Graduation, and My Department

So I had my convocation today (well, I guess yesterday now, since it's after 12) at UofT. I'm officially a graduate now, degree and everything. It's nice, though a little odd, being done.

Anyhow, I'm going to take this opportunity to post a few things about UofT that I've been meaning to do for a while.

Department of Classics
I did a double major in comp. sci and classics. The classics department moved during this past semester and, I have to say, I love the new building.
The Lillian Massey Building (formerly the Department of Household Science) is right at Bloor and Museum, putting it right across the street from the ROM, which I feel is appropriate. The building has been nicely renovated but still has an old and impressive feel suiting the subject. The new lecture rooms are quite nice, and the department has a lot more office space than they did at their old St. George street address. The building was used for the offices of the Ontario Ombudsman for the past few years and also leased by Club Monaco, who are still there. It really is rather amusing (at least, I feel it is), that the building houses the Departments of Classics and Club Monaco.
