We know you’ve just arrived here, but consider this your bucket list: the things you should try at least once while you’re a University of Toronto student. Better yet, explore all three campuses and create your own set of “must-dos.” Let this be inspiration to get you started!

1. Stroll down Philosopher’s Walk. Arrive at the meaning of life. Failing that, arrive at a decision over what to have for lunch.

2. Take an AstroTour and view a planetary body through the telescopes at McLennan Physical Laboratories.

8. Eat a veggie dog from Nasir’s hotdog stand at U of T Scarborough. (Drake does!) Nasir’s weekly riddles are awesome.

9. Take a “walk with your prof” on a guided tour of the U of T Mississauga campus. You might spot a deer. You might also get to know a prof. Watch for the signs.

 10. Swim in the Hart House pool. With the skylights and arches, it almost feels as if you’re swimming outside … in Rome.

11. Search for the elusive secret tunnel that runs beneath the U of T Mississauga campus.

12. Study in every U of T library at least once. There are 44 of them, and many are stunning!
