Each year University College reaches out to students who received funding from donor-supported scholarships and asks them to participate in an impact report titled, "In Their Own Words". Learn how your generosity is helping University College students achieve their full potential, inside the classroom and out in the community. Because of your support, our students are reaching their goals and pushing themselves towards greater heights of achievement.
Meet this year's featured students:
It is clear that both the University of Toronto and University College - as well as the individuals who make up these institutions - genuinely care about the wellbeing and success of their students, both in their academic lives and in their personal lives.
University College, and particularly the Health Studies program with UC, has helped me realize the person who I aspire to be and has supported me wholeheartedly as I work towards this.
Without having received this financial support, I would have potentially needed to work during the school year, which would have prevented me from participating on the Varsity Women's Hockey Team.
The community I found at University College was essential to helping me establish a sense of belonging, in Toronto and at university in general.
This award is particularly special to me because I worked tirelessly on bill C4 - An Act to Amend the Criminal Code (Conversion Therapy).
University College has welcomed me with open arms and warm hearts in a time of my life where I felt at a loss for a community to call my own.
