‘Incredible and incredibly busy’: Engineering's Pearson Scholars on life in a new country, studying at U of T

A month after arriving from Antigua, Guatemala, Jose Pablo Siliezar Carrillo has already visited Niagara Falls, ascended the CN Tower and enjoyed his first Blue Jays game. Next on the list is seeing the Toronto Raptors, the NBA’s defending champions. 

But first: midterms.

How do you move? Post-secondary students asked to participate in regional transportation survey

For Karina Maynard, a master’s of planning student in the University of Toronto’s department of geography and planning in the Faculty of Arts & Science, the commute she makes to and from the St. George campus each day is short and relatively easy: she opts to ride her bike.

But commutes vary widely by mode, distance and travel time for the 600,000 university and college students who live in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), with many commutes posing significantly more challenges – and higher stress levels – than Maynard’s daily ride.

For aspiring U of T physicist, meeting with Nobel Prize winners a rare chance to learn from world's brightest

Patrick Pallagi, a second-year student studying physics at the University of Toronto, has come closer than most to the prestigious Nobel Prize.

The student at St. Michael’s College recently travelled to Lindau, Germany to participate in the 69th annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, where about 40 Nobel Prize winners gathered to meet the next generation of scientists between June 30 and July 5.  

He was one of just 580 young scientists invited to attend the event.
