“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.”

Out of this world: U of T student's SpaceX internship involved working on Falcon Heavy's engines

The image is both silly and awe-inspiring: Elon Musk’s midnight cherry-coloured Tesla roadster piloted through space, Earth as a backdrop, by a spacesuit-wearing dummy.

“I was actually surprised they launched the car,” says Askar Kazbekov, a University of Toronto student who is working on a master’s degree in aerospace, aeronautical and astronautical engineering.

“The running joke [at SpaceX] was that the Falcon Heavy could lift a school bus in the faring – so we should put a school bus into space.”

After Colten Boushie: Addressing 'pressing and troubling' issues

The acquittal of Gerald Stanley, the Saskatchewan farmer who admitted to shooting and killing Colten Boushie, a 22-year-old Cree man, has many Canadians struggling to come to terms with the plight of Indigenous Peoples and the state of truth and reconciliation across the country.  

Along with outpourings of sympathy and condolences for Boushie’s family and concern about the verdict, the country has also seen a troubling backlash against Indigenous people, including the posting of racist comments via social media.

“How does a guy with an English degree get into computers? I’m so glad I did because the ability to communicate is fundamental to what I do.”

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.
