Students, staff and faculty celebrated U of T’s 189th birthday last Tuesday.

Since it was established in 1827, U of T has been home to Canada’s first female computer scientist, the first electron microscope, the discovery of insulin, and to Canada’s first electronic computer.

To honour the milestone, a photo contest was hosted by U of T’s Student Life Programs and Services across all three campuses last Tuesday using the hashtag #hbdUofT. Three prize-winners are to be randomly drawn from the submission of pictures on Twitter or Instagram, and a winning photo is currently in the process of being voted on through U of T’s Student Life and Services Facebook page. Voting is to conclude at 11:59 p.m. tonight.
