OTL @Keele


D-Frosh training is officially complete, and tomorrow is already the big day!!! Tomorrow the Frosh will be moving in and we are more than ready!  The D-Frosh spent all day Thursday and Friday this week at the Keele campus with the other York colleges completing “Orient the Leader,” a fun-filled program of activities preparing the D-Frosh for the week to come.  What a success it was!  We began the two-day period with a cheer off between colleges, and I must say that the two days really demonstrated how much we’re loved at the Keele campus.  As Glendon students, we made sure that we sent the love right back.  Here are just a couple of pictures of our wonderful training days spent at Keele…

D-Frosh Training!!!

With Frosh week quickly approaching, our Frosh Coordinatiors and D-Frosh have been busy pulling together the finishing touches of what will be an amazing week.  Notre semaine d’orientation commence samedi le 5 septembre, mais il y a encore beaucoup à faire pour préparer!  With only 4 days left to go, there is still plenty of preparation left to do, so we will continue to keep ourselves busy.  Merci à ceux et celles qui sont venus aujourd’hui!  We started off our busy day today with ice breakers and cheers, followed by Frosh kit stuffing (which went impressively well, an excellent indication of what this year’s Frosh week is going to be like), and ending with quality family time and construction.  Voici quelques photos de jour #1…Here are some pictures of training day #1…

Stuffing Frosh kits!

Désirez-vous une POUTINE?

Si vous voulez un petit goût de la belle province, je vous encourager à commander une poutine aux deux restos ici à Toronto. Pas exactement des poutines authentiques MAIS elles sont proches.  With j’EXPLORE underway on campus at Glendon and more francophones in the city, poutines are the way to go – especially if you don’t order them from places like Harvey’s, Burger King, or the tourist-friendly poutine in front of City Hall. These two very recently opened and have quickly become a big hit with Torontonians who are in the know:

  1. Smoke’s Poutinerie ( – located by Adelaide/Simcoe, close to St. Andrew station – this place offers you some hefty boxes of delicious fries, gravy, and cheese curd goodness – with a whole array of different toppings to choose from. Apparently the pulled pork is supposed to be the best- personally, it makes the poutine taste wierd in my opinion. Go for the Veg. Beware: order too big a box and you’ll find yourself struggling to finish it on your own. 7 – 10$ ish.poutine1
  2. Poutini’s House of Poutine – ( a bit farther out west on Queen, past Trinity Bellwoods Park and smack dab in the middle of Ossington and Dufferin Sts, this is Toronto’s newest and hottest poutine place (started by the Laliberté brothers), and the prices are well worth the trek. Served in a cup/bowl instead of a box, look out because this place just might be Cash-Only. It’s looking pretty promising so I’m hoping to check it out soon enough! 6 – 7$ ish.poutine2


It’s a crazy thought, but school begins IN 10 WEEKS! The majority of us should by now, have begun selecting and enrolling in courses for next year.The best part is that many things are well underway, and recent visits to Glendon might give you a glimpse of many of the new things coming for next year:

  • school entranceway facelift
  • MASSIVE frosh week preparation by a highly motivated and talented committee
  • Lunik Café
  • *special/secret*upcoming GCSU initiative for September
  • The Bilingual Challenge

Read up on these things as they come up, right here on
