Secret Spots and First Impressions

Contest Entry: Lamrot Lulseged

August 28, 2012

We're sharing the contest entries from our Secret Spots & First Impressions grad student photo competition.

These photos are from Lamrot Lulseged, School for International Studies, who writes:

Photo 1 (above): "Group Project" taken near the Academic Quadrangle (AQ) on the Burnaby campus
I was on a self-guided tour when I came across it. It was a meaningful first impression, combining SFU Burnaby's renowned stone-and-concrete architecture together with the quintessential idea of a university as a "gathering place" for knowledge

Photo 2 (below): "Unwind" taken at Granville Island
I took this picture while sitting by the dock, trying to keep my french fries away from very adamant sea gulls. This would make a very nice "secret spot", to unwind and people-watch after strolling through the beautiful shops and grabbing a bite to eat.

Photo 3 (below): "To the Sky" taken near SFU Vancouver
Being a new graduate student at SFU Vancouver, it was definitely a big first impression to find my campus in the middle of towering glass and steel skyscrapers like this one. It makes going to "school" a wonderfully different experience
