Every time I drive past these two places, I think of the different times I visited Convocation Hall & the Mississauga Campus of the U of T. I visited the Convocation Hall for the recording of a program for CBC Radio's, "The Vinyl Cafe". This popular program can be heard each Sunday at none with Stewart McClean. The first show was cancelled because of snow but I managed to attended the second sold out show. I sat in the top row of seats but despite my seat being very uncomfortable, the sight lines plus sound carried from the stage was acceptable from a listening perspective. The story lines of this variety and humour type show don't change over the years but the Toronto Star's Entertainment Section always promotion when this show is visiting different part of the province of Ontario.
In visiting the Mississauga Campus of the U of T, I have been here three times for different activities. (1) The first time was with a group of young people involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award on an Exchange Trip from England in 1983. The group was given a complete tour of the campus plus shown what a type residence for students looked like. (2) The second time was a roundtable discuss relating with the Couchiching Institute of Public Affairs. It was on a timely topic lead by a professor from this university with members like myself of this non-profit organization along with some university students. It was a rather enlighting and informative discussion plus question & answer session. (3) Attended an art exhibit in one of the buildings which had been promoted by the Toronto Star. I managed to finf it after navigating numerous building and hallways. From what I can remember, this art exhibiot lived up to its billing from the written newspaper article.
Based on my own experience with the U of T is one doesn't have to be a student of this institute of higher learning to enjoy what it has to offer. whether you are at the downtown campus and/or one of the suburban campus's, you will find it a positive experience that will be remembered for a long period of time. Recommend touring this place!
