Indigenous Landscape project at U of T's St. George campus to bring history, culture and learning to Hart House Green

Before the University of Toronto came to be, there was what we now call Taddle Creek – a waterway that began near the intersection of Davenport Road and Bathurst Street, snaked through the St. George campus and then made its way down to Lake Ontario.

The creek was a gathering place for Indigenous groups, including the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

With European colonization, the region became the city of Toronto and continued to grow, leading to the creek’s having been buried underground.

The world comes to U of T: Meet this year’s Pearson Scholars

They are 36 future leaders, newly arrived international students who represent 27 countries from around the world. And on Tuesday at Hart House, the latest cohort of Pearson Scholars was officially welcomed to the University of Toronto by President Meric Gertler.

“On behalf of the entire academic community, welcome to the University of Toronto, welcome to the Toronto region, and – because most of you are new to Canada – welcome to Canada,” President Gertler told the students.

The college system

All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the St. George campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
