Vice-Principal Academic & Dean's Welcome

My advice to students at UTSC is that you should embrace the university experience.  Sometimes we see an undergraduate education as a means to an end - "I need to get this and then i'll have a happy life, or an interesting life, or a good job, or ...whatever."  Certainly the undergraduate education will support job related opportunities afterwards, but really it's about taking it as an opportunity to be excited about ideas.  It's kind of special when you take a four year period of time and you're devoting it to something that on the surface doesn't really produce a car...or an object...but you're producing a mind that is capable of thinking critically.  There is nothing more precious than that.  More of Dean Gough's recent interview in the Underground v.35, i.02
