What Our Students Say

I really enjoyed getting to meet so many new people. I enjoyed spending time with my mentor and gaining insight on how to make the best of my time here. I honestly wish the program were longer.

Alexandria Ramoutar

My time at U of T has been profoundly enriched by the leadership opportunities I had at Hart House, and my hope is to champion similar opportunities for fellow students.

Coco Lee, winner of the first Audrey Hozack Award

At Hart House I can meet amazing artists, be surrounded by supportive and experienced people such as Barbara Fischer, develop my skills in arts research, and learn more about the Toronto arts scene.

U of T Student

I have been able to work to not only promote, but also encourage the accessibility and diversity of spaces – which is exciting in so many ways, especially for the future of Hart House and hopefully the university.

U of T Student

Being able to engage students across disciplines and years of study through their shared passion for music – and helping them realize that despite how large U of T may feel, there is still a community to belong to – is the most rewarding part of my experience at Hart House.

U of T Student

I think that the student community and programming at Hart House is very rewarding in both personal and career goals, and has helped me gain self-confidence and feel accomplished with what I've done as a team with other people there.
