Great to see pics of Bishop's! I think it is a beautiful small campus situated in a very scenic part of Canada. The country club of Canadian universities!

I'm pretty sure Queen's also made some sort of contribution, can't remember what is was off the top of my head right now.

Birthplace of football right here.

I've never understood why people protect easily reproducible photos of fairly well-traveled places with copyright watermarks. So goddamn annoying! I'll probably take an afternoon this week and snap a few photos of my own, although the campus has been looking pretty depressing for most of November.

When I get back on campus in January I'll do a run of the Waterloo campus.

It looks best in the summer, but it doesn't look bad in the winter either. Though compared to a bunch of the universities so far it will be ugly as sin.

I just realized that I do actually have some photos of my university, from way back in first year. I present to you, Simon Fraser University:











the view towards indian arm


lawl








On a nice day it's one of the best places around. On a foggy day it's creepy as hell. On a rainy day it's supremely depressing.


So much concrete

I do it on any photo I post on the internet. As I said at the beginning there with the UWindsor picture, people have stolen my images constantly over the years and I just got tired of it.

Hmmm... didn't realize they were yours.

Well, this is awkward.

Winterloo does get pretty brutal during the winter months, but grew to love it. Always used to go play shinny (or "puck" as we called it) at Waterloo Town Square on King Street at night.

The new UW additions have greatly enhanced the campus, especially the Nano-Tech building.

St. Francis Xavier University

Hi guys, here are some pictures I took on the campus of St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia.



Xavier Hall, the oldest building at St.F.X.



University Chapel.





Coady International Institute at StFX University, built/renovated in 2009.



Physical Sciences Centre, built 2004.



MacKinnon Hall, built in 1953.



Governors Hall, built 2006.

And the remaining pictures are from St. Francis Xavier's official photographer.



Gerald Schwartz School of Business, built 2011.



Aerial of the campus, summer 2011.

That is part of the Edmonton Clinic Project.

The teaching and office section of the U of A Hospital and Med School. Check the Edmonton Section Images for some better ones from Bulliver

Laval University (situated in Quebec City, not Laval!!!) is currently gathering information from students as to how it can ameliorate the physical aspect of its campus in Sainte-Foy. This process has happened several times in the past but nothing has come of it. Let's hope things will change this time around. Of course, the surface parkings lot are the main obstacle... Here's the campus right now:
