College Royal is Back

….not as big as in years past but open non the less

In the past College Royal has attracted up to 30 000 visitors but in the last two years it was mostly virtual and this year it was limited to staff, students and family members. It was much smaller in size but we enjoyed our two days of exploring the campus, speaking to the exhibitors, learning new things, watching the dog show and walking through the barns.

If you had any doubts as to the what the University of Guelph is all about, College Royal highlighted the agricultural, veterinary and animal and food sciences. As a graduate of U of G I can tell you that there is much more to this university, i.e., Family and Child Studies, The Arts, Biomedical studies, Business and Economics, Athletics, Human Kinetics, etc.. Hopefully in future years College Royal will be back to hosting more clubs, more of the arts, fashion shows and will have more hands on activities and bring back the milkshakes.

Three Generations of Guelph students, past and present

College Royal and Tonguely

Tonguely’s been MIA for awhile on this blog

This weekend is the annual College Royal Open House at the University of Guelph. This is where my husband, Kevin and I first met. I was a student and he was visiting a friend who lived next door to me. We hooked up pretty quickly and he enrolled in the university the following semester. College Royal was always one of our favourite activities. We both belonged to a drama club, Curtain Call, that put on student written and produced shows every year during College Royal. Every year Collage Royal attracts about 30 000 visitors. https://www.collegeroyalsociety.com/

Now, as for Tonguely he seems to be missing. We’re pretty sure he wants to be there. Hope he’s not getting into any trouble.

Monday Windows and Thursday Doors – July 29, 2021

….thanks to Dan from No Facilities for hosting Thursday Doors and to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/07/26/monday-window-july-26-2021/

Last week Kevin and I took a trip to Guelph to give our granddaughters a tour of the university where we met and went to school. The girls will be going there in the fall. We had a great day and hope to make many more trips in the next few years.

I focused on the older buildings because they have so much more charm and character. The residences that were once all male or all female are now co-ed. The girls are actually in their second year so they didn’t qualify to live on campus because the residences are for first year students only. Last year all their classes were on-line so they studied from home.

Sculpture Saturday – July 24, 2021

thanks to SMKelly for hosting Sculpture Saturday https://nofixedplans5.wordpress.com/2021/07/24/sculpture-saturday-41/

Outside Creelman Hall at the University of Guelph. The university was originally an agricultural school and to this day it still offers courses in farming and animal husbandry. This metal sculpture of a tractor with a farmer in the driver’s seat is new to me and my husband. I studied Family Studies here and met Kevin some 48 years ago through a friend who lived next door to me.
