Back on Campus
This is where I spent most of my time, in the Film Studies department at the Film House. I worked on the main floor of the building on the right in the administrative office, I had classes on the left side, talked to profs in their offices on the second floor (caught some zzz's in the lounge area there) and then edited films on the third floor.
This is the oldest building on campus, Summerhill and at one point the villa housed the entire university in the mid-1800s. Now it serves as the official residence of the Principal and as a location for hosting special guests and official dinners. As a mere student I only ever got to sit under the trees on the lawn and read.
Now they have just built the new Queen's center and to me it stands out like a sore thumb. Don't get me wrong, I like modern buildings too, but I love the old feel to this campus and I don't want to see that go away.
Thanks for joining me on my little walk down memory lane. I'm heading back there for a reunion next month and I can't wait to see the campus in all its spring garden glory.
