Nice to see photos of Concordia, but you're not giving your school a very good reputation by using working class broken English. I'm assuming that it was a momentary lapse or a case of a francophone picking up English from illiterate anglophones?

Dalhousie University
Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA


Dalhousie is Canada's 5th oldest university and one of the most prestigious schools in the country. Dalhousie is known for its graduate programs and has the oldest student population in Canada due to the number of people who flock here to do their Master's or Doctorate's. Dalhousie Law School is considered one of the best in the country.

This is a very serious school. Among universities in America, only Harvard, Yale, Princeton, McGill and the University of Toronto boast more Rhodes Scholars than Dalhousie.

Dalhousie College was a non-denominational university founded by General George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie, the Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia. Using money acquired from the duties collected during the occupation of parts of Maine in the War of 1812, Ramsay established Dalhousie as a college open to all people regardless of class or creed. At the laying of the cornerstone on May 22, 1820, Lord Dalhousie said that this University was "founded on the principles of religious tolerance." Dalhousie remained one of only three universities founded on secular constitutional premises until as late as the 1950s.

Dalhousie University has been a leader in many respects. The Faculty of Dentistry was Canada's first. Dalhousie's campus newspaper was founded in 1868, making it the oldest student newspaper in Canada and one of the oldest continuously-running student newspapers in America.

Are you trying to be ironic by using broken English in a thread about universities?

I don't come here to make grammatically-detailed posts as if it was a formal essay, and if you do, then you need to get a life! And if you have troubles comprehending my broken english, then step aside.

Grammatically detailed? It's either correct or it's not. If you're comfortable presenting yourself as illiterate, be my guest. Why anyone would want to is beyond me. I guess you weren't making a clever joke after all. Oh dear!

University of King's College
Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA

The University of King's College claims to be Canada's oldest chartered university. It was founded with a strong religious affiliation and was generally modeled on older English universities which were residential, tutorial and Anglican. The University of New Brunswick was founded 4 years before King's, but did not receive its Royal Charter until 1827. Whatever! UNB is older. "The King's Quad". I'm not sure why it's called that.


King's is considered a very snooty school. It has the reputation as an institution where the rich send their kids who don't really require a paying job upon graduation. I don't know how much truth there is to this, but it's certainly a school of pedigree, gorgeous student dormitories and dining halls, and of course, steeped in tradition.

King's best known program is the Foundation Year Programme (FYP) for first year students, an intensive survey course on the history of western philosophy.


The University of King's College was founded by a group of United Empire Loyalists fleeing the American Revolution. King's was originally built in Windsor, Nova Scotia, but moved to its present location after it burned to the ground. King's student dormitories on the right and I believe a gymnasium on the left.


After the fire, the Carnegie Foundation offered King's money to rebuild, on the condition that they surrender their independence and enter into an affiliation with Dalhousie University. This is how King's ended up situated where it is. King's is now affiliated with Dalhousie, but fights complete amalgamation vigorously. Here's the King's flag.


When World War II broke out, King's was requisitioned by the military for the training of naval officers. King's functioned as a "stone frigate", providing a facility for navigation training before officers were sent to their ships. Another shot of the main building.


King's is a liberal arts university. Enrollment is 1100. Their motto is Deo Legi Regi Gregi, or For God, Law, King, People.


This is the King's Library. It's a relatively new structure, but they made an attempt to compliment the rest of the campus.

Grammatically-detailed! I don't care if it is correct or not; like I said, I don't give a f*ck if my sentences have mistakes when I type on a forum. The fact of the matter is that most people on the internet, when writing informally, really don't give a rats ass about grammar and broken english, because their audience are intelligent enough to understand despite the presence of mistakes. If you cannot, then that is your problem. And yeah, I'll be an illiterate, and why you care is beyond me. Now run along!

I do appreciate your observations, my English is not my strongest point. Don't worry though, I have my close friends in Philosophy and English Literature helping me with it!

Hopefully by the time I graduate, I should be able to have adequate English for an Engineer. We do have a reputation for having poor communication skills.

I also would like to make another point/comment. I hope you are not making a link between grammar/university or university/intelligence. One can have any one of them without the other.
