PCL302 Past Test Sales and PHOXIE

Hi All!!

We hope you’re having a great first month back at U of T.  The PTSA would just like to remind you about a couple of events that are coming up in the next week.

PCL302 Past Test Sales

The PTSA will be selling PCL302 past tests for $7 a package. Each package will include all PCL302 term tests for the school years 2006-2010, as well as the final exam for 2006. We’ll be selling them on Monday September 24th from 2-3 pm and Tuesday September 25th from 9 am-10 am. You can find us in the area between the Medical Sciences Building and the Fitzgerald Building. Turn right as you exit the FG103 classroom and keep going forward until you hit the first exit that leads to the stairs attached to MSB. We will be right outside, please ensure you have exact change to help sales move as smoothly as possible. Thanks for your patience and good luck on the term test! If any of you have questions, feel free to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


Reminder to all second years that PHOXIE is going to be this Wednesday, September 26th from 12-2pm at Croft House in UC. We’ll have signs put up around UC to direct you if you can’t find it. Also we’ll have hoodie order forms there, so if you haven’t bought a hoodie yet remember to order one then!!
