  • Well, there’s a map for that….

    We discovered this map (“Origins of First-Year Undergraduates at U of T”) on President Naylor’s blog. It is wonderfully addictive! There is one student from Iceland. 303 students from Vancouver. Two students from Senegal. Two students from Bermuda. Not only am I reminded of the diversity of people and cultures who attend the University of […]

  • Home, sweet home….

    After 9 months in our temporary space, CTSI has finally returned to our (newly renovated) office on the 4th floor of Robarts!

I need two half credits (one 400-seminar course and the Digital Text) – which means night classes Monday through Thursday – to finish the degree that I began in 1988. It is my 24-year degree.

  • Cut down on waste, not trees!

    Submitted by Elah Feder – Project Coordinator, Sustainability Office, UofT A few years ago, a student researcher calculated U of T uses about 10 million sheets of paper each year. That’s just in first and second year courses on St. George campus, and it doesn’t include all the textbooks we use each year, so the […]
