Favourite Place on CampusI love the chapel and its marriage of beauty and sanctity. I fell in love when I visited campus, and I still love to wander in and enjoy the space.
Favourite Place in TorontoWe are new to the city, so I have lots of places to discover; however, my husband and I stayed on the Danforth for a few weeks when we first moved and that lovely neighborhood was a wonderful taste of the community in Toronto.
