Here at the University of Manitoba, we like to toot our own horn. Our university may not be highly ranked, but we have so much to be thrilled with. The satisfaction kicks in as you drive down Chancellor Matheson Road, which provides a glimpse of the Fort Garry campus’s rich architectural history. That includes the iconic 1912 Administration Building, which, like several others on campus, has an awe-inspiring design. It was one of the first buildings constructed when the university replaced the Manitoba Agricultural College at the Fort Garry site. Beside it is the University Centre—the campus hub. It houses the glitzy Campo Food Court, the bookstore, the Hub Pub, the Gallery of Student Art, a mosque, and other facilities catering to the daily needs of students.
