Student News at U of T
Graduating students representing the Class of 2021 in the University of Toronto’s virtual convocation ceremony are encouraging their peers to reflect on the magnitude of their achievements under difficult circumstances.
The student ambassadors, who represent U of T Scarborough, U of T Mississauga and the faculties, colleges and schools across U of T’s St. George campus, say the cohort was genuinely tested by the COVID-19 pandemic and yet still managed to go the distance and finish in style.
When she arrived at the University of Toronto as an international student from the United States, Laura Gallo quickly spotted a glaring omission among the various groups and associations on campus.
“My friend and I noticed there were a lot of clubs for women in STEM or women in business, and obviously those are very important in their own right, but there wasn’t an association for all self-identifying women on campus,” says Gallo, who is graduating this spring from New College with a bachelor of arts degree.
Zarina Mamadbekova’s grandfather was a role model, teaching her lessons she would live by while studying at the University of Toronto. Always be kind to others. Get a good education. Volunteer. Use your knowledge to help others.
As the U of T Mississauga graduand prepares to receive her degree in psychology and political science this year, Mamadbekova says her grandfather’s guidance helped her achieve academic success and prompted her to give back to the international student community.
