September 1, 2016
As a political science and history major, Mark Slade found U of T to be long on openness and ideology, and short on attitude or arrogance. He says that environment shaped him. “It helped me become a person that is more open-minded who could listen to people,” he says. What also helped him was the passion and enthusiasm of his professors. “I can’t name how many outstanding professors I had. I learned that you have to believe in what you’re doing. So many of my professors believed wholeheartedly in what they were doing.”
