STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
When Ka Wing Kelvin Chu completed an honours bachelor degree from the University of Toronto two years ago, his parents travelled from China to attend convocation but not his grandmother.
A 15-hour flight at her age was not feasible, he says.
So, a separate ceremony hosted by U of T in Hong Kong later that year allowed the international student’s 82-year-old grandmother to see him be the first in the family to receive a university degree.

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.
