"It’s like you sit in a classroom with a research paper and the person who wrote the paper is the professor in front of you. That kind of experience you don’t get at many universities.”

STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
Maimuna Akhter and Maha Khan – both undergraduate students in biological sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough – have come full circle.
This year’s back-to-school season promises to be bigger than ever at the University of Toronto.
With many upper-year students returning to campus in earnest after two years of virtual and hybrid classes, tens of thousands of students will be looking for ways to connect – or reconnect – with campus life.
When Selina Tong was in high school, she didn’t know what she wanted to study at university. Her strongest subjects were math and science, so she debated between business, architecture and engineering.
While she was exposed to the latter field from an early age – her father is an electrical engineer, and her sister went into computer engineering – she says she still didn’t know what people did in the profession.

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the 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.
