The University of Sherbrooke's tallest building would also be Sherbrooke's tallest... if it wasn't located in Longueuil.


By Gilles Renaud

Here is the main campus (in Sherbrooke). The picture is from 1978, but it hasn't changed much since then.

Here's another good shot.

It's definitely a mix of old and new. Another issue is that the campus is quite large. A good half of it could be mistaken for part of the city when in fact they are university buildings. All those detached 1900s houses, for instance. I do think Dal is still in the process of filling in and the whole thing will feel more unified over time.

That said, Dal definitely has an air of establishment to it. You get the same feeling when you're at McGill or Western. Schools like Ryerson and Concordia don't have that.

A huge addition that every city should have emulated when all these institutions were created. Unfortunately the nature of these institutions and their longevity means that even the youngest of them were started well before ideas like this were considered.
There's a lot to be said for small college towns. Schools smack dab in the middle of big cities often get lost in the immensity of their surroundings. Sure they're good for the cities in which they're located, but from a student pov I'd much rather be at some place like Acadia or St. FX.

In these tiny college towns, you get the full university experience. There are no outside distractions and cultural life is focused on campus. It creates tremendous school spirit, participation, and you feel connected to your school in a far more intimate way. 5100 people showed up at the St. FX - Acadia football game 2 days ago and 5158 students go to St. FX. So basically the whole school showed up. Nothing like it exists at big schools in big cities.

Schools like Western and Dal are in this weird space. Not quite a big city, but not a small college town either. I still think it's a better student experience than one gets at places like the U of T or Concordia. Student cultural life is almost non existent by comparison.

Here's a great shot of McGill and Molson Stadium. Go Redmen!

Queen's University, Kingston:
(Credit for all: Queen's Yearbook and Design Services)





Closeups showing limestone cladding. Almost all buildings at Queen's are cladded in limestone, even the new ones (the building on the left in the second picture was built in the 1990s).




This one is my favourite from a context perspective. It shows how Queen's is located in a central urban setting yet still outside the CBD (Queen's is in the lower left, downtown in the centre-right)

Great Queens pics.

****

What's that UofW (or it could be UofM) Red River something building, with the preserved historic facades and a modern building incorporated into it. That one looks awesome.

p.s. are these the Redmen or the Als playing down there? If it's the Redmen then it's quite a substantial crowd.

UofM reminds me so much of Towers Corporate Campus (formerly a college for girls) here.



I wish ours was that grand, or that Memorial had something similar. I hate that it's as ugly as it is.

I LOVE how the stadium is integrated directly into the immediate area, connected to certain buildings and looking right at home next to others!

UofM is freaking sweet. Definitely my favorite, though UofT has some pretty interesting buildings that I've crept around in. Never been a fan of my home town university (McMaster). It has always felt sterile, small and a lot more modern than the ones in bigger cities. I suppose that's because it only moved to Hamilton 80 years ago.

Your right, it's the Red River College - Downtown Campus


cbc.ca

mhs.mb.ca

Then there is the Red River Paterson GlobalFoods Institute, part of the campus across the street

That's Boston-quality heritage restoration/rehabilitation right there. I'd kill for those two buildings here, just as they are. They'd easily be my favourites in St. John's.

St John's would an ideal location for both. The restoration work on the facade of the main campus though would fit like a glove. It's actually reminds me of many of the pictures you post, vivid, bold colors.
