Commuter Orientation 2017

Check out these videos to see what we got up to during this year's Commuter Orientation!

On August 12th we welcomed our incoming commuter students to their new home with socials, guest lectures, a scavenger hunt/campus tour, an excursion to Ripley's, a killer karaoke night and, of course, Werewolf.
On August 13th we rounded out our welcome weekend with a wellness event (ft. yoga, tie-dyeing, board games, and even more Werewolf), resource and club presentations, pancakes with VOCA, a latte making workshop with Caffiends, and our closing ceremony.

Who needs Allan Gardens anyway? Melinda shows us U of T's own tropical paradise in this fourth installment of our Hidden Gems series. The rooftop greenhouses at the Earth Sciences Centre are open to the public 9-5 Monday through Friday. 

Hart House
Fitness rooms

Not every class at U of T is listed in the course calendar. In the third installment of our Hidden Gems series, Artimes shows us one of Hart House's fitness rooms. All three gyms on the St. George campus have a variety of registered and free drop-in fitness classes waiting for you this fall! 

Robarts Library
8th floor

Think Robarts is just a giant stone turkey housing an endless maze of stacks and all-nighters? Think again. In the second instalment of our Hidden Gems series, Orientation Exec Gabe shows us a quiet study nook waiting for you on the 8th floor: the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library. 

Knox College

Take a look at the first installment of our Hidden Gems series as Zahavah takes us to her favourite spot on campus: Knox College Quad. This little nook of U of T is filled with vibrant greens and gorgeous archways, complete with tables to relax with a book!
