A Toronto-based (free) activity to do for each day of the week for students

You probably know I have a lot of time on my hands right now, which means I have a lot more reason to get out of my academic bubble and do other things, without feeling like I should be somewhere more important. The great thing about going to school in the city is being in…

9 productive things you can do when class is cancelled
