… because shame leads to change

As part of our ongoing efforts to highlight the crumbling infrastructure at the University of Regina, the Carillon proudly presents the third part in our Leak of the Week feature, bringing you the vital stats on the different failing roofs around campus.

Location: You can find this trio of leaks in the lab building. You know – that big building that science students pay huge sums of money to use?

Leaking: Yes, yes, and yes.

Nickname(s): “The Three Amigos” “The Holy Trinity”

Apparatus: By using the sinks already pre-installed in the lab, the University is able to save tens of dollars on garbage cans while still ensuring that students attempting to use the lab are inconvenienced as much as possible.

Ceiling removed: Yes.

Mold/Mildew: Yes.

Number of people working on it: 0.

Number of science students inconvenienced: All of them.

Sterile: It’s probably fine.

Age: Undetermined. We tried to use a microscope to count the rings, but they were all too waterlogged.

Has it been fixed yet: No, no, and no.

Current status: Shameful, shameful, and shameful.

Impact on students: The lab is unusable. Totally unusable.

Student comment(s): “At least there’s no shortage of eye-wash stations…”

“Personally, I’m glad they’re prioritizing the work on the giant signs in front of campus instead of ensuring basic usability in the labs. We biology students agree that unchecked egoism is the secret ingredient to a top-notch educational environment.”

“I pay money to study here.”
