For a lot of us, the University of Regina brings back a lot of fond memories. Memories of eating Kraft Dinner for 3 months straight to afford our rent, getting intoxicated at The Owl and coming home with only one shoe, or simply busting our asses well into the early hours of the morning just to pass that final we started studying for 24hrs prior to writing it.\nIn the end, it seemed like a blur in time, a 4-year stint of pretending to know what we were actually doing or what we would become, but out of all the sleepless nights and relentless studying sessions, it was totally worth it all.\nWell, most of it anyways. There are likely a few things that we'd all rather not experience ever again like the parking wars of the kin lot, sprinting across campus to make it to class, and spending an hour trying to find a decently quiet study spot.\nIn the true spirit of reminiscing, let's take things a little further down memory lane. Here are a few surefire signs you went to the U of R:\nWe're probably the only university on the planet that has spent a cool $1M on a sign\nHellooo, we have a bit of a parking crisis that desperately needs an upgrade.\nYou feel like you spent the majority of your 1st year being lost\nWait, was it CL 136 or CL 163?\nYou had to get a parking pass a semester in advance to avoid being on the never ending waitlist or not getting one at all\nYa snooze, ya lose.\nYou were frequently 15 minutes late for PSYC 101 or any class really, because you couldn't find parking\nRealistically, 25 minutes late because you had to walk there too.\nOn super cold days, you'd circle the parking lot in front of the Kin building multiple times in hopes of snagging a spot\nIt's called spot stalking, we've all been there.\nBy your 4th year, you weren't even phased if you got a parking ticket daily by Parking Services\nThey're basically just collectible souvenirs now.\nYou spent all your lunch money on Henderson's cheese bun sandwiches\nThat shit changed my life.\nYou've literally had to sprint to your classes from the Ed building to the Classroom building\nEducation and involuntary cardio workouts, thanks, Uni.\nYou know that The Green refers to the gigantic patch of grass located directly in the middle of campus\nShoutout to captain obvious for naming that one.\nThe Green is also known as the ultimate shortcut to get to almost every building\nUnless it's covered in 2 feet of snow, then it's more of a slow cut.\nYou know that the Engineering and Business faculties throw the best parties\nMostly because we always had free kegs.\nIf you studied business, you know that JDC West is like the holy grail of business clubs\nIt's one of those things you never understand until you get involved in it.\nYou made it your personal mission to find secret study spots that few people knew about\nHint: 5th-floor AdHum building\nYou know how creepy the university gets when you stay late to study after hours\nIt kinda feels like an educational jail of sorts.\nYou've had a sleepover in one of the study rooms on the 5th floor of the Ed building\nIt was the only way to make sure no one was going to steal it from you.\nIf you had lunch at The Owl, you'd find yourself going to class a bit tipsy afterward\nYou could never say no to lunch beers.\nThe Owl is home to a few too many drunken nights you can't remember\nYour entire first year of university in a nutshell.\nYou have probably used the couches at The Owl as a place to nap or drunkenly pass out on\nThere was just something so comfy and inviting about them, especially after 10 vodka specials.\nYou attempted to reenact Misson Impossible to get into the North and South residence towers for parties\nIt was as if your social status depended on it.\nWalking through the language building made you feel like you were in a foreign country\nIt was like a giant sound cloud of English, French, and Mandarin happening all at once.\nThe Riddell Centre was the communal watering hole that everyone gathers around\nHow about that mediocre food court, though?\nYou know that the Ridell Centre is the best place to raid a bake sale\n$5 brownies from the Sociology kids? Heck yes!\nThe university gym was home to a lot of sleeveless shirts, rank aromas of B.O in the air, and muscly dudes that would shred for hours\nAnd by shred for hours, I mean to waste time and creep on girls.\nIf you ran the track at the gym, you always had to keep your head up for slowing moving seniors hanging out at the Paul Schwann Centre\nOr that odd time someone was running the wrong way.\nYou know that the RIC building is like the Ritz Carlton of campus\nYou didn't even have class there, you just went for the ambiance.\nYou could always pick out the students living in residence because they wear flip flops in the winter\nLiving that "the school is also my home" life\nYou were constantly annoyed by slow walkers who traveled in packs\nThey really should make individual lanes for slow walkers and fast walkers.\nIf you were in fine arts, you know all about the secret rooms in the basement of the Ridell Centre\nIt's like the gateway to Narnia down there.\nYou could always spot a kin student because they were always decked out in UofR sweatsuit gear\nAll day, errrday.\nYou know that the campus library is treated as a temple of silence\nIf you attempt to eat anything with a noisy wrapper, you will be shunned.\nYou'll eventually realize you can't go anywhere on campus without running into someone you know\nBut you're always in a hurry to get to class so it's usually an awkward, "Hi! Bye!"
