Becoming a Babe (in Boyland)

by Anne Miller, '97

Driving up with my parents in our packed van to Frosh week 1993 I was telling myself that of course I would be in the girls’ residence building. After all, it had four floors and only one girls’ floor was in the boys’ building. The odds were definitely in my favour. But the cheery leaders told me I was ‘one of the lucky ones’ to be on Babes in Boyland.

Statement in solidarity with racialized communities

Renison University College rejects racism and hatred in all its forms and stands in firm solidarity with racialized communities. We declare our commitment to anti-racism in response to the recent murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the police-involved death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet in Toronto, as well as the other numerous incidents of racial violence that have led to the deaths of Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC) (Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Jason Collins, Eishia Hudson, D’Andre Campbell, Machuar Madut, among others).
