The halls of University College  

 

University College
Our submissions to the time capsule represent the enduring history of University College (UC).

The UC Yearbook, Revival 2002, represents UC students reviving a tradition that had been forgotten over the years. The selected pictures from our yearbook correspond to our students' deeply felt sense of continuing past traditions that define the ethos of the college, notably, diversity and openness.

Our second submission is the Winking Owl. It was carved and set into the wooden paneling many decades ago by craftsmen who invested the entire building with vigour and love for life. If the owl is not altogether serious in its wisdom, that too is in the nature of the college: most of us found pleasure as part of our learning there. The owl can be found in the southwest corner of UC's West Hall.

Not only is this a landmark year for the U of T - University College kicked off its sesquicentennial anniversary on April 22, 2003. A broad range of events, both recreational and academic in nature, will help commemorate and celebrate our collective history over the last one hundred and fifty years.
