17 Things Every U of T Student Should Do Before They Graduate

Stroll Philosopher's Walk, peer through a telescope, hear the Gospel Choir and much more!

U of T has hundreds of great student clubs, tons of fun events and dozens of gorgeous buildings and spaces to explore. How many of these have you done?

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. View a lunar eclipse or planetary body through the telescopes at McLennan Physical Laboratories

3. Go to a concert by the U of T Gospel Choir

5. Study in one of the pods at the Leslie L. Dan Faculty of Pharmacy building

6. Attend the U of T Drama Festival at Hart House Theatre

7. Paint your face and cheer on the Blues at a football game at Varsity Stadium
