Health Coats (referred to as “Coats”) are a tradition among many health faculty’s all across Canada. When we graduate and become professional urban health professionals, policymakers, planners, changemakers, healthcare specialists, teachers, and doctors, we often are the ones keeping the backbones of society afloat. To remember and respect the public health professionals, doctors, and scientists who created our collective community services fields we wear lab coat to symbolize that the history of health is always evolving from the heart of us all.
At Toronto Metropolitan University the Frosh Leaders will Tie Dye our health coats to differentiate between us and the Faculty of Science white Lab Coats. Community Services is about highlighting our different pedagogy practices in improving our urban communities health through our collective diverse backgrounds, plus skill sets.
A popular FCSS tradition is our annual silent disco rave during SLC Live! FCS Community Services students know how to party and we love to show off to the other faculty's how vibrant our nightlife can get.
