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 was sitting the whole time.
I couldn't remember the words, but I tried.

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

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

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

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

How was the MuchMusic Video Dance Party?

I missed it because I thought it was on a different day.
I was too tired, so I just took a nap.
I busted out my finest moves.
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?

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

How did you keep track of the information overload?

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

Are you ready for your first year?

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