Participated in a pow wow grand entry for the first time ever. Had a delicious bison burrito. Bought an amazing necklace and a few other items from the vendors. Saw family and many old friends. Loved watching all the dancing. The Aztec dancers were amazing. Metis jigging looked so much fun. The Inuit drummer was excellent. Looking forward to the next one.

I'd love to attend but I can't due to other commitments. I graduated from UofT in 2003. I was a mature student so I spent one year in Transitional Year Program (TYP) - not sure if it still exists - prior to becoming a true "first year" student. . The years I spent on the St George Campus of UT were some of the best years I ever had. Truly.
