Why did you choose U of T?

I came to an open house and was won over while touring the campus and watching the presentations.

What advice would you give to first year students?

Get involved. Whether it be something you know you like, or something you just want to try for the first time, getting involved in clubs, sports teams, and volunteering is a way to expand your horizons and meet people with similar interests as you.

What is your favourite thing about the University of Toronto?

The endless possibilities. The great thing about going to a big school is that no matter what you are interested in you can always find a club, team, or class just for it.

What has been your favourite course so far?

So far I would have to say the Woodsworth One program’s ‘Order and Disorder’ is my favorite. The Woodsworth One program provided me with the knowledge to make transitioning to university level writing and reading a lot easier while simultaneously creating a fun and inclusive community atmosphere.
