Hope all is well! I wanted to give some insight into how I’ve found my undergraduate engineering degree at the University of Toronto. I think it would have helped or been nice when I was applying and I hope it’s…

How I Balance Work with Study as an Engineering Student
In my first year of engineering at U of T I was so swamped with work because of my poor time-management skills coupled with trying to adapt to a new environment and culture. At that point in my life I…
Remembrance Day, 11th November
On Sunday, I held my own 2-minute silent for Remembrance Sunday as Downing Street and the rest of the UK adapted to making the national event online. It felt strange but a working stop-gap. Over the past few years, it’s…

When I told my nuclear engineering friend at UOIT that U of T puts a professor on a bed of nails annually for a course, he thought I meant figuratively.
Branching out with STEM – Volunteering in Your Field
I’m not sure if I should be concerned about how easily motivated I am by food and free t-shirts.. But I think it’s a good starting point to getting more involved with the community of my chosen field of study.
Have No Fear: Peers are Here!

Exploring U of T
The other week I went into the Bahen building properly for the first time for my summer school exam and I realized that not only was it really nice in there, but that there were actually a lot of buildings…
Reviving wonder at Science Rendezvous
Sometimes in the midst of memorizing biological pathways and solving quantum mechanics problems it can be easy to forget just how fun and awe-inspiring science is. Many of us studying science in university were drawn to it by admiration for…
