Streeters: What’s your favourite place to cry on campus?

“Probably in the main quad, just in secrecy,” one student said

With a constant stream of midterms and projects happening at any time, studying at the University of Alberta can be tear-inducing, so The Gateway asked students what their favourite place to cry on campus is.

“My favourite place to cry is in the washroom I guess. And probably in the main quad; just in secrecy!”

“The only place that I have cried on campus so far is in ECHA, but I have cried there a number of times and so that was, I guess, my favourite place to cry. I was a student a month ago, that’s why I cried the last time”

“I really like crying in the St. Joseph’s Chapel. Nobody ever goes there!”

“My favourite place to cry on campus would be under the stairs in the basement of CCIS. Especially the lower floors. They are usually isolated, especially late at night. I haven’t cried there yet but it seems pretty isolated.”

“I don’t currently have a favourite place to cry. It’s at home.”

“I guess my favourite place on campus to cry is Rutherford South in the reading room. It’s just a nice environment I guess. It is a moody environment.”

“My favourite place to cry on campus would be in my car because it is sort of a semi-private space that you have on campus. And you can pretend that you are reading or something.”

“I like to cry in the Carlston Construction Quiet Lounge.”

“To cry? In the Students’ Union Building, right in the basement floor, with some couches in the back. There is a quiet room if you like.”


Leah Krandall — ALES II

“I don’t think there is anywhere on campus I would like to cry. Most places are pretty public.”
