A roof by any other name

Do you really want people choosing the names for these residences?

Authors: The Staff, For Better and Worse

The University of Regina has recently announced that it will have a naming contest for its new residences. We here at the Carillon won’t be around to actually see these erected. However, we still wish to contribute our rapier wits and our sophisticated humour to this enterprise. Therefore, as a parting gift to our alma mater, we give the University our entries for the new residence’s name. Enjoy, and farewell!
