"UC has provided me with the tools and opportunities to make the most out of my university experience."
Awards have motivated me to study subjects I am passionate about and to make the most out of my academic experiences. They encouraged me to achieve and maintain academic excellence, to pursue opportunities confidently, and to be a well-rounded member of the student community.
I moved into University College residence as soon as I arrived in Toronto four years ago; being in a living-learning community, I enjoyed all the activities and just being part of a large, supportive student group. Throughout first year in residence, I got acquainted with all the opportunities UC offered – from the physical facilities like the library and the coffee shop to the services like the writing centre, UC Lit, the registrar, and the academic departments located at UC. From orientation to Open Mic, I became impressed by the lively scene of student activities at the college; living in the center of the campus, I felt free and empowered to explore campus activities and find a sense of belonging.
