4. Attend our public events.

As a recent graduate you already know about the Daniels Faculty's robust series of public events, which include lectures, debates, panel discussions, exhibition, and book launches. We hope you will continue to attend as alumni, and that the speakers, exhibitions, and events held here inspire and inform and provide an opportunity for you to network and build connections that will serve you well throughout your career.

Studio and thesis reviews are an exciting time at the Faculty. Sit in on some presentations without having to worry about your presentation coming up next. 

6. Volunteer as a mentor.

Current students are often interested in connecting with alumni to learn about their experiences. Receiving feedback on the development of their portfolios is a common request. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, please contact John Cowling at


7. Participate in anniversary reunions

Celebrated in May each year at U of T, Spring Reunion is a great time for alumni to reconnect with peers to share common interests and achievements. Interested in participating? Contact John Cowling at for more details!
