Whether you are brand new to Humber College or the University of Guelph-Humber or have been here for three years, you may have been overwhelmed by all the Instagram accounts from all the campuses, so that is why the staff here at The Avro Post has put together a top ten list of accounts you might want to follow during your time here.

We understand that some accounts may be more pertinent depending on what campus you’re at but this guide will help you no matter whether you’re at North, Lakeshore or Orangeville Campuses.

1. Official school accounts

You can’t go wrong with @HumberCollege and @UofGHStudents — they are the official accounts for the school and can be helpful for current students.

2. IGNITE, the student union

@ShareIGNITE is your student union. They represent you to the college and try to make on-campus life better for you. They always have event notifications, news, helpful tips, contests and more useful to students across all campuses.

3. Humber Confessions

“Lmao… When even is the first day of school?” is one of the questions most recently asked on the @HumberConfessions Instagram page. It was started last year and continues to grow. It’s probably one of the most honest pages at Humber besides us.

It has a less active little cousin at @UoGHConfessions.

4. Humber Hawks

Sportz. It’s either you love it or you hate it, right? We recommend keeping tabs on our favourite team at @HumberHawks — the accounts posts game times, highlights and the like.

5. Humber Food

Do we really have to explain this one? Be the first to know about deals and menus at @Humber_Food — applicable to both North and Lakeshore Campuses.

6. Sustain Humber

We’re still not entirely sure what they do, but the Office of Sustainability, found at @SustainHumber, is a great page for getting free stuff and hearing about deals on or off campus. Plus, they’re all about saving the planet, which is a great thing, of course.

7. Consent Peer Educators

It’s always important to ask for consent. Following the @cpepteam on Instagram taps you into some great offers such as free condoms during certain events.

8. The fitness page

Do you work out? It’s good to keep both the mind and body healthy. Follow @HumberFitnessNorth — that account posts news, schedules and more. As a Humber or Guelph-Humber student, you can use the gym for free with a student card.

9. IGNITE clubs

We understand that “clubs” does not count as one part of a list, but we figure that we will highlight a few of the more active pages: @HumberPodcast, @UGH.Productions and @StudentsForChangeCanada.

Find the full list of clubs on the IGNITE clubs page. Students from both Humber and Guelph-Humber can join clubs.

10. Societies at Guelph-Humber

Societies are similar to clubs in the way they bring people together to do things, but they are usually tied to an academic program and some are part of broader organizations, though the same is true for some IGNITE clubs. Here are a few active ones: @GHPLS — pre-law, @GHPsychSociety and @GHConsulting.

That’s not all

There are many more accounts on Instagram tied to campus and likely more to yet be created even this academic year. We’re working on a comprehensive list of every associated Instagram account, whether official or unofficial, and we will publish that soon.

Let us know if you think we missed an important account and we will be sure to add it to our full list. Also, if you are not already following The Avro Post yet, find us at @TheAvroPost. ■
