 As one of Toronto's largest tourist attractions, it only makes sense to come here! We understand that not all students are from Toronto, and this gives them a chance to explore a bit of the city. Plus, who wouldn't love to see all kinds of fish and sea creatures in the heart of Toronto?

 Our boat cruise is an event you will definitely not want to miss! Including past themes like "Wacky Tacky" and "Masquerade," this event is usually held in the evening on a boat, cruising Lake Ontario. You will be able to enjoy the skyline of Toronto and see the CN Tower light up the night sky while dancing to some of your favourite songs.

 To lighten the mood for the week, The Second City is a hilarious comedy group that does sketches and specializes in improvisation sessions as well. Their improvs are often interactive and everyone has a blast!

The Tri-Campus Parade is organized by the UTSU and gives new students a chance to recognize the rest of the colleges and faculties at the university, giving them the first real glimpse at the diversity and magnitude of UofT.
