Sometimes after you’ve been in a certain place long enough, it can start to take on a personality of its own. Since each of UTM’s buildings has a distinct style and character, here’s a look at what UTM’s buildings might be like if they were students.
DAVIS (South): The Seasoned Sixth-Year
Davis is a little old-school, but he’s allowed to be because he’s finishing off a sixth year at UTM. I imagine he likes to watch black and white movies and enjoys a good bag of trail mix. He also loves to use the “back in my day phrase” to bring up his pioneer days of dial-up Internet and Hanson. Davis’ secret fears include creepy basements, empty hallways, and tiny desks.
DEERFIELD: The Peppy First-Year
I imagine Deerfield as a bright and peppy first-year. She’s got a huge backpack on that she wears high up on her back. Her favourite outfit is her knit rainbow sweater paired with her classic polka-dotted rain boots. Deerfield’s favourite place to shop is Whole Foods since she only eats organic food, and of course she’s a devout animal lover. Nothing can ruin Deerfield’s day—she is forever calm and optimistic.
CCT: The High-Tech Student
CCT is definitely a futuristic student. He owns an Apple Watch, along with all the associated Apple paraphernalia, and even works at the Apple store on weekends. He’s also an avid fan of modern art, and has an ultra-minimalistic style consisting of a closet filled with the same outfit hung on every hanger, like a cartoon character.
HMALC: The English Major
HMALC is the student that lives and breathes literature. Her home even has a library with one of those sliding ladders. She loves a good pair of overalls and a nice cup of tea to go along with her most favourite books.
KANEFF: The Savvy Business Student
If Kaneff were a student, she would be the kind that always dresses business casual. In fact, she doesn’t own a single pair of sweatpants. She also always has her Bluetooth attached to her ear to never miss a call regarding the side business she started in her basement when she was 10. You’ll never find Kaneff without a stack of personalized business cards on her. And don’t get me started on her killer handshake.
