 University of Toronto Convocation November 2014

 Slide Share of Favourite UofT Faculties by Illustrator Artist David Crighton

 

 

Convocation Hall

This November from 17-24 there will be a number of University of Toronto students throwing up their hats for graduation. Convocation Hall hosts all the ceremonies for the graduating classes at the U. of T.  The Office of Convocation has the dates and times of the ceremonies so you won't miss a friend or loved one crossing the podium.

  

Kings College Circle is the traditional heart of the University of Toronto. The centre piece is the main building for the university. King's College circle hosts various events throughout the year. On of the most important ones is convocation. Next month you will be able to spot many graduates walking across its lawn to Convocation Hall where they will end this chapter of their lives and embark on                                their chosen careers.

Crightonism: This illustration/print was commissioned by the University and I printed 1,500 black and white copies which they present to alumnae who make bequests to the school. When I showed the final artwork to the board I prefaced the unveiling with the statement "If what I'm about to show you isn't good enough for your purposes you'll just have to find another artist because this is the absolute best I can possibly create for you"..... They "liked" it :) 

Massey College 

Massey College was founded in 1963. It is a graduate students’ residential community affiliated with, but independent from, the University of Toronto. It provides a unique, congenial and intellectual environment for graduate students of distinguished ability in all disciplines to share in a rich and stimulating community.

Crightonism: A friend of mine was briefly employed here and he took me on a short tour which included the private study of Robertson Davies…very cosy. I have enjoyed reading the annual "Massey Lectures" since I discovered them recently. This complex is a notable example of the work of architect Ron Thom who also designed Trent University located in Peterborough Ontario Canada.

Flavelle House.

  Flavelle House features the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto and is one of the most prestigious law schools in Canada. 

 

 

 Trinity College

Trinity College is a small academic college with a long and illustrious history within the University of Toronto. A small, distinctive college at the heart of a great university, Trinity offers an exceptional academic experience and fosters community, responsibility and leadership.

Crightonism: My father was a student here after serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War.
