The students aren't breaking a sweat, but make no mistake: They are training hard. 

About two dozen of the country's top mathletes in Grades 8 to 10 have come to the University of Toronto this week to hone their abilities ahead of national math Olympiads starting this fall.

The college system

All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (St. George) campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
