Sapientia et Doctrina Stabilitas = Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times–Queen’s University Motto

“Throughout the years I was a student at Queen’s there was no shortage of off colour entertainment and pranks with overtly sexual overtones played openly across the campus. The Engineering Society at Queen’s publishes Golden Words to this day. While I was a student it pulled no punches in its satire. Humour was found in poking fun at feminism and the inklings of political correctness that were showing up on campus. The use of masculine and feminine pronouns was becoming an issue. Some professors insisted students use s/he instead of he and she in term papers. The suffix man was replaced with person as in chairperson as opposed to chairman or chairwoman. Golden Words quipped that the Province of Manitoba would be renamed Personitoba to placate feminists.”
