University of Building Construction?

Recommended Posts

Are the construction noises on campus bad at all?

 

Two new construction projects are set to commence right beside the law building - St Andrew's Rental to the east, and Law Hub residence to the south. Sure, they'll be great additions for the UBC Class of '18, but until then...

No it is not bad, unless you are in the building they are doing construction on. I am a 5th year commerce student here, and there have been a few times where you couldn't even hear the prof speaking.

The construction has only been disruptive when they were digging/drilling/smashing the ground right outside the windows on the one side. It's only on one side of the building, though, and has ever affected the three classrooms on that side. I haven't had a problem in any of the others.

That's good to hear.

You occasionally get distracting construction noise in the classrooms, but it's the exception and not the rule. As for the library, where many of us do most of our studying (the new lawbrary is fucking awesome), other than occasional work WITHIN the library you can barely hear the construction noise.

 

Much more distracting are the rather frequent tours conducted through the new building for all the donors.

    • Isn't there also that satellite New York firm in Toronto that pays on the New York scale?   which would make the claim patently false
    • You didn’t make the wrong choice by selecting Osgoode. I absolutely loved my time there and I think you will too. The beauty about going to a larger school is that you’re bound to find a group of people you click with - even if they aren’t in your section. I found 95% of the people there to be very collegial. No one is going to be ripping pages out of books or trying to sabotage you. I won’t sugar coat it - 1L is stressful. Being graded on a curve against other highly capable students is stressful. Learning a new subject area is stressful. The pressure to get a “summer job” will be stressful. These things are not exclusive to osgoode and the stress won’t be exclusive to you. Everyone will be going through it at the same time and you’ll find people you can lean on. The upper years will be a particularly valuable resource for helping you manage your stress.  There is no point in fretting about September (August in your case). It’s will be a bit stressful but certainly nothing you can’t handle. 
    • This could stretch through first week of Sept.
