“I feel as if I have a community, but just a few steps outside and I’m in the heart of the city. You certainly don’t feel like you’re alone, you feel like you’re a part of a living system.”

U of T says hello to prospective students at Ontario Universities' Fair

The most common question Josh Tejolan gets at the Ontario Universities’ Fair is if he likes it at the University of Toronto.

The short answer: Yes. The reason? “I love the feel of the university being its own little city within the city,” the fourth-year student said.

Dorsa Fardaei remembers being in a New York airport with her family and friends, where she was told by her friends to stop speaking Persian. They didn’t want her to be suspected of being a terrorist.

“That was really bad,” Fardaei told the Boston Globe.

Now in Toronto, her friends ask her to teach them Persian words, the first-year University of Toronto student said. 


“What I really studied the most and really focused on has been the technology of the human being, and our culture and society, not the digital society. That was instilled in me by my mentors."

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.
