STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
The University of Toronto is increasingly regarded as one of the world’s leading academic institutions.
The 2019 Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings, released yesterday, ranks U of T in 19th place globally. That’s up three spots from last year.
Among public universities, U of T ranked eighth in the world and fourth in North America.
“This fantastic result reflects the wealth of talent and expertise at the University of Toronto,” said U of T President Meric Gertler.
The University of Toronto ranks among the top 10 universities in the world in subjects as diverse as psychology, finance and geography, according to the latest Academic Ranking of World Universities.
The parades of smiling graduates going to and from Convocation Hall are almost over. The crowds of family and friends snapping selfies on front campus will soon be a memory – that is, until the next cohort of students celebrate their big academic milestone in the fall.
But before the University of Toronto’s most recent graduates set off for exciting careers or further study, we asked six from the Faculty of Arts & Science to pass along advice to current and future students.

“Coming into U of T with an economics mindset and leaving with a sociology, political science and economics background changed my life. They all tackle global poverty, aid and development, but from very different schools of thought."

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
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.
