But first, let me take selfie…

So it’s 2016 and the world is filled with selfie sticks, go pros, polaroid cameras, and phones with exceptionally good cameras. There’s Snapchat and Instagram to solely capture the moments you are feeling photogenic and like a pro photographer. All you really require is a good backdrop! Well, you’ve come to the right place! StFX campus is crawling with unofficial photo booths, great for taking selfies or group shots with your new BFFs. We’re here this week to let you in on all the great photo spots so you and your selfie stick are ready to go as soon as you get here!

Smile, You’re At X – This is probably the first thought of picture spot on campus! Our classic phrase is painted on a wall outside across from the turf and allows for much creativity! This has been a traditional photo spot for decades – ask your older family members who went here, they might even have a matching photo

Ah… I Work Out

I don’t know much, but I do know something. And no, it’s not that I love you, despite what the 1980s song we are all too young to know suggests.(For reference:

I know that:

  1. Over 1000 new students (maybe you?) will be moving into StFX in September; that
  2. As a student, you may have never seen or experienced campus life before; and that
  3. Some of you will want to know where you can go to get in a good workout.

I may not be the most athletic— or athletic at all really— but I DO know some of tips and tricks for working out around campus.

Want to ensure you have tickets to all the hottest events this frosh week? Looking for some sweet StFX swag to rock for the rest of your life? Look no further!

These kits have everything you could possibly want or need, including Orientation Week bracelets, tickets to all the ticketed events (some events are for first years only and therefore don’t require a ticket), plus TONS of X-swag that you’ll want to be all decked out for Homecoming, football games, and other X events!

Although it is possible to buy tickets for the events if you don’t buy a frosh kit, you run the risk of them selling out, and they generally run at around $10-15 each, so it is more economical to buy them in the kit. Furthermore, this way you get all the extras that aren’t given out anywhere else.

Meal Hall Hacks

Morrison Hall, otherwise known as Meal Hall, is where you will bond with your new friends during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Meal Hall serves 19 meals per week: breakfast, lunch, and supper Monday-Friday and brunch and supper on Saturday and Sunday. Your meal plan determines how often you are permitted into meal hall per week, month, or for the entire year (depending on your meal plan). Meal Hall is closest to Cameron and MacKinnon Hall, as well as Schwartz and the Library. Meal Hall hours vary depending on the day of the week and time of the year (for example, during exams). The hours of operation can be found online!

Now let’s talk about FOOD. Yum. Meal Hall at StFX has such a wide variety of food options to fit every need. There are vegetarian options, gluten free options, and dairy-free milk. There are options to pick a classic lunch/supper option (rice, potatoes, meat, veggies) or you can create your own meals! Making your own creations will come in handy at times when you feel like switching it up from your normal go-to. That’s where we come in. We are going to let you in on some amazing tips to spice it up!
