Going to uOttawa really can be all fun and games - aside from the homework part, basically. We have an urban campus, an overflowing spotted page (that obviously does better than Carleton's), and 24/7 downtown access. Why wouldn't anyone go here?
But even though we can get pretty close, we're not perfect. Here are 11 mistakes all uOttawa students have made. Yes, including you.
1. Waiting till 10 minutes before class to get a drink at Starbucks.
You might as well forget about your coffee now. Your retirement will probably come before your turn in line does.
2. Telling yourself you'll just "print it off at DocU Centre".
Especially the morning your assignment is due. Not like 15 other people thought of the exact same thing. Love yourself and call in a favour from a friend.
3. Getting on the 95 and having to walk to DMS because you forgot it doesn't stop at Laurier.
Why is Cumberland even relevant?
4. Being lazy and not printing out stuff from Blackboard - Until it shuts down the night before your exam.
Pain is temporary. GPA is forever.
Why does it sound like the name of a small European country. It might as well be called Genovia.
6. Going to the 5th floor of Morisset to study.
"Study". I don't even have to explain why this is a regret.
7. Thinking you're hungry enough for the AYCE buffet at the Caf.
No, you really are hungry. I believe you.
8. Trying to convince yourself the Arts building doesn't smell that bad.
Just one more semester. You'll make it.
9. Making the epic journey from Laurier to SITE, only to find no tables to study at.
Should've gone home instead.
10. Checking Tinder on campus.
You'll definitely end up running into them somewhere. Abort Mission.
11. Going to the Panda Game as an optimist.
We'll get em next year. Hopefully.

"It's looking positive to be able to open schools towards the end of May if the rate of COVID continues to come down in our community."
Etches also mentioned that a regional approach might be the best option when it comes to reopening schools across the province.
"What am I encouraged by, is the conversations about being able to open schools is happening and that is something where I think the regional approach is a valid way to go," she stated. "That's the first step, we need to get schools open and then we need to take a look at other measures that could be relaxed."
According to police, Shanks "had previously engaged with the mother of the child on a social media chat group for new mothers and had brought a gift for the mother and newborn at her home" on Friday, just two days before the alleged abduction.
Shanks is said to have "forcefully entered" the Ottawa home using bear repellent spray and abducted the baby, however, neighbours intervened and were able to "detain" Shanks until police arrived.
The baby was given to Ottawa Paramedics and was unharmed, authorities state — investigators also believe Shanks "may have been in contact with other new mothers" in similar social media groups.
