Some of our favourite stories of 2015
This year we’ve published no fewer than 1,445 stories about your community. These stories cover a lot of topics, such as: transformative donations, research breakthroughs, student achievements, faculty awards, labour negotiations, food court constructions updates (which are widely popular), and of course, stories about parking.
With all these stories, you may have missed some. So, the UM Today team thought we’d share some of our favourites with you from this past year.
