As Toronto Metropolitan University marks a milestone birthday in 2023 – 75 years since the institution was founded – we take a look back in time. Three alumni recall the part they played in historic moments – receiving the first PhD; launching a company at the DMZ; and winning the first national varsity sports championship in 2018. We also remember what people were reading, watching on TV and seeing in the news in three pivotal years. And we take a walk through the archives to see what campus was like in the early days. All part of the rich history of TMU.
