Why Do You Choose to Study at UTM?

We know U of T is top ranked in Canada, but what makes UTM so special and different from the other 2 campuses? Here are some common things that students love about UTM.

-a smaller campus allows you to concentrate on your studies with minimal distractions

-relatively smaller classes so you get more individualized learning and time for help with professors; the max number of students in your first-year class would be 500

-a smaller campus makes it easier to navigate the buildings. The longest it takes to walk from one class to another would be 7 minutes!

Food Options on Campus

A good tip is to not go to long lectures with an empty stomach! As much as you might love meal prepping, we all have to eat on campus at some point. Here are some good food options to suit your taste.

• Instructional Building: Second Cup, Fresca Panini, On the Go 

-now IB also offers ramen and rice bowls; they are quite tasty

• Deerfield Hall: Entrée Salads, Pizza & Calzones from a Woodstone Oven, Scratch Soups, and Freshly Baked Goods with a focus on Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free

-Deerfield is a good choice if you are health-conscious Continue reading “Food Options on Campus”

Summer Abroad: The Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity

Most of us like to travel, but all of us want to learn. Summer Abroad is the chance to do both! Each year, the University of Toronto (Woodsworth College) accepts hundreds of applications for several summer courses that happen overseas. While most of these courses are generally 4-5 weeks in duration, students will receive 1.0 credit for the completion of the course. Naturally, there are several streams and subjects to pick from and even more amazing countries to consider – France, England, Italy, Ecuador, UAE, South America, Germany, and more! For complete info (costs, residence, syllabus), be sure to visit the Summer Abroad website: https://summerabroad.utoronto.ca/ Continue reading “Summer Abroad: The Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity”

How to Pick Business Clothes You Actually Like

So I recently went shopping with a friend of mine to Square One to find potential articles of clothing or jewelry I could add to my wardrobe.  I stopped in front of Le Chateau and contemplated upon going in – did I really want to spend time looking for business clothes?  They’re just so bland and boring…  I’m sure each of you have had this thought at some point or another – after all, there are so many rules to follow, certain colours to pick, certain styles and designs to adhere to and quite a lot to avoid.  In fact, business clothes seem extremely conservative and maybe even outdated in style.  I mean, when I first wore black pants, a printed blouse and black heels, I felt like I was walking in ’90s attire but still somehow overdressed.  So what exactly is the best way to find business clothes that make you feel comfortable, stylish, and professional?
