Porcelain Pilgrim: the library’s renovated washrooms

Ladies and gentlemen of Concordia University,

It has come to my attention that the third floor of the J.W. McConnell   Building is now newly renovated and open. This of course means there’s a new bathroom on campus and one that promises to be a pleasure to review!

After nodding in and out of consciousness through the majority of my 8:45 a.m. class, I tried to fight it, I really did. I made my way—now somewhat energized—to the third floor of the library. I couldn’t suppress a whispered “damn!” as I walked into the new section. A girl gave me a reproachful look but she shouldn’t flatter herself like that.

I made my way slowly, like a big tourist, around the new area before finally making my way to the washroom. Clean white doors. Nice. Sticky to the touch already. Not nice. Still, I had hope. As the door swung inwards I was met with a sterile looking washroom, painted white with fluorescent lights and a long sink with multiple taps. Pretty badass.

“Looking good!” I said to myself since no one was in there, another plus in my books. I looked in each of the three stalls. All clean, they all had hooks on the doors and they all had toilet paper! I chose the handicapped stall cause I like my space and I’m sitting here writing this as I hear people come in and out of the washroom now. I’m listening to someone use the hand dryer  and I’m afraid to say it doesn’t sound like one of those high-powered ones. We’ll find out in a few moments.

Woah, automatically flushing toilets too! Lord knows we need it here. The hand dryers looked like the old ones and I was initially disappointed, but it actually seems like they’ve upgraded and I dried my hands pretty quickly. It ain’t those high powered ones I love, but that’ll do, pig, that’ll do.

Nine out of 10 for this sweet new water closet and I would have been disappointed with anything less since it’s completely new. Good on ya, Concordia!
