The 10 men and women you’ll find at UTM


  1. That one white dude with a perm 
  2. The comp-sci kid that hasn’t showered since he took MAT102 
  3. The lead of the recent Theatre Erindale production that has slept with every castmate 
  4. The guy that shoves you into a bush outside Square One after parking his Civvy because he just saw his auntie 
  5. The English major who says he’s a feminist just because he read Margaret Atwood once for a class
  6. The guy who asks you out in a full suit because he just finished UTM mock debate trials 
  7. The one 30-year-old undergrad that’s going to be asking for legal advice from number six soon because he keeps sliding into first years’ DMs
  8. That one mysterious, sexy TA you have in first year and stalk on LinkedIn only to find out he’s married to his high school sweetheart 
  9. The guy you match with on Hinge every time you redownload the app, but then you see him at the UTM gym and he’s actually 5’6 and wears the same outfit to class and to the gym
  10. That one guy that plays pool in the Blind Duck and moans every time he hits the white ball


  1. The first-year STEM major who’s set on going to med school and won’t stop talking about how she’s pre-med
  2. The granola girl who grew up in BC, only wears Patagonia with cuffed jeans and Birkenstocks exposing her un-painted toes, and carries a Nalgene water bottle with a sticker that reads “Stay Wild”
  3. That one SUPER affectionate theatre girly who’s “rehearsing a scene” on the Deerfield couches with her co-star
  4. The girl with the venti pinkty-drinkity at 8 a.m.
  5. The girl who shows up in shades and a Louis Vuitton Neverfull 20 minutes late to every lecture (if she even comes in the first place)
  6. The Philosophy major who’s complaining about her grades even though she picked that major…
  7. The bi girl whose boyfriend says he “doesn’t care if she hooks up with girls”
  8. (Often the same girl as number seven) That one girl you see on Hinge who is looking for a third with her comp-sci boyfriend 
  9. That one girl who’s ALWAYS talking on the phone with her high school friends because she’s stuck in her high school peak era
  10. The English major that talks like she’s a passenger on the Titanic, “greetings fellow thespians”
