No one knows when the fridge was installed in the Sheaf office. Some say it was 2001, some say 1918. Others say it’s been there since the dawn of time. Judging by the state of the leftovers inside, we’re leaning toward some time between the Renaissance and the First World War.
On a warm spring afternoon, Peter MacKinnon paces in his office at the College Building. He suns himself in the large windows of his office surrounded by years of personal trophies. The office speaks to the character of the man. As an avid hunter and lover of the chase, the walls are lined with the pelts of his many prairie safaris. In a corner far from his desk, a garbage can is topped with a small basketball hoop, the floor around it littered with crumpled and discarded office memos. In a few months, MacKinnon will be retired and likely forgotten by most people, but for now he is simply worried about getting through the last spring convocation as President of the University of Saskatchewan.

Catering to students and life-long bachelors, the Murray Library is a little-known neighbourhood that is rapidly growing. Felix Larson has lived in the Murray Library since December of 2010 and has witnessed first-hand how fast the area is growing. He cites the Place Riel renovation as a massive draw to the area and feels more and more people are becoming aware of this blossoming community.
