Your University, One Photo at a Time

August 2009 Recap []

The summer is over now (or will be tomorrow, depending on who you ask) and the 2009/2010 academic year is just weeks away. The first three months of this blog, the first 92 photos, have been posted, and the University of Glasgow has been introduced.

As September is just around the corner and I’m back in Glasgow now, I will begin posting fresh and current photos of the University and everything associated with it.

The month of September starts out slowly, as most first years don’t arrive until September 11th (when their student halls become available), and most of the other student aren’t coming back until the very last week before their lectures start on the 21st. On the 14th, all hell breaks loose on campus as Freshers’ Week kicks off. I’ll be wandering around campus with my camera all week to show you some of the action.

And finally, polls polls polls. Poll #4 asks: Which Student Union(s) do you belong to (or use to belong to)? You can find it on the right hand side of this blog from September 1st onwards. Below are the results of Poll #3: Which Academic Faculty do you belong to at Glasgow University? Interestingly every single Faculty was accounted for, with LBSS and Arts far in the lead. The “Other” answers were Ex Employee and Glasgow School of Art (GSA). You can see all the polls featured here on the Polls page. [Poll and results graphic below courtesy of]

August Poll Report

In relation to my Freshers’ Week postings, should I post a single picture per day, or a collage of several pictures. The one rule for this blog is that on ly one photo will be published per day, but that doesn’t mean that the photo can’t be comprised of more than one photo. So, what do you think, one photo or a collage, per day, on Freshers’ Week?
