Toronto Centre ...
University of Toronto Astronomy Team at the CNE
Where: The Canadian National Exhibition, Princess Margaret Fountain near the Better Living Centre.
When: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

If you can't make it out to any of these events, you can make your own solar eclipse projector. Again, safety should be a number one priority as there are risks of partial and complete blindness when looking at the sun without proper protection.
It's that time of the year again where we all have to wake up before 6 am and stress about whether we can enroll in classes so that we get the better professors, we can have labs and tutorials with our friends, or we can have the schedule we want to ease our semesters!
Here are the significant dates for your enrollment appointments:
1st years: August 8, 6:00 am EST
2nd years: August 16, 6:00 am EST...
3rd years: August 14, 6:00 am EST
4th years: August 10, 6:00 am EST
It is important to note that these dates are for those who participated in course intentions last year.
Tip: Make sure to put all the classes and tutorials you want to add or swap in your shopping cart before your appointment dates. This will lessen the stress of having to find your classes and also increases your chances to get in the class before it gets filled.
