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.
I couldn't remember the words, but I tried.
My throat will never be the same.
I was sitting the whole time.

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

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

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

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

How was the MuchMusic Video Dance Party?

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

What did you do at the UCalgaryStrong Carnival?

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

What was your favourite part of O-Week?

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

How did you keep track of the information overload?

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

Are you ready for your first year?

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