“At the Pan Am Games I swam the 200m butterfly. To see a bunch of my teammates there all wearing their U of T gear and cheering me on is something very special.”

Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood comes to U of T for Canadian premiere of “The Handmaid’s Tale”

When the producers of the television adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s famed novel The Handmaid’s Tale began developing the series, they didn’t realize how closely it would follow the political realities of the United States over the past year. 

“The entire cast of the series woke up on Nov. 9th and looked at each other and said, in essence, ‘We are no longer in a fiction,’” Atwood told a full house of University of Toronto students, faculty, staff and media at Innis College on Wednesday for the Canadian premiere of the first episode of the series.

Success isn't a straight line: U of T alumna reflects on life after graduation

Elizabeth Ching had a post-graduation plan. 

She had laid the groundwork for a career in content marketing by completing internships as a student. She received a job offer even before her dual degree in linguistics, and book and media studies.

But things didn't go exactly as planned.

Phew! U of T student made her final, thanks commuters who helped during TTC delay

A. Zhang has a habit of arriving early for everything – which made getting stuck on the TTC the morning of an important exam all the more stressful.

The first-year undergraduate shared her story after U of T News published an article about the strangers who helped her reach the exam room in the nick of time last week. 


“The cool thing about the aerospace program at U of T is that it is off campus. It was like a small community in itself, where you have the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of people studying diverse initiatives.”

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.
