The large area on the main floor of Weldon has been cleared out to make way for the new Teacher Support Centre, explained Joyce Garnett, Western's university librarian.

"We have roughly 25 per cent more first year students than last year," said Sheila Embleton, VP-academic at York University. "[The faculty] did a lot more detailed planning this year to prepare," she added.


$20,000 tuition - for kindergarten

For the first time in its 174-year history, Upper Canada College - one of Canada's most prestigious all-boy independent schools - has begun offering full-time senior kindergarten classes to children with parents willing to pay $19,500 in tuition per year, said Julia Drake, communications manager for UCC.
