Nice but a big campus...

Law Student (Current Employee) North York, ON (Canada)

ProsBeautiful campus, secluded and peaceful

ConsEvery building is far apart by large so will likely have to travel all over. Kinda secluded, have to take a bus and a subway to get to the Yorkdale mall or downtown and transit system shuts down a 2 so if you're having too much fun at a bar downtown and forget the time-limit.... good luck coming back unless you pay the taxi man like $60

Advice to Senior ManagementAsk students how the campus can be improved, i.e. add pool tables in the common areas, and then actually follow thru.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
