50th Anniversary Memory of the Week: J. Ben Greisman (BA 2008)

February 14, 2024

My favourite memories of Woodsworth College were of the fun we had on the Woodsworth College Co-Ed Ultimate Frisbee Team, on which I played from 2004-2008 during my undergraduate degree. We played other colleges like Trinity and University College, the Medical and Law School, etc., and we played really well and formed great friendships.

Woodsworth College also had a really fun Frosh Week, a beautiful, quiet area for studying with a great cafe, and an amazing dorm. 

Transferring in to University of Toronto from The University of King's College (I probably should have just gone to U of T right after high school, and I had already gotten in) was easy and wonderful because of Woodsworth College.

Thanks, WDW!

After Graduation...

I have been a public affairs and consumer insights market researcher ever since graduating, serving national and international clients from management consulting firms, charities, and within the Ontario Public Service.

I also met my future wife while at U of T, and we have been together for 17 years, now with two daughters.
