Off-Campus Housing: Lots of options are available.

Nightlife: The campus is located in downtown Toronto is great for the nightlife.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: Being that it is a large, public city school, there is a lot of leeway given to students (many of whom are older adults themselves). No one is treated like a child, but policies are followed.

Off-Campus Housing: Not typical off-campus housing. When looking for "off-campus housing", one is usually looking for a real home to rent, with a lot of competition with non-students.

Local Atmosphere: As a Toronto native, I can honestly say that Toronto is one of the most underrated cities in the world.

Greek Life: I've only been to one greek life party and it was a good time.

Scholarships: Universities and colleges in Canada are very inexpensive compared to the American standard, and so paying for an education usually isn't seen as looming wall. However, there are many scholarships and grants available to hard working students with exceptional backgrounds.

Transportation: UofT is located in the midst of downtown Toronto, therefore there are no campus run shuttle buses which take students from one part of campus to the next. Although the total campus size is quite large, everything is in walking distance. Students also have the option of taking public transportation to their destination.

Nightlife: The night life in Toronto is amazing...assuming that you know the right people. Otherwise, you come off as a small fish in a huge ocean.

Diversity: Although the city of Toronto is known for its wide variety of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds, the University of Toronto seems to lack diversity. The largest ethnic group seems to be white, followed by asian/south asian, and lastly black.

Weather: The campus is really nice when the weather is good, but once winter sets in it gets very cold and people try to avoid staying outside for extended periods of time

Drug Safety: Obviously people do take drugs, but I wouldn't say there's any pressure to if you don't hang out with those people

Diversity: Students come from all over the world. I think the population is more reflective of the actual world population, with many Europeans, Asians, and Middle Easterners on campus. There are also many religious activities to accommodate members of different religions, and to educate those with other religions.

Academics: The teachers are a mix between apathetic, lazy, and unhelpful, or amazingly talented and very interested in your career.

Academics: The program is great, but the school doesn't offer classes regularly. It's going to take me an extra year to graduate because the required classes were not offered enough.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many delicious types of ethnic cuisine available within walking distance of the school.

Academics: I am at University College. My experience has been amazing in terms of classes and professors. I had the opportunity to enroll in a seminar Trin One, which challenged me in many aspects. My professors although are deeply engaged in their research have genuine concern for teaching and always offered help and are very approachable. The fact they are involved in research and other organizations is more of an advantage than a disadvantage because they are able to share their experience in their field. My only problem comes with the differences between domestic and international students. Not only it is significantly harder to obtain financial aid as an international student, but opportunities for research abroad are restricted only for Canadian residents or citizens. This I found limits the experience in some aspects, but on the bright side the vast presence of different clubs and chapters allowed me to get involved with organizations that pursuit similar goals as me, and share common interest and provide the opportunity to conduct research on a more personal basis. I was lucky to encounter good and devoted teacher assistants, but I heard from friends that some are not willing to provide help or do not show concern for individual learning or personal circumstances that might difficult the learning process. Overall academics are great but because of the recurrent complains about some teacher assistants and my experience with limitations as an international student I give U of T an "A".

Health & Safety: I find no issues with the safety here. When there is an issue, the administration and the campus police deal with is effectively.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People here take great care of their appearances, and most people are very stylish and cosmopolitan. They are also very motivated and hard working, so it is a great environment both for studying and going out.

Drug Safety: Smoking and drinking are fairly prevalent in certain crowds, but many students do not take part. There is no pressure to take part if one is not interested.

3 College Freshman

Academics: U of T is a graduate school. Undergrad profs are bad and not worth your time really. They are there to do research and they are good at that but some of them lack some serious teaching abilities.

Campus Strictness: They are concerned if there is any illegal activity but warnings are given. unless you publicize what your doing.
