On Thursday, May 31st, Convocation Hall at the University of Toronto celebrated its centennial anniversary. Thursday’s ceremony included the announcement of extensive renovations to the building. Plans call for a renewal of the circular foyer, increased accessibility and replacement of selected seating. These enhancements will include all decorative finishes, historical millwork, lighting installations, and a fresh coat of paint to recapture the interior’s original colour scheme. Phase one of the work will begin this summer with the reburishment of some seats. A fundraising campaign is currently underway for the work with matching commitments from the UTAA and the University.
