Stay busy and get involved as much as you can with groups, clubs, athletics and use this time to explore whatever you are interested in! Go the extra mile to get to know your professors and TAs – they can mentor and help you figure out what direction you want to go in. Before signing up for classes, do you research, go talk to people who are already taking or have taken the program/course, talk to the professors and sit in on the class beforehand.

“Get involved with new things that excite you! Don’t feel stuck in one area (in academics or extra-curriculars). U of T is a great place to try new things, meet new people, and grow. While it’s great to do well academically, getting A’s isn’t the sole importance of going to University.”
