Which places on campus do you usually hang out?

As students, we all have some places on campus that we visit more often. They might not be the most well-known or have the most iconic views, but they’re meaningful to us. And guess what, the University of Guelph-Humber and Humber College are brimming with them.

That’s why we’ve asked students to tell us their on-campus spots that bring them joy. Here’s what they shared!

Alankrit Sachdeva, a first-year financial planning student, mentioned that his favourite place to visit on campus is the fitness center.

“When I come to the gym, it helps me feel relieved. I also get to meet some of my friends there and we discuss workout tips, et cetera.”

Annie Tieu, who is currently in her third year of the bachelors of creative advertising program, enjoys going to the study lounge at North Campus L Building.

“I love the amount of sunlight here. It makes me feel peaceful. It’s also quiet since everyone is busy doing their work.”

When it comes to hangout spots, Priya Puran and Tenisha Noel, both fourth-year justice studies students, choose the Barret Centre for Technology Innovation (BCTI).

“I think people overlook the Barret Centre. At BCTI, the surroundings are spacious. Because there are not so many people here, you can focus and get your work done,” Noel said.

“For me, I just simply like to hang out there,” Puran laughed.

“At the IGNITE Student Centre, you can find a variety of food from Pizza Pizza to Teriyaki bowl. Furthermore, that is where I meet up with my friends.”
