11 Signs You Studied In Canada

It was a heady time, we can hardly blame you if you don’t remember all the details – the new experiences, strange accent, the milk in plastic bags. Going to university or college can be a very confusing experience. But not to worry, we’re here to help. Here’s our handy guide to finding out whether you went to Canada for university or college. Just watch for the signs!

  1. 1

    Your internal Tim Hortons GPS system

    You consider your morning routine incomplete without standing in a 10 minute queue for a double double from Timmy’s.

  2. 2

    You are no longer a surface-dweller

    You’ve spent days navigating the underground tunnels from the science lab to the classroom to the gym to the dorm, and it’s not because you lost your coat.

  3. 3

    Sorry about all this

    You know there’s no such thing as being too polite, #SorryReallySorry

  4. 4

    Snowmageddon, shnowmageddon

    You scoff at the British panic surrounding snow days. You eat snow for breakfast! (Not literally, aside from that one time during Winter Carnival).

  5. 5

    You talk real good now, eh?

    You parlez le Français tres bien, and understand the following statement: “Get a bunny hug and a toque you hoser, we’re going downtown for some poutine. Let’s really give’r this weekend, eh?” Congratulations, you’re multilingual!

  6. 6

    You know bright food is brain food

    You can make a different meal every day of the week using only Kraft Dinner, hotdogs, and fluorescent condiments.

  7. 7

    Making the most of Canada’s superior athletic facilities

    Bad news travels fast, but you know from experience nothing travels faster than a plastic cafeteria tray on a snowy hill.

  8. 8

    From the dormroom to the classroom

    Of course your college had an official uniform: Lululemon stretchy bottoms, and a flannel shirt or MEC fleece. No zippers or uncomfortable fabrics inhibiting your education!

  9. 9

    Embrace your inner lumberjack

    Your student scruff has turned into a playoff beard, and it is good.

  10. 10

    You’re obsessed with tinder

    It totally makes the best campfires, and your firestarting game is now unsurpassed.

  11. 11

    You’ve started a lifelong romance with the Great Outdoors

    From coast to coast to coast, your idea of spending a little time outside on the weekend has changed, because – Canada!
