Get involved beyond the classroom, what you do outside the classroom is equally as important as what you do inside the classroom. Becoming engaged in the wider UofT community will allow you to build important skills, meet incredible people and most importantly get to know yourself, which is how you will discover what you are good at and where your passion lies.

There are SO many opportunities to get involved, whether it is through summer abroad, international exchange, volunteering, clubs (there are over 900 + clubs!!!), there is something for everyone to take part it.

get to know your resources, there are no shortage of opportunities to get help and build your skills. Get to know the places you can turn to for help, for support and encouragement.

See the people in your classroom as allies, not your competition. You are all in this together, you can help each other and lift each other up. You are probably going through many of the same struggles as your peers, so don’t be shy about reaching out to them.

This is the best time for you to take part in all the wonderful things on offer, get to know all that awaits you….then you can be selective about what you partake in; and there is something for everyone in this amazing place!

“Take an ethics class at U of T and get work experience while at school but make sure to not let it interfere with your studies. Don’t focus on just building your resume, focus on clarifying your values as a person and reflect deeply on how you can express those values in your working life.”

“Take time to relax, de-stress and remember that it is okay to take breaks! Get involved!

The advantage of attending such a large university is that there is a vast array of opportunities to get involved on campus or with the larger community. “

“Start exploring your options early – there are so many jobs out there that you haven’t realized existed or are options to you. Build genuine connections and ask questions – there is something to learn from everyone. Especially if they have different career goals than you
