Oh social media, how well you can provide instant gratification and escape for the short attention-spanned generation. I’m going to attempt to compile a list of funny UofT related facebook pages because I realized there are a lot of them. Let’s begin.

…I’m very weird.”
“What makes UofT special?”
“It’s a place where you can live, laugh, love.”
“Ok seriously though, UofT is a place of incredible opportunity. Yes, it is huge, yes it’s impersonal, but that’s the real world for you. It gives you space to try as many new things as you want. You have to look for it though. I found it outside of the classroom through student groups through which I taught in Istanbul, did development work in Kenya, and currently working on a startup idea to help students stop smoking in Toronto.”
I’m certain there are many more, but I didn’t want this to be an overly long post. If you like any UofT related facebook page, add it in comments below!
