A Trip to Disney On Ice

My friend and I are never ones to pass up an opportunity to sing a Disney song or make a movie reference. So naturally, it was only right that she wanted to see something that she loved and that she knew we would really enjoy as well.

Your 2019 Champions League Roundup

After a disappointing exit last year, and with arguably the greatest of all time on their side, I think it will finally be their season where they are able to bring the trophy back to Spain, but not to Madrid. 

'Tis the Season for Sports

The misconception that winter is that you must stay indoors to escape the cold to hibernate, to gain nothing more than the rising numbers of your scale. Fear not, dear students, for there are much better ways to spend winter if you only allow yourself to try them; there are seasonal, winter-exclusive sports!

What Generation Do You Fall Into?

Each generation has big differences within them, which is why it is not only important to know the years of when the generation starts and finishes, but also the relationship between geography. This explains two things: why we might see different birth years in different places, and why people feel they don’t fit into their cohort.

Bracing Yourself For Final Exams?

To make sure that your efforts have been worthwhile and you get that mark you deserve, let’s take some time today to review our universal first step toward success — your study habits! 

Giving Instead of Receiving?

I would like every individual who reads this article to imagine a person, of any age, who has been through a rough time in their lives and who does not have the means to provide any gifts for others nor do they expect to receive any in turn.

Black Friday Madness

Black Friday also follows American Thanksgiving. Inferior, yes, but both holidays are theirs to begin with. The idea of starting Christmas shopping early is great and all, but isn’t the whole point of Thanksgiving to, oh, I don’t know, be grateful for what you have?

Dias, Henna, and Delicious Foods!

“During the two-hour event, the young ladies helped themselves to Gulab Jamun, Vegetable Samosas, Pakoras, and Chai. Additionally, Henna and Diya painting were available for the residents to enjoy.”

Age of Anthropocene

“If you’d like to know more and dare to experience this yourself, I guarantee you that there is a place where you will get the results you want — Anthropocene.”

2018 Commuter Don “Cookie Fest”

“Hope is not lost when we have amazing organizations like the University of St. Michael’s College (USMC) Commuter Dons, who, with the support of the Office of Student Life, host amazing community building activities.”

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

“It could be argued that Trump has inspired a surge of celebrities with no prior political experience or knowledge to run for these positions of political power. But what does this say about the field of politics itself? That just anyone can wake up one morning and decide that they want to run a country? It goes without saying that someone entrusted with such immense responsibility should surely have some kind of reputable experience in the field before taking on such a task as becoming the leader of a country.”

Humans Of USMC: Katie Pullella

“Katie Pullella is a recent graduate of the Life Sciences Program here at the University of Toronto (U of T). She holds an Honours Bachelor of Science, with double majors in Health and Disease and Biology, as well as a minor in Physiology. She is currently pursuing a Master’s of Nutritional Sciences at U of T and is the Don of the third floor of Sorbara Hall — a University of St. Michael’s College (USMC) residence hall.”

Remembering U of T’s Past

“Sitting inside Hart House’s common room and the canons still firing away, I watched as the soldiers marched towards Queen’s Park. To think that could have been me in the 1900s!”

Feeling the Midterm Blues? Head Up North!

“This midterm season, challenge yourself with a different environment and a different activity! You might surprise yourself by learning new skills and you might even be able to study better if you take the time for self-care and tap into your creativity.”

The Gun Epidemic Plaguing the GTA

“By July, it was confirmed that our homicide rate was slightly higher than the historically higher rate in New York City. But New York’s rate has been on the decline, and the homicide rate is still higher in cities such as Winnipeg and Chicago. This small fact has propagated in the media, certainly stirring the moral panic.”

One Fine Saturday

“I had realized in that moment that I had indeed made the right decision. It had been a difficult one. But at 42 I made the choice to leave a good paying and secure job and return to university to finish what I had started several years ago.”
