Town of Uxbridge site In 1877, seventeen-year-old Leacock started at University College (University College, Toronto) at the University of Toronto, where he was admitted to the Zeta Psi fraternity. His first year was bankrolled by a small scholarship, but Leacock found he could not return to his studies the following year because of financial difficulties. He left university to work as a teacher — an occupation he disliked immensely — at Strathroy (Strathroy, Ontario), Uxbridge (Uxbridge, Ontario) and finally in Toronto. As a teacher at Upper Canada College, his ''alma mater'', he was able simultaneously to attend classes at the University of Toronto and, in 1891, earn his degree through part-time studies. It was during this period that his first writing was published in ''The Varsity (The Varsity (newspaper))'', a campus newspaper. The settlement was founded as an agricultural community by John Dryden (John Dryden (MLA)), Ontario's Minister of Agriculture in 1895.
