Now a Massey alumnus

2017-09-16

in Daily updates, Massey College, Toronto

This fall, it has been a bit sad to spend my first September at U of T after finishing my five years as a Massey College Junior Fellow: not getting invited to orientation events, or told about the official college photo.

Massey has had an enormous influence over my time at U of T, and it’s hard to imagine how the PhD experience would have been without it. U of T is so big (as is the political science department) that I would never otherwise have had such a sense of community, much less the cross-disciplinary and stimulating environment of Massey.

As an alumnus, I am still free to participate in most college events, and I have been enjoying meeting this year’s crop of Junior Fellows. I’m grateful that I have had the chance to experience graduate school again, after working for long enough to know what a privilege it is.

Massey College seems to be the most exciting and positive experience during your time in Toronto. I imagine it will continue to be so as you move to the next stage of your academic endeavor. Every so often in our life journey, we find a place or people that fit us just right and we learn so much.
