A tale of two univercities
by jemma margaret
When I settled into my office at Simon Fraser University, I was quite confident there couldn’t be an uglier school with a better view.
I was pleasantly (?) surprised to learn this might not be the case. My new campus at l’Université Pierre et Marie Curie, is a close contender–that is, from the fifth floor where my office is located. I don’t yet have a camera, but I can assure you that all of Paris is quite visible.
Unfortunately, my office faces out over campus. Even worse, my desk faces one of the office’s walls. But on my
rare very frequent toilet breaks, I pause to survey the city below and wonder, what kinds of assholes design universities.
