Your University, One Photo at a Time

Summer 2010 Recap

The second year of Photos from Glasgow University has started, and with it came a few changes, such as larger photos, a simpler theme, and attempts to streamline the captions. Feedback on the changes and the new look would be much appreciated.

The poll for the last three months was a simple question: Where are you from? There were 65 answers, which were quite well spread out. Scotland, not too surprisingly, came out on top with 20 entries, followed by the United States (with 5), England and India (with 4), and Canada, Finland, Germany, and N. Ireland (with 3).

The only real surprises were that no one said Ireland or Wales, and I’ve never heard of a country called Marvelous.

Moving on, you might have noticed that there have been a few technical difficulties with posting photos on a daily basis. In other words, my laptop decided to go on strike, refusing to turn on, as well as being incredibly slow and lazy, taking about a day and a half to open even a single image file, having been getting progressively worse since February or March. Please bear with me while I claw through these temporary difficulties and get every the blog up to date and up to speed. Which I guess means I need a new laptop soon. Oh well.

The poll for the next two months is as follows:

What societies have you been a member of at Glasgow University?

The poll only includes a small sampling of different societies around campus, one per letter of the alphabet where possible. If there’s a society that you have been a member of that isn’t on the list, go right ahead and enter it in the Other section at the bottom of the poll. There’s no limit to how many societies you can enter, so go ahead and enter every single one that you’ve ever been a member of.

Below, as per usual, are the thumbnails from the past three months. Which one was your favourite? Least favourite?
