Overheard on the Road: Wilfrid Laurier University

In a WLU tutorial, the TA (who is a candidate for his masters' degree in English) is explaining conventions of essay-writing.

TA: The difference between passive voice and active voice is like saying "She was thinking" instead of "She thought".

-- English tutorial, Wilfrid Laurier University, overheard by Caitlin

The Laurier School of Business and Economics is 10 times the business school that Ivey is.

Ivey individuals are generally arrogant and self entitled assholes with ZERO social skills.

Better school, better bars, nicer more down to earth people, fewer diseased whores, but just as many pretty ladies, fewer pairs of Uggs...yup, Laurier is the far superior school

What else?... Western copied the Waterbuffalos and Shinerama from Laurier, and the Stangs can't beat Laurier at football...How much does that suck Western can't even beat a "high school' football team.

Western licks more ass than 8:31

Fuck off and Die

3:18, have you ever even met an Ivey student? We're really not that bad, for the most part.

Unless you're talking about the HBAs.

3:49, you are wrong. You really ARE that bad.

I was going to write a rebuttal to 3:18 until you got into this thread. Stupid Ivey piece of vaginal discharge. Go act pretentious and arrogant somewhere else, jackass.

Also: What is a waterbuffalo?

To 7:00 pm,
Us other university kids get a kick out of some of the stupiest things this site had to offer. That's why... and for the football remark, Laurier lost most of its veteran players too... and still beat Western!

I'm guessing 7:15 and 3:18 are also members of the Ontario Universities against Western or whatever.
If you're that upset about us, why bother making up groups about us or posting on our websites? Why not just ignore us like we ignore you?
We are far too apathetic here to buy into that whole rivalry thing anyways. We are, after all, a university where nearly everyone pre-drinks and parties on homecoming, but very few actually watch the game. Whatever.

as if you are even comparing Laurier to Western .. SO what if your football team can beat ours .. At least we don't have to share a field.

7:00 if you looked at my name, it says former WLU and CURRENT UWO student. Moron.

9:22. Have you been to Phils? Phils rules. Club wise, The Rev dominates the Phoenix (worst club in history of the world) and Laurier has campus bars that people actually go to...Yay, let's go to the Jim Bobs and pick up an STD...

3:36 Sharing a field...Ohhhhhhh, you got me there...Good one...PHAG!!!

8:20, You are ghey. Gheyer than 8:31.

Uh... there isn't an 8:31 on this board. I dunno if it's some newfangled slang you crazy young'uns use for Ivey students, or commies, or [insert pointless, generic OAW point of debate here], but as far as I can see, 11:52/3:18, you're insulting a poster that doesn't exist. I'm not thrilled with the subpar bar scene around here either (unless live music is involved), but maybe all that Laurier's been rotting your brain.

I would just like to point out that, as far as I know, there is no "Overheard at Laurier" page. MProbably because one absurd quote from a Laurier TA just can't compare to the hilarity of the pages of quotes filled by Western students and Profs:)

11:52: are you under the impression that adding an "h" in "gay" and "fag" make you sound cooler/less like a douche?
It's really sad when people attempt to be P.C. WHILE concurrently insulting someone. Now I can't even respect your anger.
