Cornett Memories

A memory can be shared as a photograph, a story, a poem, a limerick, or a video. Do you have an entertaining memory of your undergrad years in Cornett? Are you a faculty member with a story about teaching in the Cornett?

Staircase to nowhere
Submitted by Meaghan Jantzi on Monday, October 25, 2010

During my first year at UVic I had the misfortune of having a Poli Sci Tutorial in room 338B which is absolutely nowhere near room 338, 338A or 338C and requires a scavenger hunt dictated by chalk arrows drawn on the brick walls in order to find it.

One morning as I was running late I decided to be slightly adventurous and try a more easily accessible staircase than the one I normally took only to be met at the third floor by a solid brick wall!

I was never able to find this staircase again, and after a couple of years I started to convince myself that maybe I had imagined the whole thing until one day a good friend of mine came running up to me saying "you'll never guess what just happened to me in Cornett!"
