Your University, One Photo at a Time

January 2010 Recap & Poll Results []

80 fans on Facebook in a very short period of time, I’m pleasantly surprised.

Coming up with a relevant photo, as opposed to a simple touristy photo of the Cloisters or the University Tower every day, is harder than I presumed when starting this photoblog. As a full-time student I’m limited in terms of available time and where on campus I usually am, as evidenced by the fact that there are quite a few buildings on campus that I’ve yet to feature, simply because I don’t have a single photo of those buildings, or I haven’t even been in the buildings a single time yet, such as the Wolfson Building and the Davidson Building.

The blog’s about more than just the buildings of the University of Glasgow. It’s about the students and the events and especially the little personal touches and historical curiosities and odd little bits and pieces of the University. and as such I welcome and hope for photo suggestions and questions, either through Twitter, Facebook, email or as a simple comment on any post on this blog. If you know of any interesting little curiosities around campus, drop me a note or something.

January’s poll asked about your New Year’s Resolutions for 2010, listing the 10 most common resolutions. With most of the readers of the photoblog being students, it’s no surprise what the most common resolution was:

There were 33 responses in total, with the two most common resolutions were to Study Harder and Lose Weight/Get Into Shape. I’m surprised at how low Quit Smoking was in the results. Oh, and that one ‘Other answer…’ response? World Domination. Obviously.

February’s poll goes back to basics, focusing on a part of the University: What is the best source of food on campus? The poll is on the right hand side of this blog.
