On 15 March 1827 everyone’s favourite university was founded. Obviously a lot has changed over the last 188 years, but in some ways, U of T has stayed exactly the same over to this day. One of my favourite things about U of T is thinking about how many generations of students have walked the same halls that we walk today. My first post on this blog was my way of looking back at U of T using pictures from U of T’s archives, and in honour of U of T’s birthday I’ve created a few more pictures showing U of T in the past versus how it looks today!
(In putting together this post I really wanted to use this picture of students playing chess in Hart House but I could not find this spot. If anyone knows where these windows are let me know in the comments below!)
bonus fun (because what’s a party without games?): In honour of the University’s birthday, U of T Magazine put together a quiz to test your U of T knowledge! I thought I knew a lot about U of T but I failed miserably at it. See if you can beat my abysmal score of 44%!
