When we're alone and caught up in our own thoughts, it's amazing what we realize. Algonquin College is a pretty big school, with lots of different buildings but is also extremely confusing even for someone who was been there a few years. What's the difference between A & B building? Why does it look like a giant high school in some areas? These are questions we'll probably never have answers to.
Algonquin College is a great school, but like everything else, we notice a lot of it's flaws especially when we're taking that long trek to our class every single day. Honestly, that walk from Baseline or the parking lot should be considered our daily cardio. We all have our pet peeves about different things, but I'm sure we can agree on a few about Algonquin. So here are 56 thoughts you've probably had while walking through the Algonquin College campus.
