalgaryStrong Carnival?

I got more free stuff!
I wandered around, mostly.
I just played with the parachute — I still don't know what the point of that was.
Pretty much everything.

What was your favourite part of O-Week?

Having the Orientation Leaders help me find my classes.
Figuring out what everything is.
Either the free notebook or the free candy.
The department- and faculty-specific events.

How did you keep track of the information overload?

I took notes.
I'm good.
I took pictures for reference.
I think I'll be able to remember it.

Are you ready for your first year?

I think so — I already have all my textbooks.
Please help me.
Yup — that's totally the thing that I'm doing that I am also ready for.
I'm sure I'll find someone with the same schedule that I can follow.
