Today Megan and I visited the Humber College North Campus. It is one of five campuses that we plan to visit to help Megan decide where to go next year.
The campus is quite close to home – only about 15 minutes by car – and easily accessible by public transit.
I was surprised to learn that there are about 20,000 students on the north campus.
I picked up Megan from school just before lunch and we headed over. We were provided with good directions and a parking pass. Campus restaurants have changed since I attended with many of the fast food restaurants one would expect to find at the mall’s food fair also showing up on campus.
Humber is building a new modern looking library which will be completed in time for the start of classes in 2015, but much of the campus looks like it was built in the heyday of the brutalist architectural style of the 1960s and 1970s.
Megan described the campus as a “cross between a high school and a mall”.
I discovered that there is a restaurant run by the cooking school that looked quite interesting and reasonably priced. Michael and I might go there for lunch some time.
