Day in the Life at IT@UofT

The Day in the Life series captures a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day experiences and nuances of IT@UofT on campus.

IT@UofT consists of a wide variety of individuals and teams, all of which have vastly different on-campus experiences and relationships. In this series, teams showcase their office space, favourite walk on campus, the cozy coffee shop they go to in the morning, social aspects of their team dynamic and more.
