With Valentine’s Day upon us, U of A mascots Guba and Patches have undertaken the task to give a sneak peek about the most romantic places/things to do around campus.
The study lounge in Athabasca Hall is the place to be when hanging out with your significant other, drinking coffee, or just plain studying .
Check out the different exhibitions/art galleries/museums across campus as they not only prove to be great stress busters, but also provide another reason for you and your significant other to hold hands.
Also while we are at holding hands, according to Patches studying at the Harry Potter room in Rutherford makes for a great hand holding/studying space.
We all have days when all we want to do is lie down and stare at the stars… but given that it’s a little chilly outside, Guba recommends taking in the view of the solar system from the centre CCIS. (Just try to avoid being stepped on during class changes.)
While you are at CCIS checking out the solar system, Guba also recommends taking a trip to the Observatory on the 5th floor of the building for a view you wouldn’t find anywhere else on campus.
The 4th Floor of Natural Resources Engineering Facility (NREF) provides a beautiful view of west Edmonton – providing a perfect spot to end the day soaking in the warmth of a picturesque Edmonton sunset .

When I am not busy with engineering school, I love painting in abstracts. I am also a huge movie buff and will watch anything with zombies in it.
I would like to share stories that are personal and reflective of the great community we have built here at the U of A. My experience at the university so far has brought forward a tremendous amount of personal growth, and I can’t wait to help share the wonderful stories and student experiences of this amazing university.
