Perhaps it’s because so many students now commute, or are too focused on schoolwork, or are constantly plugged into their i Phones. The new dating site (loveatschool.com) created by computer science students Andrew Danks and Lori Lee, works just like other dating sites – you have a profile, a picture, likes and dislikes – but with one important difference: all users have registered U of T email addresses.

“Slushie” – the screen name of a third-year international student – joined [email protected] T a few months ago.

my list of the top (or bottom, depending on how you look at it) five worst pieces of advice you hear in grad school. Really, the list could be endless—there’s an unfortunate number of people who are spouting terrible things on this subject, all the time.

If your memories of dating at U of T include scoring a night out with that handsome stranger in the Burwash lunch line, or meeting a new gal each week at Con Hall, then you’re one of the lucky few who found dating easy – or you attended university a long time ago.

Today’s students typically complain that it’s tough to meet anyone at U of T, much less date them.

And because many advisers think that stress, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed (all potential signs of something more serious) are a normal part of grad school, they are often reluctant to suggest students seek help. It might be a joke, but it’s one that reveals certain heteronormative gender expectations. I simply did not hear this piece of advice directed at me as a woman.

Better advice: If you are feeling depressed or overwhelmed, contact your university’s counseling center. Instead, I received somewhat different advice from women who’d been to grad school: Only date someone in grad school if you think you will be in a long-term relationship with them.

The seminar introduced students to methods of dendrochronology and architectural history.

“The church has extraordinary wall paintings and a complex architectural history from the 12th-16th centuries AD,” Manning said.

“Students discovered that mundane things like the bottoms of worn-looking doors and the ends of wood beams high up in walls turned out to preserve key historical information,” Manning said.

“The saying about 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration was also discovered literally to be true, again, as hard work and care were needed to get every sample including forensic cleaning and sanding to get useful scans of the worn bottoms of some historic doors.” The seminar was organized as part of an ongoing collaboration between The Science and Technology in Archaeology Research Center (STARC) of The Cyprus Institute and the Cornell Tree Ring Laboratory and the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus.

“Students got to see and be with this history, were also taught how to apply dendrochronology and then actually assisted in the dendrochronological sampling of several elements of this church.” Dendrochronology or tree-ring dating has been a recognized scientific technique since the early 1900s.
